A continual stream of pilgrims from Myanmar and Asia come to witness the wonder at least once in their life time. Enjoy the tranquil sunset, soak in the unique atmosphere and share in wonder with fellow monk, nun, and lay pilgrims.
Get the royal treatment and summit 500 meters to the peak by way your own private bamboo chair carried by 4 porters. This is an extra option that is negotiated on site the day of your tour. The price is usually about $20 US.
Travelling in Myanmar is essentially an adventure experience. Road conditions vary, communications, electricity supply and standard of lodging and local services are often not up to western standards. Travel times and schedules are subject to changes without prior notice. The tour guide may need to amend the touring schedules and itinerary if needed before and while on tour. We seldom experience problems but its all part of the fun.
If you arrive from Bangkok, then Bangkok Airways is a good option with a 90 minute flight from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok's main international airport. Air Asia flies to Yangon from Bangkok as well from Don Meung Airport. The cost of these flights is between $110 to $130. There are also flights from both Phuket or Chiang Mai but you will probably be routed through Bangkok first which adds several hours to the travel time.
International connections to Yangon are available from Hong Kong with Tiger Air, Air Asia, Malaysia Airlines, China Eastern, Vietnam Airlines and several other choices. Yangon is also well serviced out of Japan, Korea and Tawian. Thai Airways, Air Ana, Korean Air and Singapore Airlines all service Yangon.
You will be met at your hotel in Yangon in the morning or at the airport in Yangon. We will need to know your flight arrival and departure details in advance. Your tour starts after airport pick up.
This tour includes one night stay at the Mountain Top Hotel in Kyaikhtiyo (deluxe room) considered a 3.5 star hotel
The single supplement fee is the additional amount that a single traveler pays over and above the price per person for groups of 2 or more. This being a private tour makes it very expensive for one person. Please ask us for a quote if you would like to travel solo.
If guests cancel after booking and after deposits are paid, refunds and cancellations are processed as follows:
We strongly suggest that you buy your own personal trip cancellation insurance for your own protection. You should also buy insurance coverage appropriate for medical, travel coverage and personal liability which should include travel repatriation. The tour operator or tour agent cannot be held responsible for personal loss or injury where customers choose not to secure such insurance coverage.
For weather related reasons, the best time to visit Myanmar is from October to mid March. Peak season is November 1 to March 31. But if you book a trip for mid to late October, this time can be least busy. Hotel capacity can become scarce during peak season. We may need to look at alternative hotel options. Local services such as transportation, meals and accommodation are in local currency (Kyats) and in case of sudden fluctuations in exchange rate, its possible that minor price adjustments could factor in.
Many of the hotels now require up to 50% deposit to guarantee bookings. In the busiest peak season, dealing with some of the local hotels, airlines and transportation suppliers in Myanmar can be challenging. For these reasons, booking in advance and your prompt payment is required in order to book and hold reservations in particular for peak season. Participation in Myanmar tours implies your understanding to these conditions. Thank you!!!
