Inle Lake

Venice of the east, well known for its unique leg rowers, floating gardens, houses built on the water, and the simple life style of the Innthar and Innthu (people of the lake). The beauty of sunset over Inle Lake enchants all visitors. A photographer’s dream, its calm waters are dotted with floating vegetation and fishing canoes, while scenic high hills provide the perfect backdrop.  Don’t miss the lake’s unique “leg rowers” – the Intha people row standing up with one leg wrapped around an oar.

Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the famous and the holiest religious site in southern Shan State rich with traditional handicrafts – silk and lotus weaving on wooden handlooms and a blacksmith. Pass endless floating gardens where tomatoes, fruit and vegetables are grown.

Visit Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries on the lake where one can see ancient Buddha statues, more than 200 years old.

Indein is one of the small villages of Inle Lake located on the western bank of the lake, requiring a 45 minute boat ride to reach. The Indein Pagodas around the hill are cluster of hundreds of ancient stupas, most are ruins overgrown with bushes. This mysterious place is at the end of the marvelous Indein Creek. The creek is narrow with many twist and turns. Mesmerizing views from the pagoda hill will erase the fatigue and refresh everybody who ascends the peak.
