About this activity
Head south of the city center and witness the spectacular views from Mount Popa and the unique features of Salay Youk Sone wooden monastery

The beautiful historic features of Bagan are yours to discover on this day long tour that takes you from Salay’s Youk Sone Monastery to Mount Popa. Your journey begins when you are picked up right from your hotel by the tour staff and then led to the historic sights of Salay, a town about 15km south of Bagan where you will explore the Youk Sone Monastery. This old wooden monastery is filled with stunning wooden features, and decorated with traditional Myanmar arts and crafts. A visit to the Man Pagoda will reveal Buddha portraits and antiques adorned in laquer, gold and silver; truly a sight to behold. After a lunch at Popa Mountain Resort, your guide will take you up towards Mount Popa, with 777 steps towards the Nat (spirit) temples. This mountain is an extinct volcano 1,518m above sea level. Here you will learn about the ancient Burmese animist spirits said to still be residing inside. Finally, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Bagan for the evening, all the richer for the experience.
