One of the fortunate outcomes of Burmah's relative isolation is that it is
the one country within Southeast Asia to have retained the greatest degree of
indigenous traditions. An intoxicating culture and warm people welcome travellers.
We can say with all candour that travelling in Burmah will be one of the most
delightful experiences you will ever encounter.
Our expedition will convene initially in the capital, Rangoon, but will depart
almost immediately for roads less travelled. In keeping with our philosophy
at End-of-the-Tether Expeditions, we are not able to be more specific about
the places we will be exploring, although they will certainly include the world-renowned
sites of Pagan and Inle Lake. Prior to arrival in Rangoon we shall be sending
all selected participants a briefing package containing updated information
on the country, recommended inoculations, useful Burmese phrases, what to pack,
etc. We shall also circulate the profiles of all participants as well as their
chosen research topics. We shall be conducting individual interviews in selected
locations to ensure the highest standards of selection of our expedition participants
as well as to promote the invaluable personal contact that is paramount in all
