Our Favorite Playground: Trekking in the Mountains of Kalaw
I think there’s really nothing quite as wonderful as trekking in the mountains in cool weather, and Kalaw was perfect in December.
We were extremely lucky to have been assigned a real gem of a guide, Kyaw La (pronounced “Jola” or “Chola”), who was a kid magnet and had a lot of awesome tricks up his sleeve. The whole 9-hour hikewas actually little more than just an amazing day of playing and learning about tools, medicines and play things you could make out of whatever you find in the forest.
Yeah, it was pretty amazing —never a dull moment, no complaints, not even of being tired.
If you’re minded to check it out, please do say hi to Kyaw La for me, will you?
