Day 01 YANGON – KYAING TONG

Transfer to airport for your morning flight to Kyaing Tong, the former Shan capital. The sightseeing in Kyaing Tong begins at the Maha Myat Muni Pagoda, where a replica of the famous Mahamuni Buddha is kept, and a local monastery where monks learn to speak the ‘Khun’ language, which is very similar to the language spoken in northern Thailand. You will then travel onwards to a place where you will learn how lacquerware is embossed in the Shan region. Overnight stay in Kyaing Tong.

Day 02 KYAING TONG – PINTAUK – KYAING TONG (B)

After breakfast, travel to the Pin Tauk region. A rich blend of monsoon woodlands with views of rice plains that resemble a huge green patchwork quilt upon which water from the flooded rice fields glistens. On the way to Pintauk, you will visit the village of Yan Law and its Khun tribes, as well as the village of Wan Pauk and its Red Palaung tribes. Eventually, you will arrive in Pintauk, where the Lahu tribes are to be found. Your tour guide will introduce you to some local villagers who belong to these tribes. Some of them have been baptized as Christians, but other tribes still practice animism. It takes about three hours to visit the villages by car, including visits to the people’s homes. In the late afternoon, return to Kyaing Tong. Overnight stay in Kyaing Tong.

Day 03 KYAING TONG – HO KYIN – KYAING TONG (B)

Early morning travel to Ho Kyin (approx. 1½ hours). Visit to the village of Hokyin, home of the Akha tribes, who still wear their traditional costumes with linked silver beads. A typical Akhu woman needs over an hour to get fully dressed in her costume. After this, you will visit three nearby Akha villages and see what everyday life looks like in this rural area. The hike is not difficult and can also be done at a slow pace. Return to Kyaing Tong in the afternoon. Overnight stay in Kyaing Tong.

Day 04 KYAING TONG – LOIMWE – KYAING TONG (B)

After breakfast, travel to Loimwe (approx. two hours), an old colonial town with various colourful ethnic groups. However, the greatest attraction is the landscape on the ascent towards Loimwe. You will pass through forests, terraced rice fields and a lake. You will make several stops on the way to Loimwe to visit different villages. Wan Lun Shan – stroll around and explore life in this native village; the Akha village Ho Lup, where you get the opportunity to see the traditional Akha tribes in their colourful costumes; the Naung Cho Wa tribal village - former headhunters, who now live on pears and other fruit - and the village of Pan Wai Lahu are located on both sides of the road. In the late afternoon, return to Kyaing Tong. Overnight stay in Kyaing Tong.

Day 05 KYAING TONG – YANGON (B)

Early morning visit to the lively market with its wide range of local products, handicraft products from the local tribespeople and goods from Thailand and China. Followed by transfer to Kyaing Tong airport and return flight to Yangon. Upon arrival, transfer to hotel, check in and overnight stay.
