info Inland the country rises in gently undulating slopes. The most noticeable feature is Popa Hill, or the Mt. Popa, an extinct volcano, to the south-east. The highest peak is 1518 metres (4,981 feet) above sea-level.

The volcano is known to be extinct since 250,000 years. The volcanic ash makes the surrounding plains fertile and the heights capture the moisture of passing clouds, causing the rain and to make this place an oasis in the middle of the hot plains of Bagan. Mt Popa has about 200 water streams around it. Hundreds of Monkeys dwell in this region.
