Overview
More
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!
