Northeast of the city center rises Mandalay Hill, a haven of monasteries and pagodas that remains one of prominent pilgrimage sites for Burmese Buddhists. Reaching an elevation of 224 m (735 ft), the hill's summit offers panoramic views that make the entire trip worthwhile. You can reach the top by taking one of four covered stairways, or a one-way road leading to an elevator. For Mandalay Hill and beyond, use our Mandalay day trip planner to get the most from your Mandalay vacation.

A nice place to sight see.
You can view the entire Mandalay on top of this hill. For sunset seekers, this is definitely the place.

Overall it was a pleasant experience and worth visiting.
