Myanmar – known formerly as Burma – is a country infused with history and vibrant, diverse cultural heritage, but many may not realize the depth of wildlife to be found in this land of mystical beauty. International Expeditions new Myanmar tour highlights the country’s rich birdlife, including hooded treepie, Burmese bush lark, Jerdon’s minivet, Burmese yuhina, Jerdon’s bush chat and dark-backed sibia.
International Expeditions has hand-selected a world-class naturalist Expedition Leader, Charlie Babault, who will be with your small-group every step of the way. Joining Charlie is local guide and Myanmar native Ye Yint Kyaw, along with birding guides who know the birdlife of Myanmar by both its English names and by their calls.
Of course, IE’s Myanmar adventure will also survey the golden temples, ancient pagodas and artistic heritage that have long intrigued travelers to this country that is only just beginning to “open up” to outsiders. Guests on our 16-day Myanmar tour will enjoy a walking tour to discover the fading colonial architecture of Yangon, spend three nights soaking in the tranquility of Inle Lake, and discover the iconic temples of Bagan and Mandalay.
