We then visit a local workshop making umbrellas and paper from the mulberry tree. This is one of the few areas in Myanmar still practicing this fast disappearing craft.
Then, transfer to Kalaw, is a former colonial British hill station, with local and colonial style houses. Its altitude ensures that the weather is cool throughout the year.
Start with a visit to Hnee Pagoda in the south west of the town, a 500 year old pagoda home to a bamboo Buddha statue. From there it is a leisurely 40 minute walk to the centre of Kalaw.

Our trekking Guide was excellent! He shared many insights into the Myanmar culture that made it very interesting. He was funny, informative and flexible. I would 100% recommend him. We have been on many tours over the years and this was the best. Our driver was also very funny and had cold cloths. He provided water and Wi-Fi in the car. The food was amazing on our trekking tour and the sights on our regular tour were all amazing. I would highly recommend using this private tour if you want a customized experience of the best places to see Myanmar.
