素晴らしい体験
2020년 2월 • 개인
ガイドさんをお願いして山岳民族に会いに行ってきました。
チャイントンの市場でお昼ご飯のヌードルを購入。車で40分ほど走り麓の村からトレッキングスタート。
林の中を抜け赤茶けた山肌を登って行くと小さな村が見えてきました。
いち早く私を見つけた子供達が走って降りて来たりとても嬉しいお出迎えです。
でもそれは手に持った手工芸品の販売
一つ$1です、それでお互い気持ち関係になれるなら良いと思います。
村の中は素晴らしい光景。それぞれの部族でそれぞれの生活スタイル、衣装、信心があり興味深い体験ができました。

ミャンマー旅行のハイライト!
2020년 1월
3回目のミャンマー旅行でパゴタより多様な人種、文化に目を向けた山岳民族の暮らしにお邪魔する個人ツアーに参加しました。ガイドさんはホテルの方に紹介していただき、一人旅だったのでガイドさんのバイクで2日に渡りルート1、ルート2の地域で5つの民族の村にお邪魔し、大変貴重な体験が出来ました。各村にお邪魔するために朝方、チャイントンのマーケットでお土産として薬とお菓子、自分用にランチに食べる食料を購入してから各村に向かう習わしがあるみたいです。また現地でも各、民族の方々が日頃作っている刺繍などの服飾品の購入を迫られる場面に遭遇するはずですが、値段的には他の地域より安価でベーシックな色物が多いので、出来たら、他の町より現地で御土産に買うつもりで訪れると良くと、ウィンウィンにツアーを楽しめます。ランチは何処かのお家を間借りして頂きます。電気も学校もないという情報もありましたが、最近は学校も出来、山からの水力発電で多少の電気はありました。時代とともに暮らしは変わります。それでも自然と共存して独自の言語や文化、種を守って暮らしている民族の方々に敬意を持って楽しい旅にして下さい。

Trekking into tradition
2019년 12월 • 친구
If you love trekking and want an authentic experience of ethnic diversity in Myanmar then visiting the villages in the hills of Kengtung should definitely feature on your itinerary.
The key to this is no doubt the guide and we were in excellent hands with the person who led us on our trail. He was able to help us engage with the people we met without us feeling like we were intruding on village life. We drank tea, tried on traditional costumes, laughed together and bought many bracelets and beads from the local people, who were always welcoming and genuine in their response to us.
We came away feeling truly grateful for the opportunity to spend time with, and learn from these amazing people.

Best place to visit Hill tribes in Myanmar - some practical info
2019년 11월 • 커플
If you like to visit Hill tribe villages, the Kengtung area is the best place to visit in Myanmar, as the surrounding hills are home to the biggest variety of different ethnic tribes in Myanmar, while tourism is still quite low key. Several (sub)tribes of Akha, Lahu, Eng, Ann, Shan and Palaung can be found in a relatively small area. They have moved to this relatively safe area from the area where they were originally living because of ongoing ethnic conflicts. Other hill tribe (trekking) areas such as Loikaw and Chin state offer less variation and popular trekking areas such as Kalaw and Hsipaw offer no traditional hill tribes at all.

You can reach Kengtung in three hours by road from Taichileik at the Thai border (2 hours from Chianti’s Rai). The road from Taungghi is only accessible with a permit, which is a difficult, lengthy process to obtain and not recommended, so from within Myanmar its best to fly from/to Yangon, Heho (near Inle Lake) or Mandalay.

Most of the villages are still relatively unspoiled, but do not expect them to be completely untouched by tourism. Some villages have kept their traditional houses, others have developed more and have (partly) changed the traditional style to a more modern (brick or concrete) home. The same applies for the traditional costumes. There are villages in the area (further away from Kengtung) which are still completely off the grid, untouched and authentic, but at the time of writing it was not possible to visit them, as there is civil unrest in the area. The best time for trekking is supposed to be the end of September, beginning of October, because dry season has started but the rice paddies are still green. We liked November / December as it is not too hot. Note that you are not allowed to drive a motorbike yourself. In theory, you could arrange a motorbike taxi to most of the villages if you do not like trekking, but the “roads” are bad and a you would miss part of the experience without a guide introducing you to shy local people and translating for you, so I would recommend hiring a guide with car and driver.

