Kty Hotel MyanmarMyanmar Kty Hotel
This is the best of all the Myanmar hostels we have ever been to during our 3-week-holidays! It was a beautiful room with a great view and the personnel was great. I' d strongly suggest your hotel to my friend. Thanks for the great times we had! Beautiful land, extraordinary locals and a great hotel!
It is a wonderful hotel in a breathtaking area. It was a great experience thanks to the very kind and supportive team. Beautifully situated, great mountain panorama! Pretty souls, vistas & rooms - a great night's sleep amidst the hectic pace and naturalness. Wonderful hotel and environment, great outlook & great ambience.
And not to forget the fact that the Golden Rock is easy to reach for sunsets and sunrises! I would give him 10 out of 10!
It is a great hideaway, far from the bustling town and yet only 2 leagues from the world-famous Golden Rock Pagoda, considered one of the most impressive places in the underworld.

Proud of our environmentally responsible and viable operations system, we are striving for a greener Myanmar. One of our environmentally responsible activities is the Minidamm, which was specially constructed on the site to collect mineral springs for the sole use of the hotel.

After lunch we travel through Kandawgyi Park and past the Karaweik Royal Barge.

Behold Shwethalyaung Buddha, who was born in 994 and is worshipped throughout Myanmar as the most beautifully situated Buddha.
Shortly before Bago you will see the Kyaikpun Pagoda with four 30 meter high Buddha statues sitting back to back. Coming from Bago you go to the small city of Kyaikto and on to the "base camp" Kinpun. After lunch, you take a lorry on a rough road about halfway up the mountains. At this point the trail goes up, which rises sharply to the legendary'Golden Rock'.
This unbelievable'Golden Rock' lies on the top of the hill and is said to be balanced thanks to a precise placement of Buddha's hairdry. Accomodation in hotel, Kyaikhtiyo. Hotel breakfasts. Morning hikers can return to the Golden Rock, about 10 minute walking distance from Kyaikto Hotel or 60 minute one.
