Kalaw is a city located in Central Myanmar. It is a short 6-hour bus journey from Bagan. While the city of Kalaw itself has a lot of beautiful pagodas to explore, the real highlight is a trek starting from Kalaw to Inle Lake. The trek takes 3 days. Expect absolutely incredible lanscapes & countryside sceneries, young monks & monasteries, local villages and an amazing atmosphere!
The first section is a 18km hike with a positive 291m from Kalaw to Kyauk Su. The second section is a 21km hike with a negative 320m from Kyauk Su to Kyuat Su. The third section is a 16km hike with a negative 534m from Kyuat Su to the Southern West Inle Lake Jetty. It is a really easy hike overall.
As the lighting conditions were quite horrible, these landscape photos do not give justice to how beautiful the scenery is! It is definitely gonna be one of the highlight of this Myanmar trip!
