Gokteik Viaduct Full-Day Private Tour from Mandalay

Where: MANDALAY

‘Made famous for many by the writings of Rudyard Kipling (who actually only spent 2 days in Myanmar and never even visited Mandalay!) this is perhaps the most evocative destination in Myanmar. The second largest city in Myanmar after Yangon this is the economic and religious hub of upper Myanmar and is centred around the Royal Palace. With hidden charms and much to explore including temples, monasteries and markets, as well as great street food and panoramic views from Mandalay Hill this is a city well worth spending time in.’

    Pass By: Gokteik Viaduct, Nawnghkio Myanmar

    It’s an early start this morning as you will be met in your hotel at 06:00 am, and transported to the Pyin Oo Lwin Train Station where you will board one of the world’s greatest train rides with your guide.This tour is a great way to transfer from Pyin Oo Lwin to Hsipaw, or for a day sightseeing from Pyin Oo Lwin. The train line from Pyin Oo Lwin to Hsipaw passes through the hills of Shan state, over cascading rivers, and along the famous Gokteik Viaduct. The rail line was constructed as a way for the British Empire to expand their influence in the region and the construction project was overseen by Sir Arthur Rendel an engineer for the Burma Railroad Company. The bridge was constructed in 1899 and completed in 1900 by Pennsylvania and Maryland Bridge Construction, at the time it considered a world masterpiece. It was the highest bridge in Myanmar at the time it was finished and the largest railway trestle in the world. The rail journey takes about 4 hours and after disembarkation you will enjoy a traditional local lunch, before being taken by train to Pyin Oo Lwin and then by car back to Mandalay.
