Yangon - Golden Rock
Welcome to Yangon and transfer to Golden Rock
From the moment you arrive in Yangon, you can expect first class service with a personalised meet and greet from our friendly driver. Let us help you with your luggage whilst you sit back, relax and enjoy a safe and comfortable drive to the Golden Rock. Kyaikhtiyo (Golden Rock) is a well- known Buddhist pilgrimage site in Mon State, Burma. It is a beautiful small pagoda (7.3 metres, 24 ft) impressively built on the top of a granite boulder and covered with golden leaves that were pasted on by its male devotees. According to legend, the Golden Rock itself is precariously perched on a strand of the Buddha‘s hair. The spectacular balancing rock seems to defy gravity, as it perpetually appears to be on the verge of rolling down the hill. The rock and the pagoda both sit at the top of Mt. Kyaiktiyo.
