Late afternoon boat tour on the Irrawaddy River, finishing as the sun sets on riverside villages and temples.

Stay overnight in Bagan. (B,L)

 

DAY (4) Bagan to Mandalay by road. Visit Sagaing & Amarapura

Today leave Bagan and drive (approx 4 hrs) to Mandalay,the last royal city of Myanmar Kingdom. On arrival in Mandalay, we will visit the holy Sagaing Hill, the hub of Buddhism in Myanmar. Take time to visit Swan Oo Pon Nya Shin and U Min Thone Sae Pagodas as well as clay pot making and nunnery to learn the daily life of Buddhist nuns.

DAY (6) Mandalay to Heho by flight and visit Pindaya Cave

Transfer to the airport and short flight to Heho. Upon arrival at Heho, proceed by road to Pindaya. The road to Pindaya cuts across one of the most densely farmed areas in Myanmar – at first glance, the patchwork of fields and hedges could almost be a landscape from central Europe or middle America. Visit Pindaya Limestone cave, unique for the about nine thousand Buddha images placed there by pilgrims over many centuries.

After lunch, continue your exploration to the western banks of the lake and travel down a small canal to Indein – a Pa-Oh village which is known for its stupa-covered hill with 1,054 stupas constructed between the 17th and the 18th centuries. Spend time exploring Indein on foot, strolling around the village, visiting a local school and making your way to the top of the hill where you can wander amid the weather-beaten stupas and enjoy magnificent views of the lake below.
