I regard my trek with my sons (in Nepal) led by Satish as one of the highlights of my life. ...Satish's care was just extraordinary....I could not recommend World Expeditions and Satish too highly.

Myanmar Explorer

For an in-depth adventure in Myanmar this trip is a must! From Yangon journey to Lashio, get off the beaten track and see the real culture and traditions of Myanmar with a two-day trek to the historic Shan town of Hsipaw. Passing through many traditional hilltribe villages we learn about local life and have the unique opportunity to stay overnight in homestay accommodation. Take a scenic rail journey across the iconic Goteik Viaduct. On to Bagan to discover by bike its many temples and monasteries and explore the magnificent ancient pagodas with their intricate carvings, murals and astonishing architecture. At Inle Lake visit the bustling local markets and stilted villages. Discover the magnificent Golden Rock, one of Myanmar's most sacred pilgrimage sites. You will climb along a small path, enjoying views across the surrounding area before witnessing this huge rock covered with gold leaf. Our trip culminates exploring Mawlamyine, one of the Orient's most picturesque ports.
