Solo Travel Destination Myanmar-Burma: See this ancient country newly reopened for tourism. Although both names are used, I was told the difference by one expert: Burma is a region of the country of Myanmar. This is similar to the names for Holland and the Netherlands. However, both are often used together and understood as one destination.
Tour operator: Mountain Travel Sobek. They are based in California and have decades of expertise in global active travel from hikes to whitewater rafting and cultural tours as well.
You will have the opportunity to see the hidden side of newly-reopened Myanmar/Burma. You will become acquainted with both ancient days and modern times. You will travel from the untouched Keng Tung region to remote and exotic hill tribes. Real highpoints of the tour include the remarkable 800-year-old Bagan temples and Yangon’s sacred Schwedagon Pagoda.
