Walking and Trekking Holidays
Located 1,570 km (975 mi) north/northwest of Yangon (Rangoon) near Mingin Township in the Sagaing Division, the 1,605 km2 (620 sq. mi) Alaungdaw Kathapa is best known for the large herds of Asian elephants that roam there. Approximately 200 of the beasts call the park home, usually traveling in herds of up to a dozen individuals. Other breathtaking wildlife include the elusive clouded leopard (as well as several other jungle cats such as civets), the endangered Burmese brow-antlered deer (also known as Thamin), barking deer, several species of bears (including the Himalayan brown bear and sun bear) and giant monitor lizards.
