“Fantastic trekking company and experience!”

Mister Min Min's Trekking Tours
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

I would absolutely recommend Mr Min Min treks.

From the moment you email Sivah (Mr Min Min) you know are dealing with a friendly, local professional. For starters, you will get a speedy and informative response to any emails and questions, and from then on it only gets better!

It soon became obvious that Sivah is an excellent and experienced guide - you are in safe hands. Sivah gave us a detailed explanation of the route we would follow (he even allowed us to keep the map he used to illustrate the path), he also mentioned that he had 9 years experience of guiding tourists in the Shan region. He ran through what the accommodation would entail and also tribes and scenery you will encounter. Throughout the trek Sivah pointed out cultural nuances, animals, plants, agricultural processes, and answers any further questions you may have about the area. He even picked a few local delicacies for us to try along the way.

The chosen accommodation is comfortable, friendly and authentic. Topping this, Sivah has an excellent rapport with the local tribes and can speak their languages, so he could involve us in the cooking of local dishes. The food was AMAZING! You will not go hungry! It was lovely that Sivah joined us for post trekking beers when we discussed topics from puppies to football and one another’s culture.

The boat trip included at the end of the trek is a lovely and relaxing way to finish. We toured traditional sites around Inle Lake, such as a silver merchant and women with long necks.

Overall the days past too quickly and our trek was a real highlight of our trip to Myanmar - this is largely down to Sivah. Sivan’s trek is excellent value for money.

Just finished the 3 day trek with Min Min and let me say it was the best decision I’ve made in Myanmar. Min Min is kind, funny, generous, and knowledgeable. He told us so much about the tribal villages, Myanmar culture and customs, and some great stories of his life. He cooked us some incredible meals and made us feel so comfortable throughout the trek, allowing us to stop whenever we were tired. He makes everyone laugh and we could tell immediately that he was well respected in the communities. I cannot stress enough how amazing it was to do a private tour with him. With other companies, there are huge groups that aren’t nearly as personable and unique. Every time we saw a big group, he would lead us the “local way”. Don’t even think twice. Thank you Min Min for a truly remarkable journey and experience. We will miss your humor and amazing voice.

We have done the two day trek with Mr. Min Min and we can only recommend his services. He is an amazing, always smiling guide with a great knowledge of the countryside and Myanmar. His English is good so we had many nice conversations and he was also a good singer :) Since we were only two, we had a room in farmer's house just for ourselves and avoided the big groups of Eversmile trekking as much as possible.
If you are looking for a genuine local experience, very friendly guide with superb expertise, look no further.

We first selected Mr Min Min’s trekking tour because of the price, but we became extremely happy once we met him and began the hike. He was informative, knowledgeable and always went the extra mile to ensure we felt comfortable and happy. My girlfriends birthday happened to fall on the second day of our hike and with the help of Mr Min Min, it became one of her beat birthdays. He graciously called the hotel we were staying at that night in Inle Lake and arranged to have flowers, wine, a birthday cake and a nice flower pedal message on our bed waiting for her in our room as a surprise. He always went the extra mile and would recommend him and his company to anybody!
