I recommend visiting - Mount Popa, Myanmar
Driving two hours southeast of Bagan the picturesque journey takes you past farmers working the arid fields then onto the lush landscape that surrounds Mount Popa. For many years Burmese spirit worshippers have journeyed from all corners of Myanmar on a pilgrimage paying respect to the Nats, or spirits, while stupas, monasteries and shrines adorn the crest of the rock pinnacle to keep a watchful eye over the surrounding area.
Mount Popa itself, a volcanic core, is steeped in history and tradition but what really attracts me to this fairy tale setting is that it could quite easily have been created in the mind of Hans Christian Andersen or J.R.R Tolkien with golden spires, rich vegetation, cotton wool clouds and welcoming locals add to the appeal. After exploring the mount itself the best way to witness the magic is from the hillside view point where you see Mount Popa, the temples, and the plains of Bagan in the distance.
