Itinerary

The itinerary is detailed below. This is what you'll be doing during your stay!

23 Nov 2020Welcome to Myanmar

Today, you should arrive in Yangon International Airport and make your way to the hotel for check-in. Transportation from the airport is not provided, but there are plenty of taxis and the distance is not far. If assistance is needed, a meet-and-greet staff member will be present after customs have been cleared.

At the hotel, your tour leader and local guide will assist with the check-in and give you some information about the coming days. The rest of the day is free to explore Yangon on your own.

Meals: Not included 

24 Nov 2020Yangon sightseeing and flight to Mandalay

We'll begin our day with a Yangon Colonial Walking Tour to see a mixture of colonial buildings, churches, mosques (including Sunni and Shia) and a Buddhist monastery & ordination hall. The beautiful buildings reflect the diverse mix of religions in the city. Our next stop is one of the most iconic symbols of Myanmar: the Shwedagon Pagoda, which is considered by many to be the 'crown of Myanmar.' Legend holds that the pagoda is more than 2,500 years old and the central stupa is surrounded by dozens of intricately decorated buildings and statues. 

We'll enjoy lunch at a nearby restaurant where you’ll be able to taste the exquisite Myanmar cuisine.

After lunch, we’ll head to the airport to catch our flight to Mandalay. Flight time is approximately one hour and thirty minutes. After checking into the hotel in Mandalay, the rest of the day and evening can be enjoyed at your leisure.

Meals: Breakfast and lunch

25 Nov 2020Royal capital of Amarapura: U Bein Bridge, Mahagandayon Monastery, Mahamuni Pagoda & Kuthodaw Pagoda

After breakfast, we head off for more exploration of Mandalay and its surroundings. Starting from the ancient royal capital of Amarapura, we'll head to the U Bein Bridge, an impressive teakwood bridge that was built around 1850. Spanning 1.2km, it was once the longest wooden footbridge in the world, and is believed to be the oldest still standing. 

Next, we will also pay a visit to Mynamar's largest Buddhist monastery: Mahagandayon Monastery. It is home to more than 1,000 monks and monks-to-be.

Our journey continues to the highly revered Mahamuni Pagoda, where we will also see the work of local craftsmen. We will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant followed by a visit to what is known as the "World’s Largest Book," the Kuthodaw Pagoda, which houses the entire collection of Buddhist scripture.

Meals: Breakfast and lunch 

26 Nov 2020Cruise the Ayeyarwady River from Mandalay to Bagan

Following an early breakfast, our group will drive to the Ayeyarwady River, where a boat will take us on a leisurely journey to one of southwest Asia’s finest treasures: Bagan. The boat trip takes approximately 8-9 hours, and the atmosphere onboard is quite relaxed.

While underway, we will witness life along the river and cruise past cities, monasteries, and pagodas. We will arrive early in the evening, just in time to witness a beautiful sight – golden rays of light as the sun sets over the grassy plains of Bagan and its more than 2,000 ancient wonders.

The mystical landscape is sure to take your breath away.

Meals: Breakfast and lunch 

27 Nov 2020Bagan sightseeing

Today we get to explore the ancient area of Bagan. We’ll start with a visit to the Shwezigon pagoda, built in the 11th century by King Anawratha. Still an active place of worship, it stands today as one of the most astonishing and well-kept pagodas in all of Bagan. It was also the original design template for Myanmar's distinct pagoda style.

We'll then continue to Ananda Temple, a whitewashed masterpiece of Mon architecture. With its four standing Buddhas and adjacent brick monastery with well-preserved 18th century murals, this temple is one of Bagan's most significant. We'll finish our sightseeing tour with the lesser visited pagodas at Tayok Pyi Paya and the village of Minnanthu, both part of Bagan Temple Marathon running course.

Back at the hotel, the rest of the afternoon is free to relax and prepare for tomorrow’s race. In the evening we'll carbo-load with a pasta dinner in the hotel or at a nearby restaurant.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

28 Nov 2020Race Day

Today’s the big day! After a very early breakfast at the hotel, we hop on a bus to Htilominlo Temple where the marathon, half-marathon and 10K races start and end. Running amid the pagoda-studded landscape, we’ll experience Bagan in all its glory and pass by small picturesque villages and farmland. After the race, enjoy some snacks on the steps of the iconic Htilominlo Temple. Shuttle busses will take all participants (runners and spectators) back to the hotel where the rest of the day and evening can be enjoyed at your leisure. 

Here you can read more about the race.

Meals: Breakfast and light lunch in the finish area

29 Nov 2020Explore Bagan and celebration dinner

Today is free to enjoy and explore at your own pace. For the early morning risers, we offer the classic Balloons over Bagan excursion - soar over the archeological area and watch as the temples sparkle and shine in the rising sun. 

Maybe you want to relax at the hotel with a cold drink or rent an e-bike and explore more of Bagan. If your legs can carry you, take a trip to Thatbinnyu Temple, also known as the temple of omniscience. Or why not pay a visit to one of the local villages or follow the running course to the majestic Dhammayangyi Temple for a closer look.

Perhaps you'd like to join another optional excursion after the balloons, in which case come to our Bagan cooking class and whip up a delicious meal. Or if you're keen to see more of Myanmar, we'll be back in time from our balloon flight to join the excursion to Mount Popa, an extinct volcano with an impressive monastery atop a volcanic plug. 

In the late afternoon, all participants will meet again and the rest of the evening is dedicated to celebrating our achievements of the prior day. A festive dinner and an awards ceremony will lead to an unforgettable evening.

