Perfect place for lunch on our hike from Kalaw.
Hiking from Kalaw
Kalaw in Myanmar is a charming little mountain village where many hikes start from. We chose a 2 night hike to Inle Lake opting for a less traveled hiking route.
There’s a special golden light in the mountains that make the colors stand out and makes sunrises and sunsets spectacular. The hike was 8 hours a day and required a light-medium fitness level. Try a home stay if possible, it’s quite unique to sleep in someone’s living room.
After 2 days of hiking with in a group with 3 British girls and a local guide we arrive at Inle Lake.
Boat tour Inle Lake
A very beautiful area famous for the local fishermen fishing early in the morning. They use one leg to paddle the boat while they fish. Go for a guided boat trip to see the water gardens, visit local shops with handmade jewelry or strike a barging when locals try to sell their wood carvings over the side of the ship. It’s was one of the more developed areas with many hotels to chose from.
