Watch out for Wild Burma: Nature’s Lost Kingdom
Watch out for Wild Burma: Nature's Lost Kingdom, airing on the BBC this Friday (29th November).
This fascinating new documentary from the BBC showcases Burma's amazing array of wildlife – with the aim of highlighting how important it is to protect Burma's forests. In the first episode, the team of wildlife experts and film crew, aided by local Chin trackers, search for the Asian elephant.
Filming the elephants proved to be a difficult task given the dense bamboo jungle, so much of the filming was undertaken from platforms, high up in the canopy. If you can't wait for the episode, due to air at 21.00 Friday, then there are video clips, photos and stories written by the film crew and presenters on the BBC website. On our Chin Hills & Kalaw Trek we are unlikely to see any elephants. However this splendid trek takes us through remote Chin tribal villages, and jungle ringing with birdsong, to reach the summit of Mount Victoria. Following this short trek, we then embark on another trek in the Kalaw area before reaching Inle Lake for a little R&R.
BBC1’s beautifully shot new three part series, Sacred Wonders, takes us to some of the world’s most famous landmarks that have been built in the name of religion. Whatever your religious beliefs, it's fair to say these man-made wonders are nothing short of magical.
Here are a few sacred wonders we'd be delighted to take you to.
