Pandaw Cruise - Pagan & The Upper Irrawaddy 11 days

Myanmar - Mandalay - Kyaukmyaung - Katha

Overview

Pandaw will sail weekly between Mandalay and Bhamo, the most northerly navigable point on the Irrawaddy, 1000 miles from Rangoon and close to the China border. Highlights will be passage through the 3rd and 2nd defiles, not to mention visits to enchanting local towns, most favorite being Katha, once home to George Orwell and the setting for Burmese days. Bhamo is now a big trading town with a strong Chinese influence. We will then continue in the Kindat, if water conditions permit, or by local boat to enter the awesome 1st defile with its cataracts and towering gorges.
