Mandalay Hill, Mandalay

4.0
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.

  • I was not in time for the sunset, so I finally went to the summit in two consecutive days. I climbed to the car gate in the middle of the hotel by bicycle rental and walked from there. On the first day, I went to the car road as it was to follow the Myanmar people around me. I was very tired because I walked a lot of slack uphill. After arriving at the elevator, we waited in turn and it took a lot of time. After getting off the bicycle in the middle of the second day, I went to the approach. It is necessary to take off the footwear in the approach, but there is no problem even barefoot because the cleaning is quite good. Because the approach is basically a flat place and stairs, it is easy to walk because there is sharp. 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.

  • Starting from the lion statues, this is an impressive monument. Will be long way up, but you will find different small pagodas plus amazing views on the top. Totally recommended.
  • Must visit, at the top of the hill, you will see the nice view. The elevators used for going up only. When you back, you will need to use the ladder.
