To travelers, it is the place for an enjoyable hiking and sightseeing experience as Mount Popa is situated inside a beautiful nature reserve with lush forests and streams. To the pilgrims that flock there every festival season, it is a place of spiritual mystique as the most powerful nats are believed to inhabit there. A visit to Mount Popa is not complete without hiking to the Popa Taungkalat monastery that rests high on one of its many hills.
