Many people begin a stay at the one place that breaks out of the pancake flat plain, 230 m high Myanmar Mandalay hill. Visitors can taxi halfway up along a switchback road, where an escalator leads to the top and an elevator goes back down. Alternatively, you can make the half hour barefoot climb that take in numerous Myanmar Buddha and nat shrines; there are many pleasant places to stop for a rest or a drink on the way to Myanmar Mandalay hill. At the top the reward is a full panoramic vie. The hazy blue outline of the Myanmar Shan hills to the east, Myanmar Mandalay place to the south and the Ayeyarwady to the west.
