About Yu Mon & Phyo's Trekking
Yu Mon & Phyo are a young married local couple who offer guided hillside trekking tours out of Kalaw. They previously worked for one of the largest trekking companies in the area so they have lots of experience to offer their guests. They decided to venture out on their own so that they could offer a more personalized, authentic experience to travelers. Their treks go through a less-travelled route which include spectacular mountain views, hillside local villages, rice paddy fields and waterfalls. You are unlikely to encounter many other tourists on your route with Yu Mon & Phyo. They offer 1 day treks around Kalaw and 2 and 3 day overnight treks from the Kalaw area to Inle Lake. Come join Yu Mon and Phyo for an authentic local experience!

we had a fantastic time on our trek with yumon. She's an open-minded person with whom you can talk about everything and she's very humorous. she took great care of us on the trail, as we were there in the rainy season it was slippery and muddy a lot of the time. also the food was delicious and the made it possible for us to eat vegetarian. the overnight stay with local family was also a great experience which we would not want to miss.

We did a 2 day trekking and it was really amazing. Walking through the beautiful everchanging landscape from Kalaw - Inle Lake. We passed farmers that where working the land, rice feilds, small villages, muddy small paths, cows and buffalo’s. The real country side of Myanmar i think. Yumon told us a lot about the country, the people, the different tribes. We spent the night with at a pao tribe family which was lovely and the food was also really good. I recommend this 2 day trek to everybody who likes to hike and is interested in the country and its citizens.

We booked a 2 day trekking with Yumon and it was fantastic! The trekking itself is very good value for money. During the trekking you see nature changing every time. The Shan state and area around Kalaw / Inle lake is absolutely stunning :) After day one we stayed at a local house to sleep in a Pa’O tribe village which was very nice. Day two was partly rainy but beautiful again, especially while arriving at Inle lake :) The food during the trekking was lovely. Yumon told us a lot about everything we passed, she was a lovely and funny guide! Thanks Yumon for the amazing trekking :)

This is the hardest review i had to write.i had really high expectations for thid trek and it did not live up to do it.i cannot comment the guide name. And to be honest to call a guide it"s very shy,but not a guide.the food was highlight. Difficult to recommend.

Let’s start at the beginning: before arrival we wrote many mails with Yu mon and she helped us find a good place to stay in Kalaw and was answering all our questions. On the morning we started, she explained us the tour ahead and off we went. My girlfriend and I booked the private tour and we were guided by Yu mon and her sister Kk. On most parts of the tour we were by ourselves, only at some points the different routes come together, and you see other tourist groups. The track Yu mon and Kk chose was great: good view of the scenery, we passed many local villages and fields. Yu mon speaks very good English, she explained us a lot about the people, nature and country and we enjoyed talking with her about politics, culture, economic, or simply movies and TV shows. The trip was very entertaining - besides walking we used a pickup truck, scooter, boat and a bamboo raft for transportation. The food on the journey was very good. With our cook Nyan Linn we got very good original food served wherever we stayed - also Yu mon made sure during the whole trip that everything is clean so that no one gets sick. The family house we stayed for the night was very clean. You can tell that she does this job with passion. She has a great positive energy and the whole trip was organized perfectly. We had a lot of fun and can recommend her 100% without any hesitation.
