In January 2018 we did a beautiful trekking through mountains and remote villages in Shan state, Myanmar. Taking the two days/one-night trek (35km) from Kalaw to Inle Lake was a great experience, definitely one of our highlights while backpacking in Myanmar, along with the temples of Bagan.
It’s not the most impressive scenery and landscape you will see, but what does make this such an amazing experience, is because of its people! It’s amazing how the people of this country can be so friendly. The beauty of this trekking is that it allows you to walk through their lands and villages, stay in their houses, share a cup of tea and lots of smiles.
Our trek began early in the morning with Uncle Sam’s trekking service. Uncle Sam himself is an elderly, friendly man. In 1989 it was he who pioneered the idea of trekking from Kalaw to Inle Lake.
Our group of six was a perfect number for our two days away. It was us two, three funny Korean ladies and our guide Kuku.
Enjoy the pictures!
