tour description

Pick up from your hotel and drive approximately 50 minutes from Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo) to Banbawe village, on the road towards Naung Pain and Hsipaw. Turn off onto a dirty track where shortly afterwards you start your walk from the village of Kyu Inn, an area rarely visited by tourists, despite its proximity to Maymyo.
Here you will have a great opportunity to see and experience rural life unchanged over centuries. Walk for approximately two hours 1/2 on gently undulating paths through the two farming villages of Kyu Inn and Inn-wine, and the village of Htone Kone, where the villagers make lime by baking limestone in kilns. The villagers are mostly Shan people with a few Bhamar whose seasonal crops include rice, sunflower, maize, sugar cane and pigeon beans. At the end of the hike, there is an optional steep scramble down to Inn-wine waterfall, surrounded by dense jungle. Climb back up to the track, where the car is waiting to drive you back to Maymyo.
