Golden Rock

Golden Rock is certainly worth seeing, in some ways just to see the many Burmese who come from far and wide to see it and the emotion it draws. It sits on Mt Kyaiktiyo and is said to be perched on a strand of the Buddha’s hair. The road up there is a little bumpy, and its worth seeing this amazing site at sunset and sunrise, so a stay in the nearby Mountain Top Lodge is recommended, although being pretty simple in terms of accommodation.
