Crossing Myanmar in december, who's in?

Hello,
My wife and I are on a RTW trip, we are currently driving across China. We are discussing with travel agencies in Myanmar to cross the country from India to Thailand. We would like to be at the Indian/Myanmar border around december, 8th and plan to cross the country in 10 days.
Is anyone interested in joining us to share the police escort price?

Yes - possibly, but would need to be late December to be more workable for me.

Cheers,

Interested to know how you are arranging the Myanmar crossing? I'm getting no response at all from the official Myanmar tourist agency. We are thinking about crossing from Thailand to India next year.

Hi Guillaume

I sent you an email to Gmail, mine is being really slow in Iran. I will be in India at this point and can join you to cross Myanmar. Please contact me if you are interested to have me join you. I may be alone at this point as my fellow travelers fly home from New Delhi but my final destination is Australia and looking for a way to get closer before i ship the bike.

We're interested!

Hello,

My husband and I are currently in Nepal and we are very interested in crossing Myanmar from India to Thailand and your dates look good to us. We had been in touch with an agency back in August to arrange a trip from Thailand to India, but it fell through in the end due to the Indian borders closing. Do you know if they have reopened?

Please send me a PM to discuss details. We can get a quote from the agency we spoke to as well if you have an itinerary to pass along.

Kim

Hi cardpostale

Which company are you using in Myanmar. We are parked in Nepal entering India on a 6 month multi entry visa early December.

Looking at a 14 or 21 day Myanmar tour returning back to India around end of Feb.

Any suggestions, contacts?

Cheers

Same here - I would have jumped at the chance to come with you in early December but now I will have to travel early Feb 2014.

Can you also tell me what company you a have used.
The cost of the travel (as I think I may have to arrange in the same way as you have and look for others to join me)

What documents do you have to submit to the travel company before arriving at the boarder?

Thanks

Ben

Crossing Myanmar/Burma March 2014

Hallo,
Some agencies are organizing the trip to cross Myanmar but is really expensive.
I know about one german guy organizing a 14 days tour the 20 of februray, it cost 2000 euros. I have heard about one group crossing the 5th of february 2014 but I am not sure.
Just right now one friend of mine is crossing in 3 night and 4 days (crazy) wit a small group, he organized this group with a good contact that he have in Myanmar providing escort, permits, hotels and food with a real cheap price.
I am in contact with him and I am trying to organize also a small group for the end of february beginning of march. The cost will be 1000 DOLLARS p/p for 7 nights with all included and sleeping half of the nights in our vehicles. If there are more people the cost can decrease untill 600 DOLLARS p/p.
Right know we are in India (Chennai) with a James Cook 1979 coming from Spain if someone is interested to cross Myanmar with a real cheap price please contact us, our web is somnisbus.wordpress.com

Hi everyone,

We are still very keen on crossing Myanmar. We had originally hoped to do so around this time, but of course our plans have changed.

We are now interested to do the crossing from India to Thailand at the beginning of Feb 2014. Our Indian visas expire on the 4th... so we need to get through beforehand

If anyone has any contacts with agencies to arrange all necessaries, please send me a message with the details. Of course if anyone is interested in joining us we are always happy to share costs and experiences with others!

Thanks,
Kim
