Which One's Pink?

The Search for the Pink-headed Duck in Burma.

Trip 4: Putting it all on Pink. Add Video

It's time to hunt smart! Instead of throwing money away on being told what not to do in Burma, this trip enlisted the help of a specialist travel agent, porters, guides and a flight from Mandalay to Khamti in the far north, to head down the Chindwin river into Nagaland on the trail of the pink-headed duck. Staying in a rustic, stilted village and bartering for gold was our night work; the days were spent in an un-surveyed area of wetlands that were the best territory discovered so far. For this was 'wild Burma', closed to tourists and accessible only to those with gold in their eyes - and ducks in their dreams.
