Yough Pioneer Tours

South East Asia

YPT spend so much time planning and guiding tours to obscure destinations around the world, but sometimes even we need a tour that is slightly more relaxing or just plain fun. If you want an Asian holiday like this, you can join us in the Philippines or Nepal, Cambodia or Myanmar. With YPT it’s never quite so simple however, we will be taking part in ‘extreme sports’ and watching crucifixions in the Philippines, pursuing Maoist politics in post-Civil War Nepal, looking for Khmer Rouge in jungle towns and spending a unique Christmas in the mountains of Myanmar. And for 2018, we are also going to one of the most difficult places to get to, for the Mt Hagen festival in Papua New Guinea, a tribal celebration that will take you to a totally different world.
