The common way to traverse Myanmar’s famous Inle Lake is by motorboat. Of course this will give a much better experience than just looking at this lake from the shore. To feel the breeze in their face, see the lakeside villagers tending their floating gardens and photograph the iconic Intha leg-rowing fishermen, your guest must definitely embark by boat to properly experience Inle Lake. Recently, the indigenous population dwelling nearby have been as much surprised as visitors, plus became somewhat curious to see foreigners navigating their own kayaks in the lake.

Khiri Travel Myanmar’s new innovative kayaking tour through rural Shan villages promises an exciting day filled with activities and a truly local experience. The kayaks can enter Inle Lake by the canal or small side stream that connects Shwenyaung to Nyaungshwe. This canal offers one of the best “off the beaten track” experiences one can find in the lake area.
