Golden Rock trip by car from Yangon (joint group tour)
- Golden Rock
- Magnificent sceneries
All about the trip
In the morning, between 5:00 to 5:45, you will be picked up at your hotel and transfer to the meeting point at the Golden Express office, from where the tour starts.
First stop of this tour is the Htaukkyant War memorial cemetery. This is the cemetery of Allied soldiers of the British Commonwealth, who died in the battle in Burma (Myanmar) during the Second World War. Please note, that this is just a quick stop on the way. The cemetery cannot be visited.
On our way to Golden Rock, we will stop for breakfast at Phayar Gyi Junction. After two and a half hours ride, we will reach the Kinpun base camp. Here you join an adventurous trip in an open public truck to reach the Golden Rock (additional fee). Taking the local truck is an adventure itself because roads here are very bumpy. You can also reach the Golden Rock Pagoda by a cable car. The cable car gate is situated halfway up the mountain. If you wish to reach the Golden Rock by cable car, you must pay cable car fares.
Upon arrival at the truck station, you will walk up to the Golden Rock pagoda, passing lots of vendors. Take this chance to take some colorful photos. On the top of the hill, you have plenty of time to not only admire the magnificent view of the mountain landscape but especially the legendary Golden Rock. Our tour guide will give you some interesting information about the Golden Rock. After you enjoy beautiful views at the Golden Rock, we will have lunch at a restaurant on top of the mountain. In the afternoon, we will go back to Yangon. There will be another stop by Phayar Gyi Junction for refreshments.
At the end of this tour, our tour guide will accompany you to your hotel in Yangon.
