From the village of Ti Thein, the trail first goes through fields with colourful crops (late November/early December), then it passes through a forest, monastery and a village to climb to a mountain pass where you buy the permit for the Inle lake. Shortly before and several kilometres after the pass, the landscape becomes emptier. You continue along dirt road and then turn left into a path. The more you descend to the lake, the more lavish vegetation becomes. At the village of Indein (the 16th kilometre) you take a boat to Nyaung Schwe.

Our guide Sai Min from Naing Naing Bike & Trek in Kalaw was very knowledgeable and a great trek companion. He can adjust the trek to your needs (saiminlatt077@gmail.com).

You should not attempt to follow the trail on your own, as it goes through the fields that might be unpassable at certain seasons, or through private properties. The guide can also order food and accommodation and interpret in contacts with local people.
