Did you just do the trekking from Kalaw to Inle Lake but want more? Or, you didn't do the trekking but wish you did? Then you simply shouldn't miss the one day trekking we offer at Song Of Travel Hostel!
Sign up at our front desk one day in advance. The trekking starts at 8:00am after breakfast. Make sure you leave the hostel with stomach full.
After 30mins walking among local houses and farms, you will reach a dam. From there you will start the climbing. About 40mins you will reach the meditation cave. (We also organize a separate trip to the cave every Sunday afternoon - https://www.songoftravel.com/blog/2018/5/6/sunday-cave-day).
After the cave, the real adventure begins as you will hardly see any tourists or humans :D. Our guide will show you interesting things along the way and some culture facts. Most of the roads are really narrow with cliff next to you. That's where the breathtaking views are at. If you want to take some pics, just tell our guide he will stop.
There is a resting place by the mountainside where you can sit down for a bit. Depends on the guide, but if you are lucky you might witness a magic - how to make bubbles out of a leaf.
You will reach the village where you have lunch at around 12:00pm - 1:00pm depends on how fast do you walk. It's your choice of how long you want to rest after lunch.
After lunch, the road back is mostly downhill. You will have the amazing view of the lake and Nyaung Shwe town along the way.
We also fixed broken water pipe along the way. According to our guide, the pipe goes to the winery (https://www.songoftravel.com/blog/2018/5/16/wednesday-winery)
You will reach the hostel in about 2 hrs.
The total trekking is about 20km. The cost for the trekking depends on how many people that day. Ask our front desk for more information.
