Mt Popa, Popa
Climb to the top of a 1,518 m (4,981 ft) tall extinct volcano at Mt Popa, a scenic sacred volcanic mountain lying 50 km (31 mi) from Bagan. With over 200 springs and brooks, the mountain makes a great hiking area, its huge 1.6 km (0.9 mi) wide cauldron-like volcanic depression and debris landslide paying testament to the awe-inspiring power of nature. Considered the main abode of the most powerful spirits in Myanmar, the area also houses the country’s most important temples, which blend ancient folk religion with Buddhism. Perched on a huge volcanic plug, Taung Kalat Monastery--with its gilded stupas--offers spectacular panorama, which you will reach after a steep climb of 700 steps. Bring food and water along if you want to conquer the peak, and beware of the thieving macaque monkeys. Using our custom trip planner, Popa attractions like Mt Popa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

寺院はタウン・カラット（標高737m）と言う隣のポッパ山（１５１８ｍ）の側火山の頂上にありますが、狭い場所です。私は寺院へは登らず、隣のポッパ山の中腹にあるホテルへ行き写真だけ撮りました。 more »The temple is located at the top of Mt. Poppa (1518m) next to town carats (737m altitude), but it is a small place. I went to the hotel on the side of Mt. Poppa next to the temple and took only the photograph.
Better call it mount poopa. It is a nice place to see. But walking around bare footed with all the monkeys is less appetizing. Be sure to bring some wet tissues to clean your feet. At the entry you can dispose of your shoes in lockers.
One of the best place to see the sunset in Bagan! A lot of monkeys along the way to the top of the mountain! Love from Vietnam!
