Belmond Good Living, Myanmar

Belmond x Raha Moharrak:
Peak tales


Our friends at Belmond – who are usually all about the joy of understated but unequivocal luxury travel – aren’t exactly the type to shout news from the rooftops, so we thought they had chosen quite the stately location, London’s Royal Academy of Arts to unveil their latest project, Belmond Good Living. Though it was only fitting.

Belmond Good Living, a conceptual approach to travel that enriches both the body and mind, will see a variety of little wonders unleashed upon the hotel brand’s guests in 2020, all led by inspirational figures in their respective fields. An immediate OutThere favorite is the Inspiring Adventure itinerary, curated by ‘curious conqueror’ and experience maker Raha Moharrak, the youngest Arab woman to have climbed Mount Everest – among other, similarly impressive peaks, that is.

An exclusive group of wanderlusting explorers is in for a memorable expedition around Myanmar’s little-visited Bhamo, a town on the shores of the Ayeyarwady not far from where mountains close in on the rural plains, stacked against one another all the way to the Himalayas. From the considerable comfort (no really, we would know) of the Belmond Road to Mandalay river cruise ship, Moharrak will be hosting adventures before sharing stories and insider’s advice for those looking to follow in her snowed over footsteps up the Everest.

Scared of heights? Belmond Good Living comprises some more down-to-Earth experiences, too – some more flowery than others – though being the Belmond fans that we are, we’re just going to assume they’re all highlights in their own way.
