A group of educators and business executives are “traveling in passion” on Irrawaddy River in a special learning trip organized by Paxxioneer and China Exploration & Research Society (CERS).

HM Explorer, the research boat of CERS which they are making home this week, was built in 2013 in Monywa — the ship-building capital of Myanmar. This special-built exploration vessel can navigate almost all courses of Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers, Myanmar’s two largest river systems. HM Explorer carries researchers to regions inaccessible by car to study and keep records of the endangered Irrawaddy dolphin, as well as lives of fishermen, rafters and various ethnicities along the rivers.

This research boat is operated by 8 wonderful crew who know literally everything about the rivers and support the work of the researchers.
