Imagine immersing yourself in a mysterious, spectacular landscape of a thousand ancient temples — still mostly undiscovered by mass tourism, or encountering diverse cultural traditions that are unmarred by modern influences, or experiencing the mystical, rhythmic sway of saffron-robed monks crossing a 1.2 km teak footbridge at sunset, or drifting through floating markets with villages of stilt-houses and floating gardens, or plunging into the jungle to off-the-beaten-path locations where tribal life and its customs remain the same as their ancestors’ before them. Imagine joining this extraordinary journey that you will never forget, that will change your life and the way you see. Then imagine joining us as we explore the breath-taking beauty of a land, steeped in ancient traditions, with graceful, gentle people, diverse customs and a safe environment. Imagine joining us as we discover the Magic of Myanmar!

In the pre-dawn dusk, the pilgrims arrive. After crossing the narrow bridge that spans the Salinadi River, they enter the inner sanctum at the temple complex. Although the moon is full, the mist from the river hides its cool brilliance. About 200 women devotees gather around fires in the inner sanctum, absorbing its warmth before taking their first holy bath in the cold Himalayan stream.

Imagine hiking along an ancient trade route then entering the winding cobbled lanes of a once thriving trade center; or witnessing blood sacrifices at a hilltop temple; or wandering through a Mithila village with mud walls decorated with wildly colorful paintings of people and animals; or staying at a Gurung village rodi overlooking the stunning Annapurna range; or meandering through the narrow back streets of a living museum, encountering the frenetic rhythms of the Navadurga dancers as they dance, possessed by spirits. This is the magic of Nepal.
