The trails go on the edge of the mountain up to the Pa O villages of Kyauk Su, Nan Yoke where you may visit some village houses. After nearly 3 hours, you will see the last mountain that flanks the Inle Lake from the western side. That mountain is the hardest part of the trekking forming with the hard rock’s ascending down up to one of the villages on the western shore of the lake called Taung Bo Gyi. Although the trekking part is difficult, the view from the mountain top is awesome and full of joys.
From there, you will be transferred to your hotel in the lake by a small boat propelled with the Chinese-Buffalo, so called because the engine, as its nickname suggests, is so noisy but it is very useful for the farmers.
