Mount Popa

Mount Popa can be simply described as the “Mount Olympus” of Myanmar. Located to the southeast of Bagan, the road to Mount Popa passes several Burmese villages amongst toddy palms and farms of peanut, corn, sesame and grape. Stop to chat to the locals and you will doubtless be rewarded by an opportunity to sample the local spirit distilled from palm sugar. Mount Popa is a volcanic mountain and stands close to the smaller hill of Taung Kalat, home to 37 Mahagiri Nats or spirits which has a delightful Buddhist monastery sitting atop it which – if you can handle the 777 steps – is well worth a visit. Once here, you will attend an exciting track for trekking to the volcanic crater, riding and visiting the sandalwood plantation.
