Itinerary

 

Day 1        Yangon – Heho (By Flight) – Loikaw

Transfer to airport for flight to LOIKAW.
Almost the half of the population in the Kayah country in the British colonial time became Christians, baptized by an Italian parish priest. Therefore its not unusual that churches and even a Catholic cathedral where build in even every village or town. The local Bishop Sontero of the cathedral will be proud being visited by western tourist; his blessing is certain. Moreover we see ourselves around in the small museum, visit a meditation center and a nunnery.

Enjoy panoramic and sunset view from THIRI-MINGALAR TAUNG KWAE ZEDI, a famous land mark of the area, perched high up on a limestone monolith which affords great views of Loikaw and the surrounding mountain ranges.

Overnight stay in Loikaw.

 

Day 2        Loikaw – Community Tour

Breakfast at hotel. Tour to Padaung village, Pan Be where we submerge into the everyday life of the largely well known “giraffe neck women” of the tribe of the Padaung with its necks pulled by neck ring into unnatural length.

The villagers are making Kayan bracelets, weaving cotton, carving wooden, weaving bamboo and other handwork. You can see these activities and study. And you can enjoy the Kayan traditional lunch at a local home. And then, we will go to Hta Nee La Leh , Kayah village where you can see their way of life and believe. And you can visit around the village and their home. These include musicians who play traditional bamboo guitars, experts in Kayah dress, and artisans who make distinctive Kayah lacquer leg rings.

Overnight stay in Loikaw.

 

DAY 3 Loikaw -  Kakku – Nyaung Shwe

Breakfast at hotel. Drive approximately 3 hours toward Shan State, Taunggyi to visit the countryside inhabited by the Pa-O people lie the 'lost' ruins of Kakku, a pagoda encircled by dozens of small stupas. Little is known about the origins of this unusual place - the Pa-O believes that the original pagoda dates back some 2,000 years. Wander through the stupas which are decorated with fine stucco work and Buddha images - some in good repair, others not. Visit a Pa-O village and a large monastery on the way to Taunggyi. Continue from here to Nyaung Shwe or Inle Lake and drop off at your hotel.
