Private Day trip to Salay and Mt Popa

Visit two fascinating but lesser-known destinations, Salay and Mt Popa, on this private full-day tour from Bagan. Salay has been an important religious center for centuries, and has many monasteries to see, along with some British colonial-era buildings. Mt Popa rises abruptly from the plains, and its monastery is a pilgrimage destination for locals who pay tribute to the Nats (spirits).

The appeal in Salay is its large number of attractive monasteries. We will visit the Yoke Sone Kyaung Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries and famous or its wood carving. Continue on to Mt. Popa, which rose from the ground in a massive earthquake in 442 BC. Mt. Popa is famous as the abode of the Nats (Spirit Gods) and has a panoramic view of the surrounding plains.
