Day tour to Mt. Popa

Mount Popa is situated 28 miles or 45 km away from Bagan and is regarded as the birthplace of “Nats” of spirits in Myanmar. You will be picked up at your hotel, and taken by car to this extinct volcano, a 1.5hr drive away. Once you have arrived at the volcano, begin the ascent, which takes in 777 steps. Along the way you will pass by multiple shrines, and Nat holy sites, and learn about the many legends which surround the mountain. The walk will take you around half an hour, and the steps are not that steep. At the top of Mount Popa you will find a monastery, which offers incredible 360-degree views of the surrounding plains. Once you have descended, you will begin your journey back to Bagan, stopping off at a local tea shop for lunch, before being dropped off at your hotel.
