Kyaikhiyo (Golden Rock)

One of Myanmar’s most visited sites, Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda is located in the small town of Kyaikhito, in the Mon state. This is 160 km away from Yangon, a 3.5 – 4 hour drive to the base camp, followed by a truck ride to Hermit Hill, and about a 1 hour hike to the Golden Rock. It is a 7.3 meters high pagoda erected atop a rock covered under layers upon layers of gold leaf – all delicately balanced on the precipice of a granite cliff. According to Burmese legend, this strange pagoda is kept in place by a single hair of the Buddha.
