Kalaw – 6+ Mile Trekking

After checking into the hotel is was time for our 6+ mile trekking journey through a mountain side in Kalaw.  This part of the country is so beautiful – colorful landscapes, great views and a glimpse into the rural life of Myanmar (visiting a local hill-tribe village).  When we finished here it was time to make the return trip back to our vehicle – where the trails were a bit more intense.

The land here is so rich and fertile everything grown here flourishes – as if everything is on steroids.  While trekking we came across what we thought was a small snake, it turned out to be an earthworm!  Yes this is a 12″ long Myanmar earthworm (see below)!  We ended up seeing several of these along the trip.

Out of the endless fields of fruits and vegetables we saw, here’s a few of the ones that stood out:

  • Tangerine Groves (which we sampled – very tasty!)
  • Cabbages
  • Dragon Fruit
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Avocados
  • Potatos
  • and of course… Rice!
