    I am very impressed that MAO is doing this. They have an admirable goal! Travelers can really make a positive impact in an entire community. I hope that the locals will choose to stay and have a decent living. I would be eager to book a tour with MAO.

      Absolutely, and it’s so refreshing to support a business that is about people and not profits!

    Wow, I’d never heard of this place before and it is such an amazing location! I must commend you for your effort to combine adventure with a social cause.

    Also I must ask, how did you click that aerial view of the fall? drones?

    It’s always great to hear about the lesser known travel destinations. Also, it is a good reminder of just how fortunate I am and how difficult so many people around the world have it. It seems many times the more difficult people lives are, the friendlier they are. Also, love the night time photo.

    Your selection of adventurous trip to dark horse falls is marvellous. Also the itinerary is helpful with all timings and what to do and what not. Many blogs don’t recommend best time to visit but that is also mentioned in your blog. Lashio falls is beautiful and i like your slow shutter speed photography. I am trying to develop this with my photography.

    Sounds like you found a truly wonderful company in MAO. I wish them all the best. It so wonderful how they are taking the time to invest in the local community. Building roads, trash removal, education and most of all sustainable jobs. I would be proud to take a tour like that.

    Whoa! I didn’t know this side of Myanmar. My knowledge of Myanmar was limited to the temples of Bagan. But I didn’t know there is so much to do for adventurous travelers. Those rural scenes look so much like India’s rural places.
