Description

A pleasant 2 days walking tour to Yasakyi Village, mostly inhabited by the ethnic Danu and Palaung people. The path is relatively unknown to most of the tourists and specially crafted for people who like to hike off the beaten track.

In this tour, you will get to learn the wide spreading culture of local people and a new trekking route to Danu Village will be introduced. Witness local farmers still working with oxen and buffalo rather than machines in this traditional rural environment and thoroughly pass through colourful farming of vegetables and flowers on your way.

Experience the Shan train ride, hiking in the villages and picnic dinner on the hill overlooking stunning view of the Inle Lake. The country side in the Shan State offers the most stunning pictures.

In every season, the colours of the fields are different and the farmers doing their work offer great photo opportunities. Meeting the local tribal people and observing their typical ways of life are simply amazing.
