Mandalay Hill which towers above the city and the flat plain below. Virtually all visitors and pilgrims to Mandalay either climb the 1,729 steps of the covered southern stairway with its magnificent guardian chinthe at the entry, use stairways on the other sides or use easier means and take the escalator, cars or buses to the top. From its top, and from several way-stations along the ascent, one has a magnificent panorama of the city, the old Royal Palace and Fortress, as well as the Ayeyarwady

It can be seen from the Ayeyarwady  River as far away as 60 km in clear weather. Mount Popa is perhaps best known as a pilgrimage site, with numerous Nat temples and relic sites atop the mountain.

Mount VictoriaMount Victoria, Myanmar (Burma)

Mount Victoria is the tallest peak in mountainous Chin State and the third highest in Myanmar.   is set in the stunning and little-visited Nat Ma Taung National Park, home to a variety of rare and beautiful flora and fauna and ethnic tribes known for their tattoo-faced womenfolk. The national park's biodiversity has led to it being awarded ASEAN Heritage Park status and of Outstanding Universal Value by UNESCO. There are so many great viewpoints and we can enjoy the beauty of Myanmar from here.

Mount ZwegabinMount Zwegabin, Myanmar (Burma)

Mt Zwegabin, about 7 miles south of town, which as well as being a respectable 2372ft, is also home to spirits and saintly souls. The two-hour hike to the summit is demanding – up to many steps and with aggressive monkeys as constant adversaries – but once at the top, the rewards are plentiful. It is one of the beautiful locations in Myanmar and a lot of tourists visit this place every year.
