In Mandalay you can offer alms and food to the monks and novices from the Mahagandayon Monastery before visiting the hundreds of stupas on Sagaing Hill.

Journey up to colonial hill stations set among the rolling pine-clad hills. Drift along the river, enjoying the atmosphere of river life and observe villages on stilts on the edge of a lake surrounded by high hills. Understand the power of a Buddhist relic at Kyaikhtiyo, also known as Golden Rock, where a huge rock perches precariously on the edge of a hill.
