Mount Popa Taung Kalat

Mount-Popa-myanmar(www_vietnamtourism-jsc_com)

Mount Popa is a volcano mountain in Central Burma of great importance as its considered the "Mount Olympus" of this country for its long history and significant religious status. But its more than just a mountain, Taung Kalat is a temple / monastery that acts as a volcanic plug. So yes, the summit is the monastery and it literally plugs the volcano. That's pretty unique and crazy. Mount Popa is very popular travel destination amongst the local Burma people as a pilgrimage.

  • Burma is, right after Afghanistan, second biggest producer of opium in the world. Why there are none regulations by OSN or ASEAN or whatever so far to decrease the numbers?
