IMG guide Jenni Fogle reports by sat phone that the team is making good progress on their three day overland trek to Inle Lake. They have been weaving through the forests, farms, and many little villages along the way. Yesterday they started in Kalaw and trekked to Tar Yaw and then after lunch they pushed on to Ywa Pu. All total it was about 10 miles of hiking with an average altitude of about 5000 feet, and they spent the night in a house at the Ywa Pu village. Today they have another good chunk of trekking to do, going first to Kone Hla and then on to then Hti Thein for an overnight stay at a local monastery. Then, tomorrow they will do a third day of trekking to Nan Yoke and on to Inle Lake. Jenni said everyone was doing well and that they are having a great time. So far so good!
