Be prepared for a soft adventure day with a lot of activities and impression to experience real Kayin life style. We start the day by small kayaks to go for a leisurely trip by kayaks through the paddy fields for half an hour or so. If you don’t feel like paddling yourself, let us know and we arrange a local Kayin man to paddle for you.
We leave the kayaks behind and continue on foot through the forest visiting Kayin villages for a leisurely walk of about an hour. A great trip to get a feel for the real Kayin life in the jungle. From here we continue on foot (about 1,5 hour) passing several other Kayin villages. A leisurely kayak trip of half an hour brings us to a beautiful traditional local house where a home cooked lunch is being served by the local host.
From here we continue by kayak to our starting point from where we continue to explore the famous Saddan cave.
Attention: as the creeks in this rural part are quite shallow we use small kayaks to travel around which means that you could get wet – slippers, shorts and a t-shirt are recommended. It’s possible to shorten the village walk.
We wants to support local communities and therefore we decide to have the tour accompanied by local people who have limited English skills but love their area and will lead you though their community with pride.
