The golden rock is a must see in Myanmar but is not an easy ride. You have to catch a 45 minute "truck" full of people to the top of the mountain. Once you are there is very beautiful and peaceful. I do not recommend to do this attraction in 1 day trip.. You will regret it. Its better to... More

Took us 4 hours from Yangon to kimpun base to get a truck ride. YES TRUCK! you need to pay 2500kyatts for sitting at the back or 3000 for front seat (which only 5 people fits).  The journey from kimpun base was 45 minutes to the top of hill. And its thrilled the ups and downs road could make your... More

Apart from the magnificent view of the pagoda on the stone, the hanging rock on the cliff itself is magical, thus attracting tens of thousands of visitors everyyear

6000 kyats the entry fee, 5000 kyats the truck ride both ways and the guest houses there are not worth it to be honest. The Rock is nice. I guess it could be great if there is nice weather when you go wich was not the case for us.

The golden rock itself is beautiful and majestic. However the atmosphere is not that holy. There are too many people, it's noisy and you don't feel that you re standing at a holy place. the most positive experience is the trip by the truck that we took from the valley to go up to the mountain where the golden rock...

The golden rock is amazing, very beautiful and well ground surrounding. however we have rains all the time we were there so we did not have any good photo, we could enjoy much more if weather permit.

A sacred place for Buddhism in Myanmar, well worth visiting. The hike up the mountain is strenuous but perhaps less nerve racking than truck.

I read some mixed reviews from a while back on here so thought I'd give an update. To get to the mountain by truck it's 2500Kyt each way. It's 6000Kyt to get into/see the golden rock once you get to the top. It's a 20min walk to the rock from where they drop you off. There are restaurants, hotels and... More

This is the type of place that when you hear about it you would probably underestimate it, but it is definitely worth going to see. The Rock itself is nothing spectacular but it is the way it is balanced that gets you. You are left questioning how did it get there, and especially how it hasn't fallen when you see... More
