DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Putao

DAY 2: Putao

Embark on a full-day hike to grasp what the daily lives of Lisu, Rewang and Shan villagers are like.

DAY 4: Putao

Early birds can come out and taste the traditional steaming bowls of Shan noodles, shop for woven hats and baskets in Rewang Village before embarking to Mulashidi village, a perfect place to learn about the culture and traditions in Putao.
