“Enjoy authentic village life and warm hospitality in this great trekking night stop.”

Charlotte Bower, Travel Consultant

Htee Thein, a small village in the hills of Shan State, is a popular overnight stopping place for those trekking between Kalaw and Inle Lake. Facilities in the village are basic, as one would expect in such a remote location, but the welcome is warm and staying overnight in the local monastery is a memorable experience.
