India-Myanmar-Laos by land

Is it possible to enter Myanmar from India by land????

I have also read that it is prohibited to enter Laos from Myanmar by land, but, are there any possibilities to do it???

If I decide to, are there transportation available from border to border???

Thanks!

1. No. A very special permission may work.

2. No way.

3. If you decide to, you better contact your Embassy first.

With a special permission, it could be ok to enter Myanmar from India by land, especially at Tamu from Myanmar site. But please update with travel agent or embassy as to have special permission you must buy a package tour from travel agent.

For Raining Season, land route may not work to access to major cities from the border as the roads are not good. From Tamu, drive to Kalay and than you have to take flight to Mandalay.

To cross border to Lao from Myanmar it is not possible. But you have alternative to go to Thailand but for the moment it is not allowed to do. We hope it will be ok again.

To cross border to Thai, you have to fly to Tarcheelate, the border town to Thailand. I think from Thailand to Lao is ok.

For both, you do need a special permission and only with package tour , Travel agent can do for you if those borders (especially Thai Border) open for tourist again. Make sure to check with Travel Agent for update news.

Thank you all for the help. It seems there are many restrictions to go by land. We will definitely fly.