We arranged a guide, last minute, the evening before our first daytrip. Our hotel (Amazing Kengtung Resort) called Francis, who came to our hotel and we arranged everything with him directly (I assume all hotels will be able to call a decent guide. We also tried to arrange a guide through the Princess hotel, but communication was very difficult and they charged more than dealing with the guide directly). Francis explained us the different options we have (more or less 5 different trips, mostly full day trip, but some can be done in half a day, see the trekking map I uploaded).

The first day we did the Pin Tauk trek, where we started our day with a visit to the local market to buy water, lunch and gifts. After that we visited 5 different villages. It is supposed to be the most touristy trek, but apart from some women selling handicraft (without too much pushing to buy it) it felt rather authentic and we did not see a single tourist all day. If you only have one day, do this trek. It only involves several short treks, not too difficult. Frances is an experienced, reliable, knowledgeable guide, who knows the local people and speaks the local languages. We were invited in several homes to drink tea, take pictures and interact with the locals. It was sometimes difficult to understand his explanation if it involved more complex matters, but his English is good enough for most interactions. He tries to minimize the negative impact of tourist visiting by teaching the locals not to ask for gifts or take it for granted.

The second day we visited the Lahu Shi village. It is sold as a strenuous three hour walk, but we did it in 1.45 hrs uphill on a small road. With the relatively cool air, walking in the shade for a large part of the trek, I found it only moderately difficult. We were accompanied by another guide, Sái, a young part time guide, who was also very good (Frances was not available). He speaks English very well. The Lahu Shi village is the most poor and basic village we visited but it is very beautiful. The Lahu Shi dress is basic as well and not as refined as the other tribes and they people are shy. We also visited a Wa village, where we could see some original mud houses and a Palaung Village with women with traditional clothing. These villages are bit more modern and therefor less visited. Children were running away because there were scared of two big white men visiting their village.

A good half day trip is the one to Wan Sai. It involves more driving and little trekking and includes a visit to the Akhe (with pipe smoking women) and a Buddhist monastery.

Count on 75-80USD for a full day trip, 55USD for half a day, including the car/driver.

Last, but not least: if you visit the villages, some gifts are appreciated, which brings in my opinion a dilemma as children start associating tourist with cookies. Our guide explained that the cookie giving is also because otherwise the kids are scared and run away, so giving a cookie invites for interaction. As the cookies are wrapped in plastic, and plastic waste is all over the place - becoming a problem - we saw two different approaches: Giving the cookie including the plastic with the guide learning them to dispose of it responsibly, the second option is to unwrap it yourself, give the cookie and take the plastic with you. I preferred the latter, as there is no waste system anyway... as for the gifts for the adults, your guide will be able to tell you what they need (shampoo, medicines, detergent etc). Try to bring something sustainable, limit plastic waste and do not bring clothing as it will ruin their culture.

Hope this helps planning your trip. Enjoy!

Best guide in Kengtung
2019년 9월
Hello everybody, I visited Myanmar and KengTung last September. I would like to strongly recommend Tao as guide there (09459154947 is his phone number, but you can even find him on facebook, search for Keng Tong Trip) . He comes from the Wa ethnic group. He can speak very good english, he is super kind and will do everything to let you know as more as possible about the tribe culture around the area. We even had the opportunity to spend a full day with him and his family at his home, to cook a local lunch with him and deeply understand plenty of interesting things about their culture.
Enjoy Myanmar and KengTung, it is still unspoiled if compared with others South East Asia destinations, really worth a visit!

Up close and personal visits to hill tribes with Francis
2019년 3월 • 개인
A short TripAdvisor review can never do justice to the experience I had with my guide Francis when visiting the hill tribes around Kyaingtong by motorbike and on foot (up to a total of a few hours of hiking per day) three weeks ago. I am fairly well travelled, having visited about 60 countries and seen and experienced many extraordinary places in the course of the past 30+ years. And the hill tribe visits went straight to my top 5 most memorable travel experiences ever. They certainly were the highlight of my 16-day trip to Myanmar.

