Destination Asia Burma/Myanmar has developed a two day program exploring Kalaw and Inle Lake by following trekking trails through the region. Anyone with a general level of fitness will enjoy this walk and the overnight stay at a local monastery in Hti Thane. Although the guide will do all they can to ensure a comfortable stay, conditions at the monastery are basic. Sleeping quarters are dormitory-style with a simple mattress and pillow provided. Our trek commences at Bow Hnin Gone, from which we walk to Htun Gone Village and eventually onto Gone Hal Village. Following lunch we carry on our journey to Hti Thane, stopping at Tu Park and a number of small villages.
The next day we depart the monastery for Kyauk Su Village before heading towards the village of Than Taung where views of the lake present themselves. Our final descent is through an impressive gorge leading to Inle Lake itself.
