Get back to nature with a fabulous day of trekking Inle Lake. The hills surrounding Inle Lake are full of spectacular trails and beautiful villages begging to be explored.
Set off in the morning with a knowledgeable local guide. Take a short transfer away from town and then it’s time to hit the trails!
Head into the hills, using a series of switchback trails to gain elevation. Pass through fields growing everything from tea to cabbages, pausing to learn about the Shan State’s agricultural culture. Depending on the time of year, the fields may be busy with farmers planting or harvesting crops. There is plenty of time to stop for photos and to take in sweeping views of valleys and distant hills.
In addition to beautiful scenery, trekking Inle Lake also showcases the cultural diversity of the Shan State. Pass through villages inhabited by different ethnic groups and discover how the people have maintained their own distinctive culture, traditions and, quite often, their own language!
Lunch will be served in one of these villages- either in a local house or monastery. This is a great way to get a closer look at local life.
Continue the Inle Lake trek after lunch, enjoying more spectacular views before heading back to town. (L)
