Today, we excursion to Kyaikhtiyo (185 km, 4 hours drive). Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is a well-known Buddhist pilgrimage site in Mon State, Burma. It is a small pagoda built on the top of a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by devotees.

En route visit at Bago, Kyaikkhawine Monastery where a thousand monks living in this monastery (We can arrange to donate for lunch to the monks and the Buddhist monks requisites). Buddhist monks, however, eat only two meals a day. The sixth of the ten basic precepts that order monastic life is to abstain from taking “untimely” meals – with “timely” defined as between dawn and noon. So, the last meal of the day, at 11:00 am, is an important one.

The Kanbawzathardi palace of King Bayinnaung is some of the places of interests and then proceed to Kyaikhtiyo. Kyaikhtiyo is a major pilgrimage site for Buddhists.

From the base camp (Kinpun Sakan) take a public open truck ride up to the Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda (45 minutes). This is where you will find the famous "; Golden Rock";, a huge boulder precariously perched on the edge of a cliff face seemingly defying gravity. It is believed that Buddha's hair is precisely placed on the Golden Rock stupa thereby keeping its fine balance. Enjoy the panoramic view and walk back from the top of the hill to the base camp
