Day 1 :
Yangon/ Kyaik Hti Yo
Tamarind tour guide will pick you up at your resident or hotel.
Drive thru a delta area en route to the Sittaung River and Kyaik Hti Yo.
Once your vehicle crosses the narrow wooden planks of the Sittaung Bridge, you will have just departed the State of Bago and entered the Mon State. The Mon state is renowned in Myanmar for producing the best durian fruit.
Mid morning, arrive at the base camp of Kimpun. From there, starts the pilgrimage path to the famous pagoda of Golden Rock, about 10 km away and at an altitude of 1200 meters. It is said that a relic piece of Buddha's hair keeps the Golden Rock precariously balanced that, rocks gently on windy days.
Transfer to the transit junction in a small cozy open truck followed by a thirty-minute scenic ride to your hotel. After lunch, hike to the Golden Rock enjoying many vendors displaying traditional medicated roots, spices, and refreshments.
(Tamarind recommends that while you are on your walk up to see Golden Rock, stop at a refreshment shop and enjoy the sweet cool juice from a fresh coconut).
