We had booked a 3-day -2 night trek from Kalaw with the Komin Kalaw agency. The first contact took place at the beginning of January on whatsapp . From our first exchange, we knew the organization of the trek with the rate for the 3 days. The manager asked us our names, first names, the name of the hotel in Kalaw and the name of the hotel when the trek arrived. The booking was made without paying any deposit. The day before we left, we receive a message to tell us when they would pick us up from the hotel and the list of necessary things we had to bring. 1st Day: Meet at 8:30 a.m. in front of the hotel with our English-speaking guide Salay and the head of the agency. We start the trek with Salay via the historic Kalaw railway station. We walk through forests, villages, monasteries. Salay explains the flora and fauna of the landscapes we pass through. We make small stops. At noon, our cook had prepared an excellent Burmese meal. He will wait for us every step of the way to prepare meals (breakfasts, lunches, dinners). He introduced us to the cuisine of his country with different dishes during our stops. We talked to a monastery official. The 1st night will take place in a family home in a village of a Burmese ethnic group (Pa O). The host family had prepared a bed under a mosquito net. We had many blankets at our disposal as the nights were cool. The toilets were rudimentary, the shower also as there is no running water and no electricity. We wash with the water from the well. We sleep very quickly, tired by the 20 km walk. 2nd day: After a good breakfast we go back to meet the business farmers by their daily tasks. We cross many fields in cultivation (garlic, cauliflower, rice paddies, peppers, sugar cane, potatoes, flowers.). We come across herds of buffalo that cool in rivers under the supervision of their owners. After 19 km, another night in another Burmese ethnic group (Danu). Always the same warm and smiling welcome from the locals. Our evening ends in a long discussion with the village chief. Day 3rd: We still have 17 km to go before we finish our trek. The heat is still there. Fatigue is less felt. Salay, throughout this trip, shared with us his way of life, his customs, his religion. Unforgettable and captivating moments spent in the midst of beautiful landscapes. All in absolute calm, with the field of birds for accompaniment. We finally arrive at Lake Inle where we have lunch before heading by boat to our destination hotel. How happy ...

Went on the 3D/2N trek from Kalaw to Inle Lake with a group of 4 people and it was amazing! A must-do while in Myanmar! Our brilliant guide Kamel and chef U Taung Yoe made it an unforgettable experience! Kamel is very knowledgeable and a great company! He was always ready to answer our questions and teach us more about the Burmese culture. At the same time he was also interested to know about us, generating an interesting exchange of ideias. In addition, he has a great sense of humor which made the whole trek a lot more fun! Chef U Taung Yoe was also very friendly and kind. The food he prepared was perfect, the best food I had while in Myanmar! He always made sure we had a lot of food available. The trek goes through the countryside and rural villages. In the villages we had the chance to interact with local people and learn about their lifestyle. The contact we had with the locals was genuine and we were always received with joy and smiles. This agency takes a off the beaten path route, so we almost saw no tourists, which was great! I definitely recommend doing this trek with Ko Min and, if you can, with Kamel as your guide. Thank you so much Kamel and U Taung Yoe for these great days I will never forget!

Me and my gf did a 3 days/2 nights trek from Kalaw to Inle lake with Ko Min Kalaw Trekking Service. We were joined by two more persons (the loveliest couple ever) and payed 75$ per person. From start to the end I can only say good things about the experience. The trek is not difficult by any means if you are used to walk. Even so, during steeper sections the guide gives sufficient time to catch your breath. The views of the mountains and farms are splendid, but the best part of this trek is definitely the contact with the local villages. The farmers and villagers we met along the way are some of the nicest people I have met in my life and it was a joy seeing how they live and spend some time with them. The team that accompanied us was absolutely phenomenal. The guide, Kamel, is experienced and always made us feel safe. He shared a lot of insight regarding the burmese culture and is a great person to discuss interesting subjects, such as religion, society and sports. He is a joy to be with and I find great pleasure in calling him a friend after the journey. The (master)chef, U Taung Yoe, is a master of his craft and super friendly. Every meal he made a delicious banquet with a variety of food, taking with immense importance cleanness, as well as our food restrictions. Enjoying his meals and finishing the day sharing a drink with him were for sure highlights of the trek. To conclude, I highly recommend doing the trek with this company and have to thank them for providing us a experience we will never forget.

The best trek we have ever done. We went trekking for 3 days in a group of 3 people from Kalaw to Lake Inle. It was extra easy to book the trek with this agency and they even lended us a backpack. Our big backpacks were transported to Lake Inle directly without any hassle. Our guide, Tay Zar, was the kindest and funniest guide you can imagine. We learned so many things thanks to him ! Our chef was amazing ! He cooked us different dishes every single day and each dish was flavorful and delicious ! A true chef ! We can only recommend this agency and if you can, go with Tay Zar, he is the best. Cheers !

The 3-day trek from Kalaw to Inle was one of the highlights of my trip to Myanmar. It is an easy hike but the landscape is beautiful, with so many colours from the diverse fields on the way. We really didn't see any other tourists on the way and the locals were very friendly to us - I didn't have the feeling that we would bother them with our presence. We enjoyed a lot of fun on the way as well with our co-trekkers from Italy and Spain and our guide Salai. I must also highlight the food - the cook who was coming with us was amazing and always prepared very hearty and delicious dishes with lots of fruits as well. Job well done by this trekking company.
