The Myanmar discovery circuit - Day 2 (evening) - Sunset as seen from the Mandalay hill and dinner at a local restaurant - The 13th of November 2015

We had to head up quickly (we fortunately took the elevator otherwise it would have meant 1,729 steps) so as to reach the summit of the Mandalay hill with its richly decorated shrines in time to watch the sunset but the moment we got there the verandas were filled with numerous foreign visitors and locals, once the hill is known as an important pilgrimage site for Burmese Buddhists.

The view from the top seemed phenomenal with the Ayeyarwady to the west crowned with pagodas and temples,  the rice-growing plains to the North and the city to the South, but photographing was particularly difficult taking into account the number of people and the odd pushing around.

Soon after having come down we stopped at a local restaurant to have another fabulous dinner to crown the day ...
