One of Yangon’s leading landmarks is scheduled to undergo a rejuvenation process in re-plastering its golden sphere. The renovation is planned to take place between October 2018 and March 2019 in which the main stupa will be covered in scaffolds, giving visitors an obstructive view of its 100 plus -meter high stupa and spire from all angles.
According to a statement of pagoda officials, the official starting date of this gold plate offering ceremony of the Shwedagon Pagoda is said to be announced by earliest September 2018.
Asian Trails Myanmar regrets having to inform all concerned about this revered project around the country’s holiest Buddhist site and not being able to give an exact starting date of this massive undertaking. We are keeping close contact with the authorities for further information.
We will operate all confirmed itineraries that include a visit to the Shwedagon Pagoda as outlined. Should any changes be needed in offering alternative sightseeing in Yangon during this period, please contact our Yangon office via firstname.lastname@example.org.
