Early morning, drive out of Yangon to Bago (Pegu), about 2 Hours drive north east of Yangon. From Bago, drive through seemingly endless paddy fields to the small town of Kyaikto and on to the 'base camp' of Kinpun. In the afternoon, take a local truck up a bumpy track to upper camp of Kyaikhtiyo. The walk offers magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and the opportunity to make friends with the many local people who make the pilgrimage to Kyaiktiyo
