DAY (01) Yangon – Bago – Golden Rock

kyaik-htee-yo-02Golden Rock (Kayiktiyo) is one the most important pilgrimage sites for Myanmar Buddhist and maybe one of the strangest sites (miracle) for foreign visitors. A rock (gold gilded) with a small stupa (15th feet) built on top of it, is balancing on the edge of a mountain and looks as if it could tumble down into the ravine below at any moment. Buddhist believe due to some hairs of Buddha brought by a holy hermit enshrined into that hermit’s head shape rock prevent the rock from falling. People who want to get a hiking can do there and the site can be reached after a short walk (1.5 hours from Hermit Hill base camp or a long walk (about 6-7 hours from the first base camp. Surrounding the Golden Rock are many local souvenirs shops, pagoda accessories selling shops and shops selling Burmese traditional medicinal products made off indigenous animals found by the hunters living in the jungle in this region.
