View of Popa Taung Kalat (cooled volcanic lava formation from the ancient eruption - now a 736 meters high
hill with monasteries and pagodas) from Mt. Popa extinct volcano. 1518 meters high Mt. Popa is located 67 km
to the east of Bagan - a Buddhist archaeological site of Myanmar.
Usually visitors would climb the vertical ladders to the volanic cone to see monasteries, spirit houses, monkeys
as well as to listen to the old mythical stories. Climbing to the summit of Mt. Popa in the clear day would give
the chance to see the surrounding plain possibly including Bagan dotted with temples.
Photographer location is Popa mountain resort.
