Myitkyina, Mt Kyaiktiyo, Mae Sot border crossing
29th March, 2010
Anybody got the latest on the following:
1) Is it possible to reach Myitkyina or at least Bhamo (both were off limits to tourists in January/February 2013)? Ideally we'd like to fly in from Mandalay and return to Mandalay by river, train and bus.
2) When does the Golden Rock get covered? We had to change our plans to visit it in February 2013 as we heard it was being covered. Is this a regular annual event? For the approaching rains? A festival?
We'll be back in Myanmar in February 2014 and looking to do both.
And thirdly anyone been through the land crossing at Mae Sot ? I gather it is now open.
Plan is to fly in to Mandalay, fly up to Myitkyina or Bhamo, return slowly to Mandalay via Katha, bus to Bago, Mt Kyaiktiyo, Hpa-an, Moulmein and back to Thailand via Mae Sot border crossing.
Any news welcome.
Thanks in advance.
