We explored the surroundings of Hsipow with Ko Oo and discovered interesting aspects of the local life of many villagers. We recommend this activity.

We took an overnight trek with Sai Sai. He is a great guide with excellent knowledge of the local area and also the history of Myanmar. The trek is through beautiful mountains and staying in lovely local villages. By far the best thing we have done in Myanmar!

So far, I am totally satisfied with the decision to take 2 days 1 night trek in Hsipaw. Nice mountain, very good guide, Jon Kaung Khant, a very young but experienced guide. Cozy homestay, very delicious food and the peaceful village - Pan Kham Village. For me, this is the highlight of the trip to Myanmar.

During my visit to Myanmar, I decided to add in a hike into my three-week itinerary. I arranged the trip with The North Trek through their facebook where I was able to join with other hikers. This was my first time trekking in Myanmar and it was absolutely awesome. The highlight of my trip would be the local homestay. When we got to the village, we were greeted by an old lady dressed in full Palaung traditional dress. Lunch and dinner were served in the main room of our host family’s three-room house. During our first meal, we learned from our host about weaving the traditional clothes by the open window. At night, we sat by an open fire drinking tea. After a long day's walk, having a warm house to lay down at night gave me a deeper appreciation of shelter. This was so unique to anything I’ve ever done before.

We contacted them through Facebook and got a speedy response.We met our guide, Sai Sai the day before our trip and he briefed us about the options, and started our trek the next day. After 17 kilometres later we arrived at Pankam Village by walking through green tea plantation, corn fields, and paddy fields. We also had the waterfall to all ourselves. I personally loved it. The local host provided us with garden grown fresh vegetables dishes.  Lunch and dinner were both served in the host family’s three-room house. Sitting by an open fire sipping a hot cup of tea learning about Palaung culture is one of my fondest trekking memories. After a good night’s rest, we returned  back to Hsipaw along a different route and the walk back into town was much easier. We passed a few small villages and a handful of traders and farmers on their daily commutes – but still no other tourists.
