Overview

Hi i am Joy, i am a local English teacher and tour guide. I specialize in motorbike combination trekking in Shan and Palaung villages around the Kyaukme area. Tours can range from 1 to 5 days and can be tailored to your interests. Trekking usually involves village hopping up in the mountains, interacting with locals and learning about their culture and way of life.
