Walking holiday to the Golden Land of Myanmar

24th July 2013 Print

Step back in time and experience cultures and traditions little changed by the modern world on a new for 2014 guided walking holiday of the Golden Land of Myanmar – formerly the British colony of Burma – courtesy of HF Holidays, the UK walking holiday organisation which is celebrating its centenary in 2013.

The itinerary combines guided walks – ranging from two to eight miles – amid stunning landscapes with a wealth of sightseeing opportunities and guests benefit from the expertise of specialist local leaders as well as an HF Holidays’ leader.

Highlights include following trails through pine clad hills and hill tribe villages in the highlands of Kalaw and discovering the outstanding beauty of the ancient temples of Bagan – the ‘city of four million pagodas’ – together with village walks and a climb to the top of Mount Popa. 

There are also scenic strolls around the shores of Inle Lake with opportunities for watching the leg-rowing local fishermen and the floating gardens; a walking tour of the colonial buildings of Yangon and a sunset visit to the golden Shwedagon pagoda as well as a cruise along the Irrawaddy for walks at Mingun and the monasteries of the Sagaing hills.

Available on selected dates in 2014, the cost is from £2659 per person, land-only or from £3459 inclusive of return Heathrow flights and transfers.  These twin-share prices also include 12 nights’ full board en-suite accommodation, the full holiday programme, plus internal flights, entrance fees, tips and travel by air conditioned minibus or coach.
