Info : Myanmar Highlights with 3 day Trek

This holiday includes most of Myanmar's main sites, with a few unique twists. Beyond the glittering temples, welcoming culture and superb scenery of Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay, this holiday takes you off-the-beaten-track. Departing from Kalaw you'll traverse the remote hills, stopping to explore local villages before continuing onwards by foot to one of the country's must-sees, Lake Inle.

Highlights include

  • Discovering the city of Yangon on a unique ETG Signature Tour. Golden stupas, colonial relics and bustling local markets.
  • Watching the sun rise at U Bein Bridge before the crowds arrive - a picture postcard image.
  • Exploring the sleepy colonial hill station of Kalaw by bike and visiting the Green Hill Elephant Camp.
  • A rewarding 3 day trek through the hills from Kalaw towards Lake Inle.
