  • We left our hotel at 3: 00 in the morning on a scooter, to arrive at the foot of the Zwegabin a little before 4: 00: time at which we hear the monks sing/chant. This background, the starry sky and being absolutely alone gave an atmosphere almost of science fiction. We put a little less than two hours to reach the Summit by taking our time, by making small breaks to recover, thighs suffer. We were delighted to not completing the climb in full heat (but have still not avoid to be soaked with sweat!). Look up: the stars and the lights of the cities on the horizon offer a sumptuous scene. Don't forget water, even if to the beginning we cross a first merchant of drinks and nibbles; another just before the end. Refueling won't be too! We arrived in time for the Sunrise: absolutely sublime. Tip: to attend the show, stand in front of the Golden stupa on its platform. No need to climb above (or on the platform of the antenna, but less glamorous) because with trees is not the Sun. Prefer to ride the last few steps (the most difficult, of course) after, once the day lifted, to contemplate the panoramic view from the other side. And good luck for the descent, the bruised legs and flageollantes! The next day, I was so sore that I couldn't walk... But worth it, definitely!
