Day 1 PINDAYA – HTUT NI – HSEE KYA INN – YASAKYI (trek 12 km mostly uphill, approx. 4 ½ (L, D)

Start the trek from the hotel around 8:00 am. The first one and a half hours will be an uphill walk with a difference in altitude of 100 m, to Htut Ni, a Danu village. There, you will visit people from the village and have a chance to see how they produce the tea that they sell for a living. Continue to Hsee Kya Inn Monastery, which is also located at one of the Danu villages, 6 km away from Pindaya. This journey will be a walk uphill for another hour, with an altitude difference of 150 m, with beautiful scenery and tea plantations along the way. Lunch will be served at the Hsee Kya Inn monastery or in the village. After lunch, proceed to Yazakyi, a typical Palaung village consisting of 80 houses. It will be about a two-hour walk on a trail that goes up and down, passing some forests and very rocky hills. After visiting this village, continue a bit farther to the monastery for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 2 YASAKYI – MAE NE TAUNG – HTIN SHUU GONE – TAUNG PAW GYI – PINDAYA (trek 11-12 km, approx. 4 ½ hours) (B, L)

Breakfast at the monastery and start your trek at 8:00 am. It will be a round-trip trek back to Pindaya on a different route. The first one and a half hours will be a walk to Mae Ne Taung, a Pa-O village where you can see how cheroot leaves are cultivated. Continue for another hour to Htin Shuu Gone, another Danu village. After visiting this village, your walk will be mostly downhill, with a very nice view on the way. For another hour, you will walk to Taung Paw Gyi village, a very big village where people make their living from growing tea and coffee. There, you will already be able to glimpse Pindaya. After visiting the village, it’s an hour-long walk to Pindaya, mostly downhill without any steep steps.
