This trip has many highlights but it's the little things that stay in my memory. I really loved the homestay at the little village of Sintaung, the family were so welcoming, the food was delicious and the whole experience was truly lovely.

Whether a first time visitor to Burma, or someone who wants to explore in greater depth, this unique holiday offers a unique insight into Burmese village life. Although centred around the picture-perfect region of Inle Lake, the trip also takes us to other areas and trails that few tourists ever see.

We begin our holiday exploring the area around Pindaya and the pretty hill town of Kalaw, once a cool, colonial retreat. From here we trek for three days through gentle rolling countryside, past tea gardens and cultivated fields where we see the local people going about their everyday lives. On trek, we stay in village homes and lodges for a truly authentic experience.

Arriving on foot at Inle Lake, there is ample time to explore the surrounding small villages, pretty countryside and atmospheric temples, as well as to take a boat ride across the lake’s tranquil waters. We can also take time to relax at our lakeside hotel and simply watch this enchanting world go by.
