Northeast of the city center rises Mandalay Hill, a haven of monasteries and pagodas that remains one of prominent pilgrimage sites for Burmese Buddhists. Reaching an elevation of 224 m (735 ft), the hill's summit offers panoramic views that make the entire trip worthwhile. You can reach the top by taking one of four covered stairways, or a one-way road leading to an elevator.

Mandalay Hill Reviews
サンセットに間に合わず、結局二日連続で登頂しました。 ホテルのレンタル自転車で中腹のカー・ゲートまで登り、そこから歩いていきました。 初日は周囲のミャンマー人の後を追うように、そのまま自動車道を進みました。 ずっと緩い上り坂をだらだら歩くため大変疲れました。 エレベーター乗り場に到着しても順番待ちで、結局かなり時間がかかってしまいました。 二日目は中腹で自転車を降りた後、参道を進みました。 参道で... more »I was not in time for the sunset, so I finally went to the summit in two consecutive days.

On the stairs, it was a repetition of walking in the flat, and it was easy to physically on the first day of the statue, statues, pagodas, etc. on the way. The location of the summit was an hour before sunset, so I could afford it. It is crowded about 30 minutes ago. During the day, it's hot in the new year, but it's chilly. The first day was a short-sleeved short bread, and after dark, I wore fleece, but my feet were cold, so the second day was wear.
