Popa Mountain Park

Popa Mountain Park Review

If you're tiring of temple-hopping and fancy sticking around Mt. Popa for the afternoon, bring your hiking shoes in the car and take to the trails. There are a handful, some leading to the rim of the volcano crater and others to waterfalls. The word popa comes from the Sanskrit word for flower, and as you're hiking up, you'll see how lush it is, and how the vegetarian changes with the altitude. This is a good hike on which to follow a guide; your driver should be able to find you one or you can ask at Popa Mountain Resort. From there to the crater can take up to five hours.
