Loikaw Cultural Discovery

Yangon (or Inle Lake) - Loikaw

Soft
Adventure
DESCRIPTION

More of a pretty, frontier country town than a state capital, it's just a short, direct flight from Yangon to Loikaw. With some 9 different ethnic groups living in the area, exploring here takes us back in time to a by-gone era of colorful culture, simple living, and Animist rituals. Explore the area with your personal guide, by transport and/or soft trekking. It's picturesque, accessible, completely off-the-map and a 'Soft Adventure' thanks to comfortable sleep in town each night.

Several times weekly the remainder of the year
