The little town of Hsipaw located on the banks of Duthawadi River, is one of the most pristine regions in Myanmar which is locally and internationally famous for trekking through the tribal villages.
At first, we pay a visit to the Central Market which is one of the best markets to explore in Burma. Shan, Kachin and many other ethnic groups come here to trade regularly. You can find a wide range of products here from radios, spare parts to diverse foodstuffs, and of course, Shan clothing like trousers, hats or sandals.
Then, we will go out of the town to visit Myit Son - the confluence of the Legendary Dokehtawaddy river.
On the way, we will stop at a very untouched Shan village called Sone Long by passing through beautiful paddy fields, lush plantations and some railway tracks. This village offers you an opportunity to visit the tiny train station and a relaxing walk around the area to experience the different life styles of the tribal people and their unique & traditional houses.
As we return to Hispaw, we get back to the hotel and collect our stuffs for loading on our bikes. Enjoy your lunch at a good local restaurant in Hsipaw.
After that, our next adventure will begin with a ride up to Palaung Tribe Village (also known as Pan Kham Village) located on the high mountain of more than 1,400 above the sea level.
Overnight at local house in the village.
