The Shan Hills & The Loikaw Loop (16 days)

An off-the-beaten track tour, focusing on some little visited areas around the plains and hills of central Myanmar, including some which have only recently become open for foreign visitors. This itinerary takes in a thorough exploration of the Shan Hills around Kalaw and Pindaya, plus an exciting overland journey across the central plains from Mandalay to Bagan, stopping overnight at Monywa en route. As Myanmar continues its slow and steady process of opening up to the world, we can expect to see numerous areas become available for exploration. One such is the Kayah state capital Loikaw, home to some fascinating tribal areas and the midway point of a fantastic loop from Kalaw and up through to Inle Lake.
