Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 467 reviews and 936 photos
Whenether it's a short day hike or a five-day journey, trekking is the main reason to come to Kalaw.
The plateau near Kalaw is inhabited by people of the Palaung tribe.
Development in the form of running water and electricity is coming slowly but sporadically to villages in the area, and living conditions on the whole are not as primitive as some might expect.
Most groups on day hikes stop at the Vieuwpoint, a guesthouse owned and operated by a Nepali family.
Vieuwpoint's accommodation is bare bones - no electricity, no running water - but it's extremely peaceful, and the owner cooks up fantastic meals (assorted vegetable curries and rice).
Hikers need to be prepared witgh good shoes and warm clothing for the cool evenings.
Trekking goes on year round, but expect muddy conditions during the rainy season (May/June to November)
