Do you believe in magic?
Our main attraction for this offer is visiting the top of Golden Rock Mountain with an open truck from the base camp of mountain which takes about 1 hour. It is a small pagoda (7.3 meters (24 ft)) built on the top of a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by devotees. It is the third most important Buddhist pilgrimage site in Burma after the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Mahamuni Pagoda. A glimpse of the “gravity defying” Golden Rock is believed to be enough of an inspiration for any person to turn to Buddhism.
