We meet in Yangon (previously known by its colonial name, Rangoon) to explore this exotic awe-inspiring Asian city and former capital. Visit stunning, gold-plated, Shwedagon Pagoda rising high above the glorious tree lined boulevards. Continue to Bagan, the captivating "land of five thousand pagodas," built from 1050 to 1290 A.D. Then a two-day cruise up the Irrawaddy River floats us to Mandalay to enjoy some of the city's best sites: a stroll along the world's longest teak bridge and a sunset climb up Mandalay Hill for astounding views. Another highlight of the trip is Inle Lake known for floating gardens, "leg rowing fishermen" and entire villages built on stilts. Here you can see how an entire culture can spring up in a place you may have thought it impossible to thrive in.
Various short treks allow us to get close to the people and experience first hand their hospitality and culture as well as some spectacular scenery. The Eastern Himalaya, widely acknowledged as one of the world's most charming and beautiful areas, is also the habitat of the Bengal tiger and one of the last homes of the snow leopard. The region is a hotspot for wildlife and biodiversity with a huge number of species. You're about to set off on a unique and extraordinary adventure in the mystical and magical area that is Myanmar!
