Visit Mount Popa on a trip to Myanmar

Mount Popa

Mount Popa is a volcano in Myanmar and on top of it lies a monastery. Quite a unique location for a monastery! Mount Popa is located about 60 km southeast of Bagan. This remarkable mountain is in fact an extinct volcano and comes out of nowhere. A peculiar sight indeed. As far as the Burmese are concerned, this is their Mount Olympus. They believe nats (holy spirits) live here and you should visit Mount Popa on a trip to Myanmar!
