What is Golden Rock ?
Golden Rock (otherwise known as Kyaiktiyo Pagoda) is not only visually stunning, but one of the most important religious sites in Burma. Teetering on the very edge of a cliff as though poised to tumble into the valley below, it almost defies belief. There are several legends surrounding its existence, all of which hinge on the belief that the boulder is balancing on a strand of the Buddha’s hair.
Upon arrival to basecamp of Golden Rock , we are to take the open truck ( Public shared truck –taking minimum 45 minutes up to Golden Rock )to get to uphill truck station of Golden Rock . then we will take seven minutes walk to check in hotel and then take a short break before our visit to Golden Rock in the late afternoon .
