Overview

As we rise to altitudes and drift with the breeze, you will witness quite possibly the best panoramic views of Bagan and its surrounds. One of the most important archaeological sites in Asia and arguably the world, the thousands of temples at Bagan sit on a dry agricultural plain wedged in a bend of the imperious Irrawaddy River. Here is your opportunity to get some of the most stunning photographs you will ever take.
