The strong Buddhist devotion and vibe inspired by the Golden Rock of Kyaiktiyo is so tangible and overwhelming that you will readily recognise it as one of the most spiritually infused places in Asia. The boulder precariously balanced at a cliff top is venerated for its miraculous survival in such a perilous position, and a much loved symbol for Buddhist pilgrims and travellers alike. Even for the most steely atheist it is hard not experience the palpable aura of Kyaiktiyo and its devotees. For those spiritual, religious or otherwise, it is a true highlight of Burma. So sit and settle, and let the spiritual seep in.
