This well-known trek is one of the most popular touristic things to do in Myanmar. Though it isn’t particularly challenging (unlike some other treks we’ve done – Havasupai and Annapurna, to name a few), it is a fantastic way to be immersed in the nature and culture of northern Myanmar.

Got off our night bus from Yangon at 3am, found our guest house, which was kind enough to wait up for us, and passed out immediately. For anyone visiting Hpa-An, I HIGHLY recommend The Galaxy Motel.

March 30-April 1, 2015: Havasupai Falls

A long time ago, two Israeli Couchsurfers were staying at our house in San Diego and telling us about their travels. They told us about a magical oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert that you can only get to by hiking 10 miles into the Grand Canyon. They said it was by the far the most beautiful place either of them had ever been. Continue reading
