Spectacular site. Big trip to get to from Yangon. The truck ride up is quite an experience. Stay overnight and do an early morning visit when the monks are out in full. Such a fantastic feeling at this site. Highlight of Myanmar trip for me.

Great place to visit and interesting to get an impression of the importance of this place to the locals. The way going up to the rock is fun too, going by truck up and down with all the locals.

From the truck stop you need to walk about 20min right to the rock. However, the temple entrance starts about 10 min from the stop. It was crowded and we walked slowly. It is a relatively flat walk and it is not a long... More
