Birding Activity in Hpa-an
November 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm – December 2, 2019 @ 6:00 am RMT
Let’s join birding activity in Hpa-an
Birding activity in Hpa-An, the capital of Kayin State on 30th November 2019.
Monthly birding activities have been launching through Myanmar every last weekend day of the month. SST Tourism Company and Myanmar Bird and Nature Society(MBNS) cooperated to implement this monthly birding activity in Myanmar to share the environmental awareness to the local community.
In this November activity, we choose Hpa-an, the capital of Kayin State which is very rich in cultural heritage. The reason why we choose Hpa-an is because of significant bird species Limestone Wren-Babbler. And, we would like to highlight Hpa-an Limestone Wren-Babbler which might be subspecies or endemic to Myanmar in the future due to its distinct characteristic. Moreover, the local community can value this unique natural heritage by receiving this knowledge. Beside, Hpa-an can attract international tourists and local tourists not only by the culture tour products but also by the ecotourism tour products.
We will leave from Yangon on 29th November 2019 by Night Express. Then, we intend to do the whole day birding in Hpa-an when we reach the next morning. And, we will be overnight in Hpa-an. The next day we will also visit around other possible habitats by the leading of local people who are very enthusiastic about bird watching. This evening, we will come back to Yangon by Night Express.
