Cruising the Chindwin River

An expedition cruise along the Chindwin River is a journey into the most remote and outlandish regions of Myanmar,
culminating in the arrival at the exotic Nagaland.


Cruise Highlights

See out-of-the-way Myanmar in a very handcrafted and extraordinary river journey

The unspoiled and untamed Chindwin River beholds a myriad of hidden treasures. Our expedition cruise savours an off-the-beaten-path river journey aboard the ultra-luxe Anawrahta.

Departing from Mandalay, the cruise enters the Chindwin and meanders its way upstream along stunning natural backdrops, ancient pagodas and local life brimming with bottomless charm. The journey culminates in Homalin, where the fascinating Naga tribe, vested in traditional tribal clothing, welcomes our guests with an exclusive ceremony unseen in other parts of the country.

Please note this itinerary is not available until August 2023. Please see our Departure Schedule.
