We left busy Yangon for the tranquility of this hill town, as we prepared to start a 3-day hike. We arrived at Kalaw after comfortable night bus. I was able to get a good amount of sleep despite frequent stops throughout the night.
We arrived in Myanmar from Taipei after a layover in the middle of the night in Kuala Lumpur. With only three hours of uncomfortable sleep, I was a bit groggy as I stood in line for immigration.

A ride on a historic Alishan Forest Railway to the beautiful quiet town of Fenqihu, where we found lush green forests all to ourselves.
