Myanmar (Burma) 2014

In January we visited Myanmar in southeast Asia. We started with a hike up to Phongun Razi in the mountains of the far north along the border with India. We went from jungle to snow in a couple of days. We followed with visits to the pagodas of Mandalay and Bagan. From there we spent a few days on Inle Lake and then back to Yangon (Rangoon). We have more details in our blog entries:

"Ice Land in Myanmar?",
"From Jungle to Snow, an Ascent of Phongun Razi",
"The Marvels of Mandalay",
"Plains of Pagodas",
"Leg Rowing on Inle Lake"
and "Electric Buddhas".
