KyaikHtiyo

Kyaikhtiyo, the mystical pagoda stands on a gold gilded boulder, precariously perched on the edge of the hill over 1100 meters above sea level. Kyaikhto, the town at the foot of the hill, is about 160km from Yangon.
It is an 11 kilometers up-hill climb for the hikers from Kinpun base camp. There is also a steep winding road for 4 wheel drive cars form the base to the nearest point of the pagoda. There are many legends about the Pagoda and the ‘nats’ or ‘spirits’. It is believed by the Buddhist devotees that this Golden Rock Pagoda enshrines a hair relic of Lord Buddha.
