Mt. Popa

Mt. Popa

Filled to capacity our truck bus run at full speed to Mt. Popa

Mt. Popa is well known the pre-Buddhist faith Nat's holy place, located 50km southeast from Bagan. As I heard there is one-day trip, I decided to go by local truck bus. At 08:30 next morning our vehicle left Nyaung-U village to Mt. Popa.



Way to Mt. Popa

Beautiful composite volcano Mt. Popa and rock-peak Taung Kalat

After 2-hours ride I noticed strange swell projecting skirt of volcano. "What is that?" "That is our goal Taung Kalat." Someone said. It was not until there that our today's destination was not Mt. Popa but unique rock-peak named Taung Kalat.

Approach to the top

Approach to Mt.Popa

Two white elephants guarded the Gate of approach



Temple on the top

Shrines on the top
Pagodas and shrines on the top were shined by the reflected light of the sun. "Fantastic! Now let's climb up."

Covered stone stairs get to there we had to climb up steep walkway for more 20 minutes without our shoes. "Barefoot! Oh it's nice."

Here and there you can see dung of wild monkeys. Be careful to your step.

Fierce Monkeys

Fierce Monkeys

This monkey wasn't male one that sprang me

I brought leftover from breakfast banana and sandwiches in my shoulder bag with intention eat at the top. Little later of my climb parent and child wild monkeys appeared in front of me. Immediately after that two big male monkeys sprang at my bag! I had fright with snarled wild animals. Visitors dispersed them to escape me. It was most terrible experience of my trip in Myanmar. Don't bring any foods to Taung Kalat with you.
