Little Bagan in Hsipaw Myanmar (video)

WATCH: 14 Hsipaw Little Bagan Myanmar (Burma) 

Wandering around Hsipaw and out to Little Bagan, we saw rice fields, water buffalo and smiling friendly faces. I enjoyed the dirt track and seeing the stupas. Many children said, “Mingla-ba” or Hello to us. Being in the monastery where the young monks were chanting and studying was a highlight of the day. It was a very tranquil wander in a beautiful area. The only negative is we were told there was no overnight trekking in the area as the Army was engaged in battle with some Shan tribes. We had thought that this area had peaceful relations now and were surprised to learn of the fighting. October 4, 2012
