Originally constructed by the British as a reservoir in 1878, Moeyungyi has slowly evolved over a period of many years to become the 40 square mile natural treasure trove you see today. With over 125 species of birds, including 75 migratory species, it is one of the best places in Myanmar from which to carry out a spot of bird watching or wildlife photography. In order to truly experience Moeyungyi, Tour Mandalay would recommend staying overnight at Moeyungyi Wetland Resort, where it is possible to observe the flora and fauna from wooden walkways, or pre-arranged overnight boat trips. A visit to Moeyungyi is also a great way to experience typical countryside lifestyle, and due to its remoteness, it is very unlikely you will share this with anyone else. As a result of unsuitable weather conditions, travel to the area is only advised in-between the months of November and March.