Francis and I visited nine different tribes in the course of three days, the furthest of them a relatively remote Lahu Shi tribe. I did not see any other tourists in any of the villages. We also had memorable encounters with various other tribe members (including Loi women) in our morning visits to the Kyaingtong market.

If you want a guide that can interact with all the tribes in multiple languages and dialects (lahu, akha, shan), go with Francis. He is reliable and punctual, speaks good English, and listens to your preferences but also has his own suggestions. Most importantly, he has a good relationship (or can form one) with the tribe members due to his own background. Francis can be reached at sai.francis2012@gmail.com.

Visita piacevole e necessaria altrimenti il Myanmar è incompleto
2019년 1월 • 친구
Abbiamo pranzato al sacco nella scuola del villaggio. Intanto le maestre e i bambini giocavano nel piazzale.Villaggi di varie etnie si trovano nelle montagne attorno alla città. Uno diverso dall' altro, ma tutti gentili , sorridenti, belli, e con pochissime parole di inglese

The best Keng Tung trekking - Ann, Akha, Lahu village trek.
2019년 1월 • 커플
We booked a 1 day trek through Harry's trekking and adventure and we met our tour guide, Shaan, who was a good friend of the late Harry. Shaan, speaks 6 different languages and can speak English very well. He has established a close relationship with the tribes in the mountains through the many years he has been visiting them with tourists, which is what made our experience extra special. He asked without any pressurising whatsoever whether we wanted to buy sweets and balloons for the village children, we agreed to and it was one of the most beautiful things to see the smiles on the children's faces when we gave them the little treats. The Ann village tribe welcomed us into their homes and fed us their traditional meals, showed us their traditional outfits and were happy to talk to us, via our guide Shaan who was translating. Throughout the day we visited 4 villages and Shaan took us to the most amazing view points, we also went to a rice whisky manufacturing site and the hot springs. Along the way we stopped over at the rice fields and Shaan explained to us in detail the whole process. Me and my wife feel lucky to have booked our trekking with Shaan, the value for money is incredible. It was the best trekking experience ever! You can contact him directly or ask your accommodation to call him, his number: +95 9 253 595 672

Die Wanderungen zu den Bergvölkern ist ein Muss !
2018년 12월 • 커플
Schöne Wanderungen zu den Bergvölkern (mit Führer). Der Tourismus steckt hier noch in den Kinderschuhen und das ist beinahe unbezahlbar.
Man kann diverse kleine Orte besuchen ohne das man angebettelt wird. Es wird auch nichts an die Besucher verkauft !
Jetzt ansehen, denn in wenigen Jahren wird sich hier viel ändern.

#vigiliaDiNatale #24dicembre #kengTong #birmania #trekking
[oggi finiamo la scoperta di una delle parti più remote della Birmania, la ragione della città di Keng Tong, aperta al turismo solo dal 2012. Passeggiando per i per i paesi di montagna e comunità agricole, scoprendo le loro diverse etnie dove non so se fossimo più curiosi noi di loro o loro di queste quattro strane persone con vestiti (noi) così strani, capisci ad un certo punto che c'è un linguaggio universale fatto di cortesia, sorrisi e gentilezza, occhi e linguaggio del corpo che ti permette di interagire e capirti con chiunwue nel mondo.

Abbiamo visitato case che ci sono state aperte con massima cortesia, assaggiato i loro te e tutto quello che ci veniva offerto.
Abbiamo poi trovato scuole dove i più piccoli vengono formati al domani (hanno usato queste due meravigliose parole) con insegnanti che provengono dalla capitale.
Abbiamo visitato un orfanotrofio ctistiano gestito da 4 suore con ben 93 bambine che ci ha raccontato come oggi fosse il giorno di più grande gioia per i loro piccoli.
Abbiamo visto la quotidianità ed in essa tante più cose che in un giorno da noi a casa]
