This holiday itinerary is a wonderfully unique adventure ideal for second-time visitors to Myanmar or first-time visitors who like to travel off-the-beaten-track. You’ll venture north into the Shan and Kachin States, exploring the green foothills of the Himalayas, the source of The Irrawaddy River, and some beautiful farming villages and towns surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and dotted with pagodas.
