Spirit Festivals in August

by reublim Online Now Jan 20, 2013 at 1:31 AM

Hi,

I plan to visit Mandalay and Bagan in early August. I just found out that there are three festivals near Mandalay around that time:
1. Taung Byone Nat Pwe (Madayar, Mandalay)
2. Yadana Gu Nat festival (Amapura, Mandalay)
3. Shwe Kyun Pin Nat Pwe (Mingun)

and would like to know when exactly this year they are. It would be helpful if some locals could confirm the dates.

Also, any information such as time of day to visit and guides, accommodation or any other relevant info is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

    This site is unclear if the festivals posted refer to this year although it says 2013 at the bottom of the page. You can go to the main website and contact them for further information.
    This site clearly states the three festival dates and is for 2013
    Good luck and don't forget to post travel tips of the festivals!!!

    Thanks for your reply and links! I've seen some of them but they post differing dates, so need some confirmation.

    I won't be there during those times as I intend to travel the first week of August. So would like to confirm the Mingun festival if anyone is certain. Thanks!
