Myanmar, Mount Victoria
Info : Trekking and Birdwatching
Just a few hours west of beautiful Bagan in Myanmar’s remote Chin State lies Nat Ma Taung National Park and its grandest peak, Mt. Victoria. A guided overnight tour will show you the very best of Mt. Victoria’s lush green jungle, rich with flora and fauna species. Beginning with an adventurous jeep ride, you’ll arrive at your “base camp” in Mindat or Kanpetlet. From here, the trek to the peak is short and eye-opening. For bird enthusiasts, Mt. Victoria is an absolute highlight, and your guide will point out several of the many rare and endemic bird and butterfly species as you trek through the forest. Camp at the top of Mt. Victoria or return to one of the villages for more comfortable accommodation.
[Our cruise] was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Terry our guide made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend [it] more highly, perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life.
