Trekking Shan State
The Shan State of Myanmar is known for its trekking possibilities, especially between Kalaw and the Inle Lake. I decided to do a 2 days/1 night trekking. In the morning of the first day we (3 French guys, a guide and me) we dropped by car about an hour from Kalaw. Here we started the trekking through the hills passing by a few villages. Along the way the guide told us about the agriculture and the culture in this area. After about 20 kilometres of trekking we arrived in a small village where we would stay for the night.
The night was spend at a home-stay. After diner (made by the guide and the family hosts) I joined the family at the camp-fire to keep myself warm during the cold evening. With just a few hours of sleep (the snoring French guys kept me awake) I started the second day of trekking. We walked for about five hours until we reached the south side of the Inle Lake. Here we had a lunch before we got on a small boat that took us to the town of Nuangshwe across the Inle Lake.
