Golden Rock (Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda), 

over 1100 m above sea-level, is situated about 160 km (a 5 hour drive) from Yangon. It is one of the most visited places in Myanmar. This mystical pagoda stands on a gilded boulder precariously perching on the edge of the cliff and it seems to be standing against the force of gravity. According to legend this boulder was placed here in ancient times by the supernatural King of the Devas, a powerful being in Burmese mythology. Some say it is kept balanced by a delicately placed Buddha's hair inside the stone.

Pilgrims make the 11km climb up the hairpin path from the base of the mountain (Kinpun village) but you can take a one hour drive up in one of the authorised shuttle trucks to a terminus near the top. The trucks are fitted out with bench seats in the open trays, a typically Myanmar adventure. At the terminus, you commence a 45 minute hike up to the pagoda. There are numerous hotels at the foot of the mountain and one for tourists at the top, wich affords majestic views from this amazing vantage point.
