Blood-pumping adventure can be found trekking and hiking through Myanmar’s diverse landscapes and breathtaking scenery. Some of the best places for trekking are from Kalaw to the vast Inle Lake, Myanmar’s beautiful Shan state, and up north by Putao. Putao is perfect for adventure-lovers to ski, hike, and mountain bike. Another famous hike is northeast of Mandaly through Hsipaw, renowned for its waterfalls and natural hot springs.
Just a short drive from beautiful Bagan is Mount Popa, which requires a hike up hundreds of stairs to enjoy the gorgeous panoramic view at this ancient volcano’s summit. Some destinations require authorization one month in advance, but most do not have restrictions. Be sure to check with your tour operator.
