Boutique tour operator, Crooked Compass is calling avid travellers to join the newRoad to Mandalay exploratory tour encompassing India, Bangladesh and Myanmar, across the recently opened border between East India and Myanmar.
Crooked Compass is the first company in the southern hemisphere to secure permits for this newly opened border. Travellers will be in the first few hundred foreigners in the world to ever cross this post by land.
A 25 or 30 day itinerary is available for travel in March and October, 2017, accommodating 12 people per tour. Private departures can be arranged on request.
“This is one of our most exciting and memorable journeys, perfect for those who seek that sense of discovery and serendipity which occurs on first time forays into new places. This is the essence of our company motto #FollowADifferentPath,” says Founding Director, Lisa Pagotto.
Many of the regions visited on the tour have not been accessible to foreign travellers, allowing a truly authentic experience with little known minority tribes, breathtaking wildlife encounters, spectacular virgin landscapes and raw cultural immersion.
Crooked Compass works in conjunction with local indigenous communities and supports new ecotourism initiatives to invite travellers into wild lands and remote villages. Travellers become part of the exploration, helping to make decisions as they go and sharing insights with guides and local people about their experience.
