Become a PaO Person for a Day

Live life for a day as the PaO people in their remote villages on the mountains above scenic Inle Lake.

The Pa O people, the most colorfully dressed tribal people on market day, live remotely in the hills around Inle Lake, Myanmar. Join an invigorating trek uphill to their village monastery to talk to the monks and school children. Lunch served in the village is hearty soup and salads made from their fresh garden produce with visitors getting to don the PaO traditional navy tunic or colourful orange turban–a real photo op! The afternoon return trek passes through plantations of ginger, garlic and turmeric while stopping at superb viewpoints over Inle Lake.
