The beautiful town of Kalaw, about 90 minutes from Heho airport is located in the Shan state, in the most traditional inland Myanmar. It is a well known mountain resort, which served as a vacation spot for the British during the colonization period. It is the perfect place for an interesting trekking to meet the ethnic minorities of Palaung and Pao. It is recommended to spend the night in the town, as it is advised to go trekking in the afternoon or at dawn, when it is cooler..
