Inle Lake is about 1300 metres above sea-level and 22 km long and 10 km wide. Natural and unpolluted, Inle Lake is famous for its scenic beauty and the unique leg-rowing of the Inthas, the native lake dwellers. As the only mode of transportation is boats and motorboats, Inle Lake is figuratively named the “Venice of the East”.

Explore Ming Tauk, a bustling market with an authentic local atmosphere with variety of indigenous products from Inle Lake. The Nga Phe Chaung Monastery, supported by 654 teak pillars, is also known as the “Jumping Cat Monastery” because the resident monks have trained their cats to leap through hoops. Housing five sacred Buddha Images, Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda is also famous for the 19-days festival which is usually held at the lake every October at the end of Buddhist Lent. Ascend the covered stairways to the hilltop Shew Indein Pagoda dotted with hundreds of ancient stupas. To gain insight into local cultures and livelihoods, visit some of the silverware or silk weaving craftshops.  Enjoy a sunset canoe ride and take in the beautiful sights of Inle Lake.
