Moeyun Gyi Wetlands

Moeyun Gyi wetlands are situated in Bago Division, about 70 miles north of Yangon, by the Yangon � Mandalay highway. It is just two � hour drive from Yangon. In 1878 a water storage reservoir was constructed in Moeyungyi area. Many year later, the reservoir changed naturally into wetland with the extend of 40 square miles which have high wetland conservation value. As a result, the wetlands have been notified as a wildlife sanctuary since 1988.

Every year, millions of birds usually fly from the northern hemisphere to the south along the East Asian- Australlian Flyway to escape from winter. They stop to rest and feed in Asia. So the flyway contains a network of wetlands and Moeyungyi is one of the them.

Moeyungyi is a vital shelter for both reaident nd migratory waterfowls. A census at Moeyungyi revelaed that there are 125 species of waterbirds including 70 species of migrants. Little Grebe,Grey Heron, Sarus Crane, Asian Open- Bill, Ruddy Shelduck, Purple Swamphen, Spot � Billed pelican, Pheasant Tailed Jacana, Black Winged Stilt, Great Cormorant, etc., can be seen abundantly.

The best season to visit is from November to March . In addition to bird watching , you can observe the livelihood of local populace, fauna and flora of the wetlands.
