Kalaw to Inle Lake, just a great week !!!!

Je quitte donc la région de Bagan avec un mini van direction Kalaw, ce qui devrait prendre environ 6h .... Tout se passe bien pendant environ 4h et là, un boom sur le côté de ma portière, j'ai à peine eu le temps de voir ce que c'était (je regardais une série) : c'était un scooter qui a tape le côté du mini van.... D'après ce que m'ont dit les autres personnes du mini-van, la personne était très mal en point voir peut être morte ... C'est pas le premier accident impliquant un scooter que je vois en Birmanie mais le premier ou une personne est gravement blessé voire plus .... Un bus s'est arrêté devant notre mini-van et des passagers du mini-van sont allés demandés s'il y avait de la place pour nous tous, et c'était le cas.... Ca fait un peu "partir comme des voleurs" mais on aurait rien fait de plus et on aurait ptre été bloqué pendant plusieurs heures....

 

So I'm leaving Bagan area with a mini-van, heading to Kalaw which is about 6 hours drive... Everything is fine until 4h after departure when I heard a boom on my door, and I just see quickly what it was (I was watching a serie): it was a scooter which hit the side door of the van... People from the mini-van told me, the guy was badly injured and may be even dead ... It's not the first scooter accident I see in Myanmar but with injured or dead people , it was. A bus stopped in front of our mini-van and some passengers of the mini-van asked them if they would have space for all of us, which was the case ... It felt we left like we did a robery but there was nothing we could have done and we might have been stuck there for hours....

On va repartir sur quelque chose d'un peu plus joyeux .... Durant cet évènement, je rencontre Nicolas, picard habitant à Paris, avec qui je vais réserver le trek Kalaw / Inle lake, car c'est pour cela que les touristes viennent à Kalaw, pour faire ce trek de 3jours et 2 nuits.

C'est donc parti pour un trek de 61km sur 3 jours dans les collines entre Kalaw et Inle lake. Notre groupe est composé de notre guide (Kiken), de 5 Français ( Matthieu, Elsa, Nicolas, Charlotte et moi), deux Espagnoles (Patricia et Abi) et d'un Brésilien (Igor, je sais ça fait pas Brésilien mais sa grand-mère était russe).

La marche s'effectue au milieu des rizières, pour le moment en jachère en attendant la saison des pluies qui arrivent en juin, sur une voie ferrée, dans les collines et villages.

 

Let's talk about more joyful stuff... During this event, I met Nicolas, Picard living in Paris, with whom I'll book the trek from Kalaw to Inle lake, that's why the tourists come to Kalaw, starting point of the 3D2N trek.

Here we go for a 61k trek in 3 days in the middle of the Hills between Kalaw and Inle Lake. Our group is composed of our guide (Kiken), 5 French ( Matthieu, Elsa, Nicolas, Charlotte and Me), 2 Spanish (Patricia and Abi) and 1 Brasilian (Igor,  I know it doesn't sound Brasilian but his grand mother was russian)

The walk went through rice field terraces, for now quite yellow it will be green during the raining season in june, rail track, hills and villages.

On arrive dans le premier village pour notre première nuit chez l'habitant... GENIAL !!! La vidéo ci-dessous vous montre la maison de nos hôtes. En premier, la citerne en béton est donc la douche et en fin de vidéo, c'est notre chambre... La vidéo ne montre pas les buffles qui dorment en-dessous de notre chambre. Superbe soirée avec le groupe autour du repas gargantuesque !!!

Mais en attendant notre repas, nous jouons au jeu que Nico nous a appris : le Killer et en nous entendant rire, les enfants sont tous venus nous regarder jouer !!

 

We arrived in our first village for our first homestay night.... AMAZING !!! The video will show you our homestay . First you'll see the shower, the cement tank, and at the end it's our room... But what the video does not show is that the Buffalos sleep under our room. Great evening with the group with a huge dinner !!!

But while we were waiting for our dinner, we played the Killer game, a dice game Nicolas taught us... We were laughing so loud that the children came to watch us playing !!!

Le deuxième jour même principe que le premier mais avec baignade dans la rivière et Kiken nous a prévenu qu'il valait mieux se baigner/laver ici car ou on va dormir il n'y a pas beaucoup d'eau !!! Donc c'est parti, tout le monde à l'eau et avec le 2éme groupe de la même compagnie (important pour plus tard)

 

The second day is the same as the first except we took a bath in the river and Kiken told us that we better be having this bath because there is not much water where we stay  !!! So everybody in the river even with the other group from the trek company (important for later )

Last day, heading to the lake where a boat is waiting to take us to the city, around 1h boat ride ...

Mais pendant ce trek on a rencontré des personnes qui te sourient, les enfants qui te font coucou et te disent bonjour !!! Nicolas qui joue au Chinlon, jeu de balle en osier.  Quelques photos de ces personnes ci-dessous.

 

But during this trek, we met people who smile at you, children waving at you and saying hello !!! Nicolas played Chinlon, the local ball game. Few pictures of these people below.

Nous voilà donc arrivé après 3 jours de marche à Inle Lake...

On vient à Inle lake pour plusieurs raisons : la première c'est la fin du trek mais surtout pour les fameux pêcheurs acrobates.

Je passerais les 3 prochains jours avec quasiment tout le groupe de marche (sauf Matthieu et Elsa qui se sont réservés un hôtel sur les bords du lac).

Au programme : Dégustation de vin avec couché du soleil, tour en bateau sur le lac et partie de Killer le soir autour de Mohito (c'était écrit comme ça sur le menu).

Durant la dégustation de vin nous rencontrons les Canadiens, italiens et Français du 2éme groupe ( ceux avec qui on s'est baigné) et que nous retrouverons plus tard au restaurant autour de mohito et d'une partie de Killer.  Au total, une tablée de 12 personnes !!

 

Finally, we arrived in Inle Lake after 3 walking days...

You come to Inle Lake for few reasons: the first one is this is the end of the trek but mainly to see the acrobat fishermen !!!

I'm gonna spent the next 3 days with my trek group except Matthieu and Elsa (they booked a nice hotel on the lake side).

Planning : Wine tasting with Sunset, Boat tour around the lake and Killer game with Mohito (written like this on the menu)

We met at the wine tasting some of the second group there ( the one from the river)and we'll meet again at the restaurant for few mohitos and Killer game. ( 12 people !!!)
