The annual travel photo-tour to Myanmar is only for a small group of photographers. It´s a true experience for the senses and the mind and everyone leaves with more photos than they anticipated. Keys to their memories from a once in a life time tour.
In 2020 we are offering an EXTENSION TOUR, dates Dec 13-16 2020, for those interested in visiting more tribes, traveling through forested trails in the National Park and capturing many unseen places and less known tribes. Different culture but also nearly forgotten way of living. This is a country that has been frozen in time for centuries, but soon will catch up with the fast evolving world. These next few months and years are going to change Myanmar for ever – I suspect the chance to catch the authentic Myanmar might be now and soon forever lost.
The extension tour is 4 days optional extension to the original tour and only available for the participants. With 2 Professional Photographers with expert Guiding Knowledge and one of them local with an access to vantage photo points like the tribes that we´ll be visiting in the extended tour. Both with great understanding of lighting and best shooting locations. You are in very good and safe hands in the Myanmar Travel-Photo tours.
Highlights: Travel to Chin hills, Kanpetlet Town and the Tattooed Faced Women
This is an extension to the original tour only.
After breakfast in Bagan we say goodbye to part of the group we´ve been travelling with for the last 12 days.
We´ll travel for 5 hours to reach the southern Chin Hills, with occasional photo stops along the way while driving through many unseen places. In the afternoon we´ll reach the Kanpetlet town and there we will be shooting & visiting a number of villages where tattooed faced women with various patterns live.
We check in to a hotel in Kanpetlet for a nights rest.
Highlights: Kanpetlet Town and tribes in the National Park
Kanpetlet – after breakfast, shoot at the remaining tribe villages before we checkout and drive on the forested trails through the National Park. We will be shooting and visiting more villages on the way to Mindat town for overnight stop
Highlights: Travel to Yangon and then heading home
Bagan – after breakfast, we will be transferred to the domestic airport from where we´ll fly to Yangon by domestic flight. We spend the last afternoon in Yangon before going back to the international airport. Depending on flight schedules of each participant we travel to the airport, with a full treasure chest of magnificent photographs to bear witness to our journey to another world.
