Explore Bagan with a Local
Bagan with over 2000 Pagodas and Temples in upper Myanmar and you can visit Bagan all year round as there is no actual rainy Season like in the lower parts of Myanmar, therefore we called it Sommer Season. Bagan with their Pagodas and Temples dating back more than 1500 years of history is the most fascinating place for visitors.
The monuments which are now in all stages of decay were erected mostly from the 11th to 13th centuries A. D. , when Bagan was the seat of the Myanmar dynasty. In 1057 Anawrahta conquered Thaton and brought back to his capital the Theravada scriptures in Pali, a large number of Buddhist monks, and artists and craftsmen of every description.
Bagan is also a great place for beautiful local Art, such as Lacquer ware, Bamboo works and beautiful local made Cloth. Other attraction is a day trip to Mount Popa, 50 Km from Bagan to view the Monastery built on top of a Mountain, 1518 m(4981 ft) you only have to climb 777 steps to the top.
