Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 2

On arrival you will be met at Mandalay International Airport. You then start your tour by visiting picturesque Sagaing, perhaps the living centre of Buddhist faith in Myanmar today. The hills here are dotted with numerous pagodas and monasteries. Take a sunset stroll on U Bein Bridge, which at over a kilometre is believed to be the longest teak bridge in the world. The following day you go for a touring ride in a classic Mandalay ‘sidecar’ (a chauffeur-pedalled bicycle with a passenger seat). You then head off on a comprehensive tour of Mandalay, a highlight of which is the Mahamuni Pagoda, home to a spectacular Buddha image covered with thick layers of gold leaves. Visit Kuthodaw Pagoda, where the Theravada Buddhist scriptures are inscribed on 729 marble slabs, giving rise to its nickname 'the world’s largest book'. Next visit beautiful teak-carved Shwenandaw Monastery, the only Royal Palace building to survive World War II bombing.

DAY 3 - 4

This morning you will fly to Bagan from where you tour the city with visits to a diverse selection of the most important pagodas and temples in Bagan. These include the Shwezigon Pagoda, and Gubyaukgyi (Wetkyi-Inn). Continue to the eminent Ananda Temple; one of the finest and largest pagodas. The next day you will begin your cycle ride on a sandy track near Ananda Temple (½ Km). Your first stop is at Dhammayangyi (¼ Km), a massive temple dating from 1170 which is visible for kilometres around. Stop at Phwa Saw, a quintessentially Myanmar village of rattan houses, busy with bullock carts, zebu cattle and local craft industries. Arrive at Sulamani (2 Km) one of Bagan’s most attractively constructed temples famous for its ornamental work and interior frescoes. Sightseeing continues with visits to Manuha Temple, built in Mon style in 1059; Nanpaya Temple, a unique sandstone monument that is said to have been the palace of King Manuha; and Gubyaukgyi (Myingaba) under the protection of UNESCO because of its ancient mural paintings.

DAY 5 - 6

This morning you will fly to Heho and then drive to Kalaw through the hills to Magwe and the Green Hill Valley Elephant camp. Here you will watch the elephants feeding and bathing and learn all about their conservation efforts. Walk back to the camp lodge and enjoy a delicious lunch, with a view of the valley and the opportunity to see butterflies, birds and orchids. The following day you will enjoy a half day hike to Myinmahti, an ethnic Danu village, through the pine forest, which opens out after to 1 hour to potato farms, mountain rice paddies and huge vegetable plantations. Continue to the Myinmahti limestone cave (312 metres deep from entrance to exit).
