    To make a three days trekking from Kalaw to the Inle lake was my greatest experience in Burma. Our trekking was provided by Golden Lily Guest House and we were a group of 5 people. Mr. Khin Maung Cho, a gentleman, was our guide.
    First day, we passed a Pinus Forest, had a lunch in a monastery, Shapin village, and spent the night in a traditional family house in Kyua village.
    Second day, we passed many open fields, where we had the opportunity to see the villagers working in their lands. We visited the Tuesday market of Nantaing and had a lunch in a monastery in Jyuekw Town. We spent the night in a monastery in Htee Thein village.
    Third day, we passed open fields and a Tropical Rainforest. At the end of our trekking, we passed a Bambu Forest. Finally, we had a lunch at Indein?? and were transfered by boat to Nyaung Shwe.

    After the discusting dinner in Shan Ma Lay we went to this place.Descibed in LP as a restaurant with a rock & roll vibe.
    Well indeed they have gitars all over the wall but the food is rock and we are glad to roll away.

    Well of course thousands of tourist have been walking the same paths as you but still the lack of package tours give you some explore's feeling.
    The Shan people welcome you with tea and neverseen hospitality.
    We spend so much time drinking tea with the local people we couldn't get back on time to our hotel.
    Friendly as the people are ,we got a ride in a truck back to Kalaw , no problem.
    Our trekking guide named Charles is one of the friendliest people we have met in Myanmar (and that means a lot).
    Loved and known by all the villagers we couldn't have a better guide to spend the day with.
    We hope to go back 1 day and then do a 4 day trekking for this was our best Myanmar experience.
    Thanks to VT member Laura for recommending him to us and for all the detailed info she mailed us
