Upper Myanmar


The town of Putao is surrounded by the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas, many creeks and rivers, and densely forested terrain. The highlights of this trip include walking across a suspension bridge (which is a rare experience in this modern age), beautiful and rare orchids, crystal clear water, and an unforgettable meeting with local hill tribes. Then, we can’t forget about the boat trip or rafting along the Malikha River, and visit to the natural abstract stonework on Sacred Sprit Island.Due to the need for travel authorization, only package tours are allowed in this area. Persons travelling to Putao should be in good physical condition, as it requires a minimum of 45 minutes to 6 hours daily, (depending on the route and itinerary) to walk though the flat terrain and over a 4000-foot high mountain. 

In this region we are working with a local team trained in Yangon. Our guides and porters know the mountain by heart, and some have been to the highest peak many times and speak the local dialect. You can benefit from our expertise in this area and the personal care we provide. We can propose different itineraries from a minimum 4 days to 2 weeks, to fit your requirements. 


Is a small town where you can take a boat (ferry) down the Irrawaddy River to Mandalay for a couple of days, depending on the water level (at some dry times of year, this boat trip is not possible). Along the river you will see many local villages, river commerce, and rural life. No particular places to visit, you can just enjoy the scenery!


This is a small village where you can stop and visit an elephant camp. From Katha you can take a boat down the Irrawaddy River to Mandalay, or the journey can by taken by train. Both are nice experience and worth trying.


For years now, we have been involved in community projects, starting with the construction of a public library available to all children of Bagan, Our activities have grown over the years and we will continue to offer our time and resources to help those most in need in our country.
