Mount Popa Reviews & Ratings

  • Better call it mount poopa. It is a nice place to see. But walking around bare footed with all the monkeys is less appetizing. Be sure to bring some wet tissues to clean your feet. At the entry you can dispose of your shoes in lockers.

  • One of the best place to see the sunset in Bagan! A lot of monkeys along the way to the top of the mountain! Love from Vietnam!

  • Nice little workout. View's ok. Few steps nearing the too but not bad on the knees.

  • Lovely place. Nice a hike especially if the weather is good

  • Incredible space with a lot of amazing ghosts to observe.
