Privat guided tur fra Mandalay til Bagan med skjulte templer og skildpadder

full day excursion to explore more of the country side including a visit to the Burmese
star tortoise in the wildlife sanctuary and a fantastic boat ride over the Ayeyarwaddy River.
With a private car and driver, we take you to a hidden cave temple - Ta Moke Shin Pin
Shwe Gu Gyi Pagoda the excellent creatures of its exterior with plants, animals and
characteristic of myths. From here, we continue drive to visit Burmese star tortoise at the
Minzontaung Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Burmese star tortoise is an endangered species originally from the dry zone in
Myanmar and in urgent need of protection. The Minzontaung Wildlife Sanctuary has been
doing an excellent job in breeding tortoises and setting them back out in the wild and we
take you to this simple but unique project to walk with their rangers through the forest (all
together about 1–1.5 hr) with a tracking device to locate some of the tortoise in the wild
and continue for a glimpse inside the breeding centre to see more of the tortoise. The
simple visitor centre (set up by Khiri Reach) gives you more information about this
endangered and oh so cute little animal. The walk is not compulsory and also without a
visit to the rangers station you will learn a lot about the tortoise and see them at the
breeding centre. Your visit to the centre will support the project.
After the visit to the tortoise centre we continue for lunch at a nearby restaurant before
heading to Pakkoku.
A 2 hours leisurely drive to Pakkoku where a private boat is ready for you at the jetty in
Pakkoku for a leisurely boat trip downriver to Bagan. If time permits we stop to visit Kyauk
Gu Ohnmin cave temple that rarely sees foreign visitors.
