Navigation on the Irrawaddy

Where to take the boat?

Where to Go

The River is full of navigational hazards and keeps changing from week to week and day to day. The channels are continually changing and fixed navigational markers are next to impossible. Dredged channels disappear quickly.

River levels can vary by 30 feet depending on rainfall and time of year.

A tricky challenge for the Captain at the best of times.
