“Trekking is also about the art of improvisation”

Trekking in mountainous Shan State entails an informal exchange of challenges and rewards. One minute you may find yourself struggling up a steep hill but the next minute you are standing on top of the mountain enjoying an awe-inspiring vista across endless green hills or sharing a traditional meal with hospitable locals.
