Chindwin River Cruise: In Pictures
The Chindwin River is the largest tributary of the Irrawaddy River and originates in the Kachin State of Myanmar and runs south before meeting the Irrawaddy River.
Due to low water levels, the Chindwin River is only accessible during the monsoon season around late July and August and therefore is a much less explored area the Irrawaddy. Due to the lower number of boats and visitors, the areas around the Chindwin river are peaceful and unspoilt. Most of the river runs through beautiful scenic landscapes flowing through mountain ranges and dense forests. For more about the area please read our blog Why Travel the Chindwin River?
We recently sent our intrepid photographer off to tour Myanmar to capture the magic of the Chindwin River and here are the stunning pictures that he brought back, travelling on the Mandalay to Bagan cruise.
