A Private Mount Popa Day Trip is a great opportunity for travelers to explore the mysterious Mount Popa and many other places in Bagan. During 8 hours, your local guide will introduce you interesting things of local life by visiting a colorful morning market in Chauk. An exploration of Salay and Mt Popa will give you the knowledge about monastic life and Burmese Buddhism. At the end of the trip, you will be impressive by the view over of Myingyan Plain from the volcanic peak.

Route of Mount Popa Day Trip: Chauk - Salay - Mount Popa - Bagan

Your full day Mt Popa and Salay excursion begins after breakfast, when your guide and driver will meet you at your hotel.

Begin with a drive south to Salay. After one hour we will make a stop in Chauk which has a colourful morning market to explore. It is a great place for local interaction and photos.

Continue to Salay (30 minutes) from which you will visit several sites including Yoke Sone Kyaung monastery, one of the oldest wooden halls in the area.

We then head east toward Mt Popa, an extinct volcano standing 1518 metres high. After arriving , we will first go to local restaurant for lunch.

You will have chance to learn about nats and nat worship as you climb the stairs to the top with your local guide. The view over the Myingyan Plain from the top of the volcanic peak is impressive (and the climb is optional).

Transfer back to Bagan late this afternoon.
