Kalaw in Myanmar was in former British colonial times one of the favourite destinations for British residents and rich Burmese to escape the heat in summer months. The small town, located 1,320 m over the sea level, is only 70 km away from Shan capital Taunggyi. It is now benefitting of a restoration program thanks to local authorities and the support of Kalaw Heritage Hotel management.
The Shan State in Myanmar is mostly known for the serene beauty of Inle Lake. However, Shan State is more than the famed Lake and its incredible landscapes and its colourful traditions. Going from the capital city Taunggyi, Inle Lake is only 40 km away. From Inle Lake or Taunggy, it takes less than two hours to ride up to Kalaw.
