Aviation authorities are planning to run direct flights between Bagan and Lumbini for Buddhist pilgrims in Myanmar, according to the Ministry of Hotel and Tourism.

“We are trying to arrange a pilgrimage from Angkor Wat, Bagan, Lumbini, Gaya, Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic in Sri Lanka to Shwe Dagon Pagoda.

“We learnt that an international airport will be opened in Lumbini (Nepal) in May. With a direct flight to Lumbini, where the Buddha was born, it will be easier for Myanmar pilgrims to visit.

We are trying to introduce a trip to Lumbini through the Angkor Wat-Bagan direct flight, which will start in October, ” said Tin Latt, Deputy Minister for Hotel and Tourism.

Myanmar and Nepal signed MoUs to promote the tourism sector in 2019, and Nepal has announced its “Visit Nepal in 2020” plan to introduce travel destinations in its country.

There are many places in Nepal that tourists are keen to visit and Lumbini is one of them.
