Mount Popa is close to the village of Kyauk Padaung, in the national park that has its name and 50 km from Bagan. Mount Popa has a monastery that takes the place of an extinct volcano. We got there on a day trip from Bagan. The best is the light of the mountain, with its monastery crowning the top. It is one of the places that is most visited by tourists and Myanmar. The rise is amazing, barefoot, surrounded by the people that are of ethnic nationalities and monkeys that are of surprising audacity, used to being fed, so you have to be very careful. Once up , the monastery is not great, it is no wonder, but it has wonderful views of the surrounding areas. You will find magic here.
Touring the beautiful and wonderful Asian country of Myanmar, and about 50 km from Bagan, I was surprised by this dormant volcano whose summit has a spectacular monastery. I found a place where you can take this photograph and see the spectacular scenery, worth seeing.
