Full description
Your tour begins bright and early as you meet your local guide at the meeting point. From there, travel to the boat aboard which you venture to your first stop. For the next 45 minutes, glide across the lake whilst admiring beautiful views of the green hills and idyllic stilt villages with their pretty floating gardens. You soon dock in the Magyigone Village, where your guide provides you with a quick safety briefing.

Your scenic trek then takes approximately 3 hours, leading you through some of Southeast Asia’s most spectacular panoramas. Journey through the peaceful serenity of the Shan Hills, a mesmerizing region that is famous for its rubies, sapphires, and other precious gems. Pass through terrace farms, bamboo forest, and lush plantations, before arriving to the Moe Kaung Village. Whilst there, discover a pretty hilltop village and chat with a friendly local family about rural life on the lake. You then enjoy a delicious and traditional Burmese lunch, before making your way to another village.

In the afternoon, take a walk around to admire the different styles of homes whilst chatting to locals about their everyday lives. Following a short boat ride, you result back in the hustle and bustle of Nyaung Shwe where your tour ends. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see and do on the lake, as well as tips for where to go for authentic souvenirs.
