Tour Hightlights:
Many people find the trip to Golden Rock is the one unforgettable, it is far enough to avoid or take a break from the hectic city life to enjoy from the expanse rice-growing region that stretch your eyes endlessly, the scenic rivers bustling with passengers boats and fishermen, and changing of socio-economic landscapes as you entered into the land of the Mons, to the refreshing atmosphere of pristine green forests as you go up along the winding steep roads of Mt Kyaikhto. If you are already in Yangon, and can spare a couple of days, we highly recommend you to take a side trip to the amazing Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda (Golden Rock), one of the wonders of South East Asia. ..
