This Pagoda is situated on top of a hill from where can see Mandalay town. It was raining on the day we visited this place and I still recall the tranquilizing sound of running water which made the the enchanting temple even more beautiful. The...More

It was not worth going there, the temple is not interesting, at least I do not like this modern shiny kitsch style, but people go mainly for the view, but if it is a hazy day you won't see much.

Either you can start at the bottom and work your way up or have your vehicle park at the top and walk down. Kinda hot during the day better go there during cooler months and spend time to see the sunset. Crowded during tourist season.

Mandalay Hill is worth to visit. You'll have a view over the city and all the pagodas and there are a lot of monks upstairs. You have to pay 1000 kyat/person as a tourist.

The view from here is impressive and gives one a good perspective of the city. It was cool too, which was nice!

The main attraction here is the sunset over Irrawady. It is really not that great either. It is far too crowded and exit the compound once the sun sets can be quite nightmarish.

A lot. Good hike. Can be very hot and very crowded. Plan accordingly. We climbed in the morning to avoid crowds and heat...but missed sunset views. 😄
