"KALAW" Kalaw by hydronetta
Kalaw Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 93 photos
Kalaw in Shan State is a former colonial British hill station, sits at 1,300 meters elevation offering that way cool temperatures (chilling I would say in the evening)
What makes Kalaw interesting stopover for tourists is the trekking opportunities it offers to the surrounding minority villages. The treks can last anything from half a day to multiple days.
Travelling by car, Kalaw is about two hours west of Inle Lake on the western edge of the Shan hills.
- Pros:a must if you like trekking
- Cons:chilling if not prepared
By the end of our half day trekking we asked our guide where he would recommend we have a lunch in Kalaw. Very very... more travel advice
Colourfully dressed Palaung is one of the 135 minority tribes of Myanmar with a turbulent history. Don't expect though... more travel advice
