3 days hiking without guide in november 2017. We spent 2 nights in tent... but actually you don't need a tent because there are guesthouses and monasteries (you can stay in exchange of a donation) along the way. There are also many shops and restaurants (I noticed all of them of the map). Carry only one litter of water per person, it will be enough until the next village.
The track is not flat as I was ready to go up and down.
My gps turned crazy when I turned it off by the altitude level is wrong (you'll see a huge altitude 2 times). Inthein ruins are beautiful. Inspectors check if turists have their Inle Lake zone ticket (so we had to buy it, 10$ each). From Inthein, you can catch a boat or hitchhike to Nangshwe.

    Merci beaucoup Flo pour cet itinéraire super détaillé! Suivi en mars 2018, un peu sec donc paysage un peu brûlés mais supers villages traversés et très peu de touristes!
    Prévoir peut être pastille pour traiter l’eau, certains shops étaient fermés hors saison, il a fallu se débrouiller avec l’eau du puit. Pas de problème pour trouver à manger par contre
