Trekking to Hill Tribes from InLe Lake



Your tour will begin bright and early as you meet your local guide at your hotel and let them whisk you to the boat that will take us to our first stop. 

For 45 minutes we’ll glide across the lake admiring beautiful views of the green hills beyond and the idyllic stilt villages with their pretty floating gardens. 

We will dock at Magyigone Village and once we have disembarked the boat, your guide will give a quick safety briefing. 

Your scenic trek will take approximately 3 hours, taking you through some of Southeast Asia’s most spectacular panoramas; through the peaceful serenity of the Shan Hills, a mesmerising region that is famous for its rubies, sapphires and other precious gems, all of which is on the waitlist for UNESCO World Heritage status. 

Passing through terrace farms, bamboo forest and lush plantations, we’ll arrive at Moe Kaung Village, a pretty hilltop village where we will meet a friendly local family and talk to them about rural life on the lake. We’ll then share a deliciously traditional Burmese lunch with our new friends before making our way to another village. 

Here we will take a walk around, admiring the different styles of home and chatting to locals about their everyday lives. The views of the lake from this are to die for, so you’ll definitely want to spend some time pondering the vistas and taking Instagram-worthy pictures that you’ll treasure forever. 

After a short boat ride, you’ll find yourself back in the hustle and bustle of Nyaung Shwe. The tour ends with a safe trip back to your hotel.
