Danu Trails is a network of trekking routes in the Danu Zone of Shan State, not far from Inle Lake. Visitors can base themselves in the attractive town of Pindaya, famous for its limestone caves. There are 20 different trails mapped out in the Danu Zone, ranging from light half-day treks to two and three day treks where you will sleep in monasteries overnight.
The treks are more challenging, and less touristy, than the Kalaw to Inle Lake trail. The routes take you across beautiful and rugged countryside and through a range of different tribal villages, including Pa’o, Danu and Palaung. Your trek is guided by a local from the Danu area and local people are also involved as cooks and porters. You will have the chance to enjoy local cuisine in private homes in the villages along the route.
Danu Trails provides a unique and authentic trekking experience that engages you with local communities. For more information and for bookings visit the Danu Trails website.
