Ecotourism is commonly defined as nature and culturebased tourism that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation, and ensures benefits to the local community.
By this definition, ecotourism requires wilderness, something of which Myanmar has no shortage. The country has been identified as one of 25 hotspots of biodiversity, home to an astonishing 1017 species of birds (not including other migratory species), 300 species of mammals, 360 species of reptiles and 1014 species of butterflies. The forests are still home to tigers and wild elephants, as well as leopards, bears, deer and other large mammals.

The dormant volcano Mt Popa, easily visible from Bagan, makes an enjoyable side trip, while just across the Ayeyarwady River, Natmataung is less than a day’s drive away in southern Chin State.
