Kalaw holidays

Kalaw is a former British hill station located on the Shan Plateau in Taunggyi District approximately 2 hours from Inle Lake and 1 hour from Heho airport. The town sits at 1,300 metres above sea level and enjoys a cooler climate; its population is a mix of Burmese, Pa-O, Palaung, Intha and Shan minorities as well as Indian and Nepalese descendents of soldiers that followed the British here. Kalaw is an ideal base for trekking to ethnic minority villages in the hills surrounding the town.
