The Golden Rock.

Simultaneous object of veneration and tourist attraction for pilgrims of origins both near and far.

I highly recommend the ascent for dawn.

    I enjoy your blog! This particular post drew my attention because I will be traveling to Myanmar in January and hoping that I’ll have enough time to visit Kyaiktiyo.

      Thanks! If you make it there, I highly suggest the overnight walk to the top for dawn. It was a bit of a hike, but totally worth it.

    Like a huge gold nugget that never falls down!
    I remember a TV show I saw in my childhood. Ever since, from time to time I’m thinking of visiting this place. Still, it remains a dream… one day, I’ll explore Burma/Myanmar.
