Khone Lwin Village Monastery ,
Info : Khone Lwin Village Monastery
Just a short distance from the Khone Lwin Village lies the peaceful local monastery, kindly offering overnight accommodation to visitors passing through. Staying in a local monastery is a unique experience and certainly not one you’ll forget in a hurry. The accommodation here is quite basic and the facilities are shared.
The Da-Nu hill tribes that still live in this cavernous region of Kalaw have ancestors who were archers in the 16th century. Nowadays they are mostly farmers, and if you come across them in your travels you are likely to see them in Burmese costume. As you wander through the region, you can spot herds of water buffalo and pass through cornfields, pine forests, rice paddies and vegetable farms.
If you are trekking through this hilly and fascinating region of rural Myanmar, then you’re probably already committed to witnessing and being a part of a simpler way of life. It’s certainly worth letting go of luxury expectations while in the Kalaw region purely for the cultural and religious insights gained from this once-in-a-lifetime experience of staying at the monastery.

[Our cruise] was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Terry our guide made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend [it] more highly, perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life.
