Kalaw was originally founded by British civil servants seeking to escape the heat of the plains. Today, it is a popular trekking spot with travellers, who come to embrace the soothing landscape and calm atmosphere. The area allows a freedom of movement not afforded in other parts of the country, with the chance to connect with local hill tribes and visit the serene Inle Lake.

For now, enjoy this golden sunset and see how Myanmar should earn a place on every hiker’s bucket list.
