Mt Popa

Popa in Pali means flower. It is an extinct volcano, 1518 m above sea level, located 50 km South-East of Bagan. It is considered as the abode of 37 Spirits (Nat in Myanmar). Popa Spirit festival is held on full moon day of April. Although Buddhism had been introduced, many Buddhist still believe in Nat (spirit).

Popa area has over 200 springs and streams. Plenty of trees, medicine plants and flowers grow due to the fertile soil from the volcanic ash. It is therefore like an oasis in the desert-like the dry zone of central Myanmar.

It takes about 1 hours from Bagan to get there. One can make a stop the palm sugar work and Popa village on the way to Mt Popa. There is Nat shrine on the foot of Mt Popa. Take 777 steps to the top and enjoy the panoramic view of the Popa region.

Note: Be aware of the monkey there. They are sometimes aggressive.
