Burma (Myanmar) - Trip code BUIB

Burma in Depth + Ngapali Beach extension

This adventurous trip around Burma (Myanmar) takes us to fascinating sights beyond the classic highlights. We travel deep into the Mon State to Ogre Island and join local pilgrims as they admire the sunset from the sacred Golden Rock at Mount Kyaikhtiyo. We marvel at the grandeur of Bagan, discover authentic rural life in and around Hsipaw and witness the fascinating world of Inle Lake. We also cross the dramatic Gokteik Viaduct by train and explore the cities of Mandalay and Rangoon. Sadly, recent events surrounding the Rohingya minority have seen Burma thrust into the international spotlight again. The areas of unrest are concentrated within the north of Rakhine state, far away from any location our itineraries visit. We actively monitor the situation on the ground and closely follow the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). We also remain acutely aware of our ethical responsibility; and in order to ensure that the local communities benefit the most from our trips, we use a privately-owned Burmese local ground agent for all of our local services. Our itineraries have been carefully planned to limit the use of services owned by, or affiliated with, the government. This ensures that the Burmese people benefit as much as possible from our tours. We strongly believe that we contribute positively to the local economy, whilst providing our customers with the privilege of direct and genuine interaction with the local people, as well as an insight into the country's unique culture and heritage.

Trip highlights

  • Rangoon (Yangon) - British colonial heritage and the golden Shwedagon Pagoda
  • Inle Lake - Floating gardens, stilted villages and leg-rowing fishermen
  • Mandalay - Cruise on Irrawaddy River and visit nearby U-Bein Bridge
  • Hsipaw - Relaxed rural village life and beautiful countryside
  • Bagan - Vast plain studded with thousands of ancient temples

Day 2 - Sightseeing in Rangoon

Today we take a walking tour of Rangoon. Starting with a stroll along the banks of Kandawgyi Lake in the centre of the city we continue on to Botataung Pagoda. This pagoda is unique in that it is hollow - as we walk through we can see many ancient relics and artefacts displayed in glass cases. Later on we walk along Pansodan Street though downtown Rangoon, taking in the rich colonial architecture and bustling street markets. In the afternoon we make our way to the Chaukhtatgyi Paya, home to a giant 70 metre long reclining Buddha. The highlight of the day, though, is a visit to the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda, the most revered Buddhist temple in Burma, whose golden stupa dominates the city skyline making it the ideal spot from which to watch the sunset. A new layer of gold leaf will be applied to the main pagoda between September 2014 and February 2015. This tradition takes place once every five years, and during this time the main pagoda will be covered in bamboo scaffolding and enshrouded in canvas with parts of it possibly visible depending on the timing of your visit. While views of the main pagoda will be limited, the Shwedagon complex is large with a number of smaller pagodas, shrines and places of worship which locals will still visit and contribute to the special ambience of this holiest of Buddhist shrines.

We visit the pagoda, as well as the Shwethalyaung Reclining Buddha (the second largest in the world) and the Kyaik Pun Pagoda. In the afternoon we continue our drive to the foot of Mount Kyaikhtiyo, or Kin Pun 'base camp'. Upon arrival we continue in an open truck up a steep 11 kilometre track to Yathetaung. From here we walk for approximately 45 minutes to the mystical and highly revered Mount Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda in time for sunset.

A half-day tour of some of its most distinctive pagodas include visits to the Shwezigon Pagoda, the 13th century frescoes and cave temple of Wetkyi-in-Gubyaukgyi and the Ananda Pagoda, one of the best preserved monuments in the entire city.

This morning we take a short cruise to Mingun village and the ruins of the unfinished Mingun Pahtodawgyi (pagoda) which, had it been completed, would have been the world's largest pagoda. Begun by King Bodawpaya in 1790, the pagoda work on the monument ceased with the king's death in 1890. Nearby we also visit the giant 90 tonnes bronze Mingun Bell - considered to be the largest uncracked bell on the planet. Returning to Mandalay we then spend this afternoon exploring some of the city's major highlights, including the world's largest book at the Kuthodaw Pagoda and the intricate wooden majesty of the Shwenanda (Golden Palace) Monastery. We also plan to include visits to craft shops where you can observe traditional and skilled gold-leaf making, tapestry making and wood carving as well as the fascinating jade market.

The masonary work and carvings depicting mythical creatures are similar to those found in Bagan. We continue driving north to the former British Hillstation of Pyin Oo Lwin in the Shan Hills. Formerly known as Maymyo, after Colonel May of the 5th Bengal Infantry, it was the perfect retreat to escape the heat of Mandalay.

Nearby we have the opportunity to visit a local family to see how they make paper umbrellas from the bark of a mulberry tree. In the afternoon we continue on to Kalaw.

We might see tribal villagers working on their farms, or en route to the market with their produce. At the end of our walk we make a stop at Myinmathi Cave to see its many Buddha images and small stupas. After a lunch stop, we have a short transfer back to the hotel where we can relax for the rest of the day.

This morning sees an opportunity to explore this engaging hill town, whose attractions include the gold lacquered bamboo Buddha of Nee Paya and the Catholic church of Christ the King.

Surrounded by hills and populated predominantly by the Intha people, Lake Inle is one of the highest lakes in the country. Devout Buddhists, the local population of self-sufficient farmers and fishermen live in simple stilted houses of wood and bamboo, growing their food on floating gardens of grass and seaweed. We plan to make a tour of some of the local villages by boat and pay a visit to the famous monastery of Nga Phae.

The areas of unrest are concentrated within the north of Rakhine state, far away from any location our itineraries visit. We actively monitor the situation on the ground and closely follow the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Why book this trip

This three week adventure is perfect for travellers with more time to spare and who want to really get under the skin of the destination. The tour features all the main sights of our Burma Highlights (BUH) holiday, but also takes you deeper into less visited areas such as Mawlamyine in the south east and Hsipaw in the north. You will have the chance to take a journey by local train over a viaduct and walk up to the iconic Golden Rock as well as discover Burma's classic sights.

The Shan highlands, Inle Lake and Kalaw are cooler and in the winter season and temperatures may reach near zero at night, with the mornings often remaining cold. Please dress respectfully when visiting temples and religious sites, covering your torso, shoulders and legs to below the knee and easily removable footwear for convenience as you can only enter sacred sites barefoot.

Luggage: On tour

One main piece of baggage, a daypack and an overnight bag for your visit to Golden Rock. Remember you are expected to carry your own luggage so don't overload yourself.

ATMs are becoming more widely available and some hotels may have them, including the Panda Hotel in Yangon. You are more likely to find them in the larger cities, but they are now starting to appear in some of the smaller towns and villages.
