Mindat Chin Festival
Usually taking place in February, depending on the phase of the moon, the Chin Festival in Mindat (around 8 hour drive west from Bagan) is a chance for the Chin tribe from remote villages in the surrounding mountains to meet in the market town Mindat, for a traditional celebration, but also for shopping and courtship. The festival is thus an opportunity to see and compare the diverse costumes, tattoos and jewellery and to experience Chin culture in a context of music, dance and everyday life.
We offer 3-4 day travel programmes from and to Bagan or Yangon for this festival, which can easily be combined with other travel plans or an Amara River Cruise.
We need a longer notice period for this programme, since we must apply for your special permit. Please enquire for more information on dates and prices.
