One of Myanmar’s spectacular sight, Inle Lake is surrounded by the green mountain ranges and overlooks the misty Shan Mountains at 900 metres above sea level. It is the home of the Intha people, who have adapted their environment by building entire villages rising on stilts from the shallow waters. Lake dwellers grow an array of flowers and vegetables in picturesque floating gardens and fields, tended by workers in canoes. They have become famous for their unique one-leg rowing technique.
You will find the serenely water-bound temples, shore-bound markets, traditional handicraft workshops and the unique way of life of the tribal people around the lake, with their functioning communities based entirely on the water.
