Though the area is very arid, the mountains and surroundings are verdant and look like an ocean in the waste. Because of the fertility of the vulcanic ground and the many creeks in the area, the mountains and the national park contain many nice plants and other vegetations. Coming to Mount Popa means a trip through the countryside and the opportunity to see Burma's small towns every where.
To reach the convent on the top of the hill, an ascent via a staircase with 777 stairs is necessary. On the way to the summit, there are stores that sell various objects such as woodwork and native cathedrals. There are apes everywhere along the stairs and in the convent itself who are always looking for nourishment.
At the top of the staircase are two huge gold-coloured chinthes, a lion-like critter that watches over the entry to most of Burma's wards.

A lot of people from all over Burma come to Mount Popa to worship the Nats, especially during the full-lunar feasts of Nayon and Nadaw. There are many stories about Mount Popa. Since Mount Popa is home to the 37 most revered Nats, most of them are occupied with ghosts of Mt. Nats. There is a story that King Anawrahta, who established the Bagan empire in the eleventh centuary, ordered a bishop called Byatta to get clean cathedrals from Mount Popa every single second.
And then one morning Byatta ran into an ogre called Mai Wunna, who was living on the hill and eating only flower. BYATATA falls in love with her and soon after gives mother to two children in a cavern on Mount Popa. They both became Nats, who still lives on the hill today.
Later, when the two children were put to death, they too became Nats. In Taungbyone near Mandalay there is an annually celebration in which the two brethren are devout. Mt Popa is situated in central Burma about 180 kilometres south-west of Mandalay and 50 kilometres south-east of Bagan and Nyaung U International Airfield.