Meals: Breakfast and celebration dinner

30 Nov 2020Farewell Myanmar or Hello Extension

Magical Inle Lake

Famous for their special leg rowing technique, the Intha people are one of several hill tribes living on and around Myanmar’s second largest lake. Beautiful floating gardens dot this vast lake and make for a meditative landscape to sail around. On shore, crumbling stupas at the foot of the mountains enhance the dreamlike scenery and it is almost as if you are on a different planet. If the included guided tours aren’t enough, you can rent a canoe and paddle through the calm waters or take a bicycle and explore the lush countryside in the afternoons. Either way, Inle Lake is balm for the soul.

  • Day 1 - 30 Nov: Heho and Inle Lake

    After breakfast, we'll head to the airport and take a short flight to Heho. En route to Nyaung Shwe - a town which functions as the jumping-off point to Inle - we'll visit the Shew Yan Pyay Monastery, a beautiful red-painted teak building from the 19th century. Once we reach Nyaung Shwe, we'll stroll through the local morning market before sailing to Inle and checking into our hotel. We'll enjoy lunch at a cozy local restaurant. 

    Meals: Breakfast and lunch

  • Day 2 - 1 Dec: Inle Lake Boat Tour

    This morning you'll wake up to the serene surroundings of the lake. Today we get to enjoy a full-day boat tour on its calm waters, which are dotted with floating gardens and fishing canoes. Experience the lake's unique 'leg rowers' - the Intha fishermen. Using a special technique, they row standing up with one leg wrapped around a single oar, leaving their hands free to work the conical fishing net. We'll make a stop at Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the holiest religious site in southern Shan State, and also visit a traditional silk-weaving workshop which uses wooden handlooms and a blacksmith's forge. 

    Along the way, we'll pass endless floating gardens, where Intha lake dwellers grow fruit and vegetables. Continuing by boat, we'll visit Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery, one of the oldest on the lake, where you can see exquisite Buddha statues which are more than 200 years old.

We'll then take a long-tailed boat across to Indein, at the western end of Inle, for one of the most scenic trips on the lake. The trip takes us through the busy village of Ywama, the largest on the lake, with its many channels and tall teak houses on stilts, after which we enter a long, often tree-lined canal, on both sides of which farmers cultivate their land against the backdrop of the Shan Hills. Disembark at the jetty and walk for 15 minutes through Indein village to reach the ancient pagoda ruins of Nyaung Ohak. A covered walkway populated with souvenir stallholders leads up to Shwe Inn Thein Paya, a complex of weather-beaten stupas, also known as zedis. 

    After lunch, we'll hop into comfortable canoes operated by Inle Canoe Lady and enjoy the ride.

Mount Victoria & Chin Villages

Less

This extension showcases the stunning beauty of the Chin State. We'll take quiet and relaxing walks in the small town of Kanpetlet and its surrounding tiny villages, where the older local women of the Dai, Upu, and Ya ethnic tribes sport intricated tattoos on their faces. We'll also visit the Nat Ma Taung National Park, rich in rare and beautiful flora and fauna, which have earned it accreditation by UNESCO as a place of Outstanding Universal Value. Round off your trip to Myanmar with a hike to the top of Mt. Victoria and soak in the magnificent surroundings with a summit picnic.

  • Day 1 - 30 Nov: Traveling to Mindat

    We will begin this program with a brief meet-and-greet at the hotel and then start our long drive in standard 4WD cars from Bagan to Mindat. The path can sometimes be rocky and bumpy and cattle can often be seen running through crop plantations and meadows. Lunch will be provided along the way. We will briefly stop at a Chin village to get an initial impression of this magnificent state.

    This day will be good for scenic photography and interacting with the local villagers, and will conclude with arrival to Mindat, 4860 feet above sea level. Dinner will be provided at the hotel.

    Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

  • Day 2 - 1 Dec: Mindat Market, Chin Villages, and Kanpetlet

    After breakfast at our hotel, we'll head toward another Chin Village. Here we'll get to meet the locals, including some of the Chin women who still dress in their traditional attires, smoke tobacco pipes, and, depending on their age, might even have their faces covered in intricate traditional tattoos. The face tattoos were a rite-of-passage practice that signified their arrival to womanhood, with symbols representing identifying messages of each tribe, and the practice is now outlawed by the government.

    We will have lunch at a local restaurant, followed by some free time to wander around the town center and local market in Mindat before heading towards Kanpetlet, where we will spend the night at a simple hotel.

    Meals: Breakfsat and lunch 

  • Day 3 - 2 Dec: The wonders of Mount Victoria

    After an early breakfast at the hotel, we will pass through the town of Kanpetlet to visit some of truly small villages, where we'll see simple churches and huts, occasionally decorated with buffalo skulls, and be able to sit and talk with some of the local people. 

    Afterwards, we’ll leave the villages and drive to the national park’s upper base camp to head for the summit of the wondrous Mount Victoria. The stunning nature and biodiversity of the area has earned it the title of an ASEAN Heritage Park, and in November we should be able to see rich red rhodedendron blooms. The footpath is a little steep, but the reward of the unbelievable view once we come out of the forest makes it worth every step. At the top, there is small area to sit where we will enjoy a picnic. 

    Once we've sufficiently enjoyed the view, we'll head back down to upper base camp and then drive back to our hotel.

    Meals: Breakfast and picnic lunch 

  • Day 4 - 3 Dec: Departure

    After breakfast at the hotel, we'll begin the drive to Bagan (150km), driving through the mountainous areas, amid mist and quiet valleys. Upon arrival in Bagan, guests will board a domestic flight and fly to Yangon where our tour ends. We do not recommend you to book an evening flight out of Yangon because domestic flights often get delayed so please allow for an adequate buffer.
