Trekking in Myanmar

For sport-minded tourists, trekking in Myanmar (Burma)‘s various trails have something for everyone of different body-builds and interests. You will discover places where tourists rarely go:

  • Kalaw in Shan plateau, home to ethnics Palaung, Pao and Taung Yoo
  • Hsipaw (or Thibaw), in the northern region, not far from former capital Mandalay
  • Kengtung (or Keng Tung, Kyaing Tong), in the western part of the country, bordering the famous Golden Triangle
During hiking tours, you will walk from village to village among different ethnic groups, discover local life, spend nights in tribal villages or monasteries. You will find crafts, markets, Buddhist caves, so many things that make the authenticity of the country. These activities will be the highlights of your trip.

These walks are rated “medium level” but you will walk during 4-7 hours a day (usually on dirt paths). They can be integrated into our circuits of 2-3 weeks.
