Kalaw to Inle Lake Soft Trekking – 4 Days / 3 Nights

Kalaw to Inle Lake Soft Trekking – 4 Days / 3 Nights

In my experiences of travelling around Myanmar, the place that always captures my imagination most is Kalaw in the ShanState. This former British colonial hill station offers exceptional hiking routes around the town including treks to the stunning InleLake. An area of natural beauty, the place is peacefully quiet while covered in verdant green pastures with an abundance of flora and fauna, natural stones and traditional hill tribes. It is a wonderful place to embark on an adventurous trek, with opportunities to meet the local Palaung people and learn about their ways of life.

The rolling hills of the spectacularly beautiful and untouched ShanState provide the perfect environment for soft trekking. Elevated with cooler air temperatures, the landscape is verdant, rich in color and ripe for exploration. Begin your tour of Myanmar trek in Kawlaw, a former British hill station in the heart of the ShanState.  Explore the town and its charming architectural blends of local and colonial style housing.

Visit Kawlaw’s morning market before setting off on an hour long trek to Kone Hla village, passing farmers at work tending to crops in the open fields. After lunch it’s a 2.5 hour trek to Htee Tein filled with stunning views of the Shan Mountain Range along the way. Continue your tour of Myanmar with a stay in a village monastery, a truly unique experience. Dinner is prepared in the monastery for an evening meal.

From Htee Tein it’s a 4 hour trek to InleLake. Pass through breathtaking sceneries of green rolling hills and sweeping panoramic views down to InleLake. There are also opportunities to meet with a number of hilltribes including the Pa-O, Danu, Taung Yoe and Inthar. The Pa-O are noted by their unique dress with the men and women donning long black pants and black shirts, the women wearing a colorful turban and large earrings.

Explore local villages around InleLake to learn about the varying lifestyles. Enjoy lunch at Than Daung village before walking to the jetty where a boat is waiting to take you to your hotel. The last day of your Myanmar tour is at your leisure. Add an InleLake day trip to further uncover the beauty of this region.
