Without doubt, the most popular outdoor activity in Myanmar is trekking. It provides you with the opportunity to have a feel of the superb landscapes in the country whilst interrelating with the locals; minority ethnic groups in particular. Hiking from Kalaw to Inle Lake continues to be very popular, while other unforgettable treks comprise treks among the hill tribes around Kengtung, walks around Inle Lake, the route from Kalaw to Pindaya and treks into the tea-swathed hills and northern Shan State villages from Hsipaw and Kyaukme. Further north, very difficult treks up into the high Himalaya can be organised from Putao, while ascending Mount Victoria in Chin State provides a true taste of Myanmar well off the beaten track. Unlike trekking, the enormous potential for mountaineering and rock-climbing continues to be nearly completely unexploited.
