Ayeyarwady - Life Along Myanmar's Great River - Part 1: From Bhamo to Mandalay | Nature Documentary Watch 'Ayeyarwady - Life Along Myanmar's Great River - Part 2' here: https://youtu.be/67ikdxy8eFs Myanmar is dominated by the mighty Ayeyarwady River. The river, which is over 2170 km long and spans the entire country, is the country's lifeline and main transport artery. Since time untold, it has shaped the cultural development of the region. Even during the Colonial Period, the small city of Bhamo was already the last outpost in the north of the country and the final stop of the Irrawaddy steamboats, as the river is navigable only up to here. Early in the morning an old, run-down government ferry departs downstream, passing the "Second Gorge" of the Ayeyarwady. Domesticated work elephants are an everyday sight here, and they are trained in the village of Wei Ma. Not far away, the shores of the Ayeyarwady are mined for gold. From Katha, the first small town on the river's upper reaches, the British once governed all of "Upper Burma". The English author George Orwell was stationed here as a police officer. Early in the morning a privately run "express boat" disembarks, run by a 27-year-old young woman. She dreads the dangerous early morning fog, for the Ayeyarwady may be wide but it is not deep – and migrating shoals lurk everywhere. A day's journey downstream is the village of Myit Tan Gyi, a "dolphin village". Here, a school of freshwater dolphins helps the fishermen with their work. The dolphins herd the fish together and signal with their dorsal fin when the nets should be tossed. Mandalay. The second largest city of Myanmar, and former and final capital of the Kingdom of Burma, is enchanting: it is surrounded by temples and monasteries. Ms. San San Shwe, 30 years old, heads a business here that exists only in Mandalay. Her "gold beaters" hammer out the super-thin gold leaf used to adorn the Buddha statues of the country. In Mandalay, the 24-year-old Monk Owen teaches Buddhist critical thinking at a monastery-run school. He takes a boat trip with his students to the hills of Sagaing, the country's center of Buddhist teaching – 8,000 monks and nuns live here high above the Ayeyarwady River. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Subscribe Free Documentary - Nature Channel for free: http://bit.ly/2mFDC3Q Facebook: https://bit.ly/2QfRxbG Twitter: https://bit.ly/2QlwRiI ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #FreeDocumentaryNature #Documentary #Myanmar ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Free Documentary is dedicated to bring high-class documentaries to you on youtube for free.
