Day Trips » Bagan Half Day - Tant Kyi Adventure

...

Duration : Half Day

Route :

Tant Kyi is one of four temples entwined in the Shwe Daw Lay Su legend of King Anawratha. The tale states that the King was given a replica of Lord Buddha's tooth and he placed this on the sacred elephant's back and set him free. The elephant stopped at four places around Bagan and later the King built stupas at each of these locations. Thus the local Burmese believe that by visiting all four of these places in one morning your wish will be fulfilled.

Bagan Half Day Tant Kyi Adventure

After breakfast at your hotel, your private guide welcome at hotel lobby and start exciting trip to Mount. Tant Kyi.
Tant Kyi is one of four temples entwined in the Shwe Daw Lay Su legend of King Anawratha. The tale states that the King was given a replica of Lord Buddha's tooth and he placed this on the sacred elephant's back and set him free. The elephant stopped at four places around Bagan and later the King built stupas at each of these locations. Thus the local Burmese believe that by visiting all four of these places in one morning your wish will be fulfilled.
Begin with a scenic boat trip across the Irrawaddy River by private boat. Enjoy snacks and tea as you make your way past small boats and river islands. Upon arrival take a short walk through the local villages - typical of the many villages that are found along the Irrawaddy- to the base of Tant Kyi.
You have the option of joining the locals on the hike to the top, or traveling by local jeep. The walk takes around 1 - 1.5 hours and although it is uphill all the way, there are plenty of places to rest. You will be rewarded with fabulous views of the Irrawaddy and temple plains of Bagan in the distance. Similarly the views of Tant Kyi on the hilltop change as you get closer. (For the jeep option, a back road is followed and there are no views of the river until you reach the top)
Upon reaching the top, spend time at the temple. Watch the locals as they make their offerings, enjoy the spectacular panoramic views and rest in the cool shade of the temple grounds.
Nearby are a few small caves with unusual Buddha statues resembling the style found in the Rakhhine state.
After your visit return down to the base by jeep (around 25-30 minutes) where your boat will be waiting. Relax and enjoy as you cross back to Bagan. Transfer back to hotel.
