kyaikhtiyoIt is the largest domestic tourism centre located about 160 km from Yangon. It stands on a gilded boulder precariously perched on the edge of the hill over 3615 feet above sea-level. There are many legends about the pagoda and Nat (Spirit Gods) shrines along the way from the base camp to the pagoda. There is also a popular belief that a person gains in wealth every time he climbs the hill. It is a test of one’s endurance and is very exhilarating once a person has reached the summit. Kyaikhto Hotel located on the hill side is in full view of the pagoda. The season of pilgrimage is from October to May. Coaches can now reach upto the platform of the pagoda. It can also reached by trekking from the base camp. Porters and palanquins are available to carry luggage and pilgrims who are too old or weak.
