things to do at Myanmar - kayaking - kayin - signature experience

Kayaking through flooded rice paddies and hiking along quite jungle trails, this soft adventure tour takes you on a remarkable journey to experience rural life with the Kayin ethnic minority people.

Join us on a soft adventure tour to learn about the lifestyle of the Kayin people, a national minority group in Myanmar. Also known as the Karen, these people from Kayin State are mostly subsistence farmers that live in small mountain villages where they grow rice, vegetables and raise animals.

Paddling in kayaks through the flooded rice fields of the Kayin, we pass through some stunning scenery, before continuing on foot along jungle trails to visit their modest homes in a local Kayin village.

We then take a leisurely walk along a Kayin jungle path to another isolated village where we stop at a traditionally built house and enjoy an authentic home cooked meal served by the family of the house.

After eating our fill, we return to the kayaks and paddle off to explore a beautiful Buddhist grotto located inside the famous Saddar Cave in the district of Hpa-an. The entrance to the cave is marked by two impressive elephant statues, golden frescoes and Buddha figures.
