About the Experience:
Ever wondered what a spirit looks like in its human form? Today you'll venture out from Bagan to the popular sight known as Mount Popa. Here you'll find Taungkalat Monastery, which is home to 37 Nats, or mythical spirits, and dominates the surrounding landscape. Discover the stories behind the legends of every one of these Nats as you make your way up to the very top of the volcano.
