DAILY EXCURSIONS FROM BAGAN

MOUNT POPA
A 50 minutes' drive and 29 miles southeast of Bagan, make your ascent to the mystical place of Mt. Popa, the home of the nats. The mannequin-like display of the 37 nats at its base is one of the highlights of this excursion. Like pilgrims, you make the climb up the winding, covered walkway to the top. From there you are able to see the monasteries, stupas and shrines and experience the glorious views.
