    We decided to do this hike after meeting a guide who came from one of the villages and, along with a photographer, had just published a book, some of the women photographed are his relatives, including his mother. Our visit has therefore funded directly through the village. Small boats are hosting 4 people and have colorful curtains to shield the Sun. The trip on the river Lemro is relaxing, the water is turquoise and green along the banks you see villages, orchards and peanut fields. Arrived at the resort was immediately surrounded by children, many and playful. We just went to know the mother of our guide, a beautiful lady proud of her face tattooed. The village is poor but raised huts are fresh and clean, lush nature, women weave fine hand colored wool scarves that are worth buying even to finance the village. The tattoo on the face is banned from the years ' 60, although it was a painful practice, which served to make it less attractive women to other tribes, within the village was seen as an appreciation of beauty. Some elderly women, while I understand that it was no longer right to practice it, have expressed regret for the loss of their traditions. At the end of the tour in the village, we had our lunch, brought from Mrauk U, on a platform on the river and then resumed its way back.
