Over 44,000 kilometres on the Odometer at Imphal. That's what we have clocked so far on this drive.




Aug 23, 2016
Finally Imphal!
Meet our friend from Imphal, he is an owner of splendid bookstore here.


Aug 23, 2016
As if we needed any confirmation that we are back!


Aug 23, 2016
Good Morning, India!
We wake up to a rather foggy morning in Moreh, and with the curfew now lifted, we make a quick dash for Imphal.




Aug 23, 2016
Keep Calm And Eat!
As soon as we entered India we stopped at Moreh to grab the good old Indian meal.




Aug 23, 2016
Once in India, the first thing we have to do is clear customs.


Aug 23, 2016
Cheers To Team #GLAadventure!
That moment when you drive the cars into your own country after doing some 44358 kms around the globe which includes 25 countries.

Finally the cars are back on Indian soil now!




Aug 23, 2016
Final few moments in Myanmar and we get to learn a thing or two at the Myanmar immigration point.




Aug 23, 2016
Decision Time!
Ultimately, we decided it's best to crossover from Myanmar to India.


Aug 23, 2016
‘Us Trying To Deal With Life’
We take a quick coffee break in order to figure out how to deal with the curfew.




Aug 23, 2016
It's not distraction by social media, apparently there is a 24 hour curfew in Imphal. We try to figure out, do we cross into India or do we stay back in Myanmar?

Adventure is far from over!




Aug 23, 2016
Make way, here we come!


Aug 23, 2016
It’s Raining, Yet Again!
As we progress towards India, the rain which has been with us on all days of this #GLAadventure leg is back.


Aug 23, 2016
Time To Go Home!
Finally it is the day for us to cross over from Myanmar to India. En route we cross this rather long wood and iron bridge.




Aug 23, 2016
We couldn't have asked for a better way to end our day in Myanmar!



Aug 23, 2016
We are getter closer to home. Now Moreh border is just 200kms away, and with that another day comes to an end.


Aug 23, 2016
Myanmar has its own share of old relics still running on the road, here is one we saw!



Aug 23, 2016
Look at the picturesque fields; we captured this on our way to Kale!


Aug 23, 2016
As we move ahead towards the border town of Kale the views kept getting better!




Aug 23, 2016
We have encountered some fascinating roads in #GLAadventure, here's one of them in Myanmar.




Aug 23, 2016
How Can One Not Fall In Love With Myanmar?
Must say, we have crossed a lot of bridges in Myanmar and some were very impressive, but this one just stole our heart. Just look at this beauty!

Our Food Diary
An early morning start for us means that our packed breakfast is a tad basic but very tasty!


Aug 23, 2016
It’s Time To Say Goodbye!

There is nothing like witnessing another beautiful sunset at Bodhi Ta Htaung - Great way to call it a day!




Aug 23, 2016
And other than the tall statue, there are some 1,000 other Buddha statues at the Bodhi Ta Htaung.






Aug 23, 2016
Maha Bodhi Ta Htaung here planted thousands of Bo trees that hold religious significance for Buddhists, as it is the tree under which Buddha achieved enlightenment.


Aug 23, 2016
World’s Wonders: The Bodhi Tataung Standing Buddha

Food Heaven
Of course, no trip to a Gurudwara is complete without a sumptuous Langar!



Aug 23, 2016
#GLAadventure's memories from the Gurudwara!






Aug 23, 2016
The Gurudwara in Monywa was established by the Indian Army in 1885 and functions till this date.




Aug 23, 2016
Monywa Welcomes Team #GLAadventure
A visit to Monywa is not really about the town itself, but a series of interesting attractions in the surrounding countryside.

On our list is a visit to the local Gurudwara which has existed for some 131 years.


Aug 23, 2016
Capturing The Sun In All Its Glory
Over 40,000kms and six continents covered but the cars still look good, don't they? The sunset ain't too bad either.




Aug 23, 2016
Spotted On The Highway – Elephant Express

Aug 23, 2016
Beat The Summer Heat With Coconut Water
Given the heat and humidity of Myanmar, Coconut Water is the best remedy! Next stop for us is Monywa.


Aug 23, 2016
The U-Bien bridge does offer a lot of opportunities for photographers - It's beautiful indeed!


Aug 23, 2016
Our postcard memories from U-Bein Bridge!




Aug 23, 2016
#GLAadventure's recommendation: A great time to visit the bridge is just after sunrise when hundreds of villagers and monks commute back and forth across it.

This is Mr. Lu Maw who delivers jokes that are on the dark side and a bold reminder of what life was like under decades of oppressive military rule in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma.

The group, which has been active for more than three decades, is renowned in the country for political satire, which still risks a prison sentence for its performers if delivered in Burmese in a public site.

Meet The Moustache Brothers!
They are a comic trio from Mandalay, Burma known for live performances that combine screwball comedy, classic Burmese dance, and sharply satirical criticism of the totalitarian Burmese military regime.

Localities enjoying the spectacular sights of Mandalay Hill.


Aug 23, 2016
A panoramic view of Mandalay from the top of Mandalay Hill. This view makes it worth the climb.






Aug 23, 2016
Atop The Mandalay Hill
Mandalay Hill is a 240 metres (790 ft) hill that is located to the northeast of the city centre.
The city of Mandalay took its name from the hill - Mandalay Hill, is known for its abundance of pagodas and monasteries, and has been a major pilgrimage site for Burmese Buddhists for nearly two centuries now.

With Love From Mandalay!
Look at this gorgeous lobby of the Bagan King hotel - this is where we are staying.


Aug 23, 2016
We continue to make our way into Mandalay, which can be defined as a hot and busy. Mandalay is mostly used by travellers as a transport and day-trip hub.

Aug 23, 2016
We just can't get enough of the picturesque views of the sky in Myanmar!
