Eastern Myanmar : Shan and Kayah

The ancient territory of the Shan princes serves as a showcase for a collection of golden Buddhas, hot springs, as well as the Inle lake, cradle of the intha ethnic group.

The Shan state, and its mountainous relief, pecked with lakes and forests, is stretching from the central plains to the border of China, Laos and Thailand.

Thanks to its climate and terroir, wine lovers have successfully started grape growing, with vines now aligned on hillsides, not far from the Inle lake; a frankly surprising landscape, inhabited by the intha, an ethnic group of the region, who lives, grows, and moves on the water, maneuvering the paddle of dugout canoes using their leg.

The region can be reached by hiking from Kalaw, or from Pindaya, for the most athletic tourists. They will then cross hilly fields composing a real patchwork of colors.

More confidential, the site of Kakku, in the south of Taunggyi, worth a visit with its 5257 venerable stupas.

The smaller state of the country, Kayah, is inhabited by 8 different ethnic group, including the Padaung. They owe their reputation to the tradition of women wearing brass spiral necklaces that weigh on their collarbones and eventually lengthen their neck.
