Ancient Bagan & The Tattooed Tribes of Chin

Yangon - Bagan - Kanpetlet - Home Stay - Mindat

& Challenging
Chin State

Start your journey exploring with your guide, an 'off the map' view of Myanmar's largest city, Yangon. Lane-ways framed by decaying colonial building facades and side-street markets abuzz with local activity.


Following a short flight, spend the next days exploring the vast landscape of Bagan. An ancient royal capital whose foundations were first laid way-back in the 9th Century. The primeval plain is both inspiring and overwhelming with over 1,000 pagodas and temples dotting the vista as far as the eye can see.


Trek a remote area of one of Myanmar's last frontiers. Known as 'Chin Land' by locals, it's a culturally unique location and home to the Chin women with their tattooed faces. An area that's been visited by few outsiders. - What a finale to your Myanmar adventure!
