Burma, Shan State – Lake Inle to Chiang Mai (6 days)

Due to the very recent opening of certain Burmese land border crossing points we’re very excited to able to offer this new extension to discover some of the less accessible parts of Shan State; the far southeastern region around Kengtung with its myriad hill-tribe peoples and spectacular mountain scenery.  Little frequented by tourists we’ll hike through the limestone hills of what was the heart of the notorious Golden Triangle region, visit remote highland villages and meet very traditional hill-tribe peoples as well as discovering the  charming town and former British administrative outpost of Kengtung itself and the bustling border market town of Tachileik before continuing overland to finish the tour in Thailand’s northern capital Chiang Mai.

Please note this 6 day tour is designed primarily as an extension to our existing 2 and 3 week Burma itineraries connecting Inle Lake to Kengtung and Chiang Mai. It can however be organised in reverse as a tailor-made extension to any North Thai tours if so desired connecting Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai to Burma and Inle Lake.
