I am planning to travel Myanmar next year February and I hope you can give me some information and advice on one special part of my itinerary.
After Yangon I’d like to fly to Kengtung and do some trekking before moving on to Inle Lake. Air Bagan offers flights to and from Kengtung tree times a week and I am wondering how reliable they are to take place. I contacted a local travel agent (why not myanmar) to arrange the booking for the flights and they assured that – apart from technical problems or bad weather – flights are reliable. Well, some travel reports do state otherwise for Myanmar in general, so I do have some doubts. I already made a booking for a hotel in Nyaungshwe, therefore it’s important I get there on time. That would be impossible if the planned flight from Kengtung gets cancelled. So I am wondering if some of you travelled to Kengtung or know about this flight connection and can share their knowledge concerning the reliability.
Thanks for your help!
