Forget Hsipaw, hike Kyaukme

Lonely Planet will tell you that Hsipaw is where it's at for hiking trails in northern Myanmar. If you have time for days in the jungle, Hsipaw is nice, but for others Kyaukme offers better hiking, and a more realistic timeframe.

Also, the local guide Naing Naing is amazing. Easily the best guide I've had on all my travels through Asia. There is only one hotel in Kyaukme, and they all know how to find him. I believe his email address is naingnaing@gmail.com, if you contact him early, he can fit you in with others and allow you to split costs.
