Kayin State - view during kayaking

The remoter parts of Mon State and Kayin State are undiscovered areas of Myanmar offering spectacular nature and intriguing tribal culture dating back many centuries in Southeast Asian history.

The Mon are believed to be one of the first civilizations in this part of the world. Although their kingdom was lost to the Bagan king in the 11th century, their rich culture can still be seen in daily life. Specific sarongs, traditional food, language and music instruments are testament to a distinctive history.

The Kayin (also known as Karen or Kachin) are one of the indigenous tribes of the jungle known for their traditional boxing skills. The Kayin homeland offers beautiful natural scenes with traditional villages and waterways surrounded by spectacular limestone mountains. The Kayin are a people with a separate language and traditions, whose origins are still very much unknown to historians.
