Full description
Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city on this 4-hour private tour featuring a relaxing boat ride upriver from Mandalay. Journey through the habitat of endangered Irrawaddy Dolphins, and visit the ancient site of Mingun. You'll find a massive, unfinished temple dating back to the 18th century, and see the Mingun Bell, which is displayed in a nearby pavilion and is believed to be the largest un-cracked hanging bell in the world.

Your private tour will begin with pick-up from your hotel in Mandalay by your personal guide and driver. You will then be driven to the boat jetty where you will embark on a 1-hour boat ride on the Irrawaddy River. You will journey upriver to Ancient Mingun, an archaeological site that is elevated on the western bank of the Irrawaddy River. Upon your arrival, you will start with a visit to the Mingun Bell, an impressive 90-ton (81,000-kilogram) bronze bell that was commissioned by King Bodawpaya in 1808.

After admiring the world's largest intact bell, you will continue to the Hsinbyume Paya to see the striking sight of the Mingun Paya, a huge, unfinished stupa (religious structure). Had it been completed, it would have been the world's largest temple. After your guided visit, you will continue the scenic river cruise downstream along the Irrawaddy River back to Mandalay, passing picturesque villages along the way. Your half-day tour ends with drop off back to your hotel in Mandalay.
