Myanmar offers plenty of unspoiled nature and wildlife.

There are possibilities for eco-tourism:

  • Bird-watching (Moeywungyi (Moyingyi) Wetland Wildlife Sanctuary near Bago / Pegu, there are also possibilities near Kalaw and the Inle Lake)

  • Elephant camps ( Poe Kyar, Myaing Hay Wun, Lae Hte)

  • Botanical garden (National Botanical Gardens, Pyin Oo Lwin – Maymyo)

  • National parks (Nat Ma Taung (Mt. Victoria) National Park, Popa Mountain Park)

  • Wildlife Sanctuary (Shwesettaw Wildlife Sanctuary, Indawgyi Lake Wildlife Sanctuary, Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park)

  • Crocodile Sanctuary – Main Ma Hla Island in the delta region.

    Some of those places are quite far away from the main tourist spots. Therefore extensive travel and minimal comfort must be put into account. Several of those places are in malaria infested areas, please ensure prophylaxis if you want to visit those places.
