Mount Popa

Mount Popa

5 hours - Activity Level: Active
On the way to Mount Popa, stop at Shwe Hlaing village. The people here make their living producing various items from the toddy palm trees. Mt Popa is a place of great importance to the Burmese, as they believe it is the home of 37 Nats, ancient Burmese animist spirits. The shrine is located on a volcanic plug, Taung Kalat. Your guide will accompany you up the almost 900 stairs to the top. Along the way, you will learn about nats and nat worship as you climb past many shrines and see many local pilgrims. Your hard work is rewarded, as the view over the Myingyan Plain from the top of the volcanic peak is quite impressive. After returning to the base of the shrine, begin the drive to Popa Mountain Resort for your lunch. Then transfer back to Bagan.
