Chasing Mirages

Kalaw, Myanmar

Note: if you have been inspired to visit Kalaw, check out this more practical article to aid your planning.

Kalaw is a town about 50 km west of Inle Lake.  It’s a great area for hiking because, at an elevation of over 4,000 feet, its climate is cool year-round, and it is surrounded by green hills full of interesting vegetation and friendly villages.

If you go to Inle Lake, I strongly suggest that you give yourself 3 extra days so that you can trek there from Kalaw.  Due to poor planning, I didn’t have time to walk to Inle Lake, but my two-day trek wasn’t bad either.

Note:  Like all galleries I’ve posted, you can view larger versions of the photos by right-clicking on the thumbnails or on the images as you’re viewing the slideshow.
