What people are saying:

walking up the stairs (legendary 777 steps) to see the monastery. my friend and I did not feel tired climbing the stairs. not a very big place on top but there a lot of short stories introducing the Nats (refers to The nats who are spirits worshipped in Myanmar and neighboring countries in conjunction with Buddhism) who lived in Mount Popa as we climbed up
