Lookout · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice view. Poor sunset due to all the rubbish burning
  • If long live
  • The Golden myanmar.
  • 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. The temple is not accessible by Grab apps so you have to call or hire a driver unless you choose to hike. It is not advisable to go by Thonebane unless he/she is a very skillful driver. Overall it was a pleasant experience and worth visiting.
