According to the Sasana Nwe Foundation of Mount Taungwine religious area, the pilgrimage and trekking season of the Mount Taungwine located in Mawlamyine Township, Mon State, commenced on 2 December.
The season is projected to open for three consecutive months, from December 2023 to February 2024. During this time, the pilgrims will have chances to enjoy trekking and walking at the mountain.
Sayadaw U Vayama from the foundation said, “We opened the uphill lane last year for the trekkers, tourists, and pilgrims to use. This is the second year of allowing the trekkers to use the uphill lane in their trekking and pilgrimage journey. Since no cars or motorbikes are allowed to pass this lane during the season, those who enjoy walking and trekking will be safe on the lane.”
The report further states that visitors can enjoy viewing the sea of clouds on top of the mountain, not only pagodas, stupas, and temples. In addition, there will be shops that sell sportswear and fitness gadgets along the uphill way. Free parking services will be available for cars and motorbikes during the season.
In detail, no cars and motorbikes, apart from the responsible personnel and the vehicles of the monastery, will be allowed to pass the lane to the mountain from 4 am to 8 am. Moreover, shops and vendors are prohibited from selling on the concrete road to ensure the convenience of the visitors enjoying their journey to the mountain.
Mount Taungwine’s tour season first began in 2022. Visitors from Kyaikmaraw, Mottama, and Chaungzon mostly visit it. — ASH/ TMT
