Enjoy an afternoon cruise to Mingun, and visit the world's largest pagoda, then return to watch the sunset over the Ayeryarwady River
Soak up the tranquillity of Inle Lake and sample the hospitality of the Shan people, one of many groups that contribute to the ethnic diversity of this colourful country. Stop in for a home cooked lunch at one of the villages near the lake and learn more about local life
If you would like to climb or enter the temples in and around Bagan, please be aware you will need to remove your footwear and socks. In addition, some of the temple steps are very steep, and without railings, so caution will need to be exercised.
This trip includes half a day walking around Indein village at Inle Lake. You will walk on uneven tracks to a Shan tribal village. Total walking time is around 5 hours, but this will depend on fitness and wishes of the group, and weather.
To save time on this trip there are 3 internal flights. Please note these are likely to be on smaller aircraft.
Travel drive from Mandalay to Bagan (approximately 5 hours) by private vehicle, to save time transiting at airports, and so you can relax and watch the scenery.
The heat and humidity between March and October can be very intense. Your local leader will adjust activities to suit the local conditions and the needs of the group, however be prepared for the heat and the rain during this time of year and pack accordingly.

Make sure people bring sturdy, closed walking shoes. Bring small toiletries, pens, pencils to give away to local children as directed by your guide. INTREPID SUGGESTION: Always provide included a generous breakfast each day. NZ trip did NOT provide this. P & J is not breakfast! Always spend at least 2 night sin each place, changing hotels nightly is too exhausting. Again, this was my gripe for NZ trip plus we could have flown places rather than drive so much. NZ trip was a rip-off & turned me off to Intrepid for awhile. Also, quit fudging on the trip lengths in your descriptions. An orientation at 6pm is not a "First Day.

Very good tour that allowed us to see Myamar before it gets too commercialised. Eating is very good and cheap. A one course meal with drinks was rarely more than £20 for two off us.
