The crops range from cauliflower and cabbage to chilies, garlic and peanuts, depending on the time of year. Stop in a village with lovely surroundings where a meal will be served in a family house. From here the afternoon continues with more hills, which offer a bit of a challenge, and through more Danu and Pa-Oh villages as well as Taung Yoe, one of the smaller hill tribes of the area. Upon arrival in Thar Mine Khan in the late afternoon, you will have time to relax and enjoy the quiet setting, taking a short stroll around to learn more about local lifestyles. A home cooked dinner will be served before settling in for a good night of sleep in a house or monastery.

Tag XX: WaGyiMyaung – KhaungDaing

Während Sie mit Panoramablick auf die unberührte Umgebung erwachen, können Sie die morgendliche Routine der Dörfler beobachten, die sich auf einen Tag der Landwirtschaft oder des Handelns vorbereiten. Nach einem herzhaften Frühstück schnüren Sie Ihre Stiefel und beginnen mit der Morgenwanderung in Richtung Inle-See. Nach etwa einer Stunde Fußmarsch bergab erreichen Sie die Gemeinde KyaukNget. Dort halten Sie für eine Tasse Tee und haben die Möglichkeit, mehr über die Menschen, die in den Hügeln um den Inle-See herum wohnen, zu erfahren. Der letzte Teil Ihrer Wanderung bringt Sie durch Felder mit verschiedenem Gemüse und nochmals bergab zur Küste des Inle-Sees. Nachdem Sie weitere 2 Stunden und 30 Minuten gelaufen sind, werden Sie das Dorf KhaungDaing gegen Mittag erreichen. Dort wird ein Boot auf Sie warten, um Sie für Ihre wohlverdiente Pause zu Ihrem Hotel zu bringen.
