Visit Golden Rock, Myanmar (Burma)

Balanced on the edge of a mountain, one of the most sacred Buddhist pilgrimages in Myanmar is the Golden Rock Pagoda. Over the ages the rock has been totally covered with gold leaf. You can also climb to the top.

Golden Rock, Myanmar (Burma)

The Golden Rock at Kyaiktiyo is one of the most sacred, must-see sights in Myanmar. The huge gold-leafed boulder balances precariously above you on the edge of a cliff. Topped with its glittering stupa, it's said to house a single Buddha hair that maintains its equilibrium. The rock has mysteriously remained in this fragile position despite the area suffering from major earthquakes in the past.
