IMG guide Jenni Fogle and the team flew back to Yangon yesterday and are getting ready to leave. Some members will head over to Cambodia and Vietnam to continue their adventures, while others head home to go back to work! What remains are some great memories of the Myanmar trek and a strong desire to see more of this country. Running trips in faraway places like Myanmar takes a lot more than just slapping an itinerary up on a website. We sent Jenni over to Myanmar last winter to scope out the area and build relationships with our local service providers. With this most recent trek under our belts to the central part of the country, and Chin and Shan states, we’ve learned a ton more in the process.
Once Jenni gets home we will compare notes and start looking at 2014. Our intention is to head back over and continue to develop the Myanmar program, hopefully heading even farther north this next year. If you are an experienced traveler looking for something off the beaten path (and willing to accept the uncertainty that comes with real adventure travel) please get in touch and we’ll keep you posted on what we decide for 2014. Thanks for following along with the adventure!
