Myanmar: A Day on the Lake!

September 29, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

17 Inle Lake 2

Inle Lake in southern Shan State is a vast natural lake surrounded by traditional Shan villages. On the lake itself the Intha people have been living for many centuries in villages built entirely on stilts on the lake.

A Khiri Travel Myanmar guide takes travelers by private motorboat around the lake to discover the natural beauty of the lake, visit the floating gardens, see some of the famous leg rowers and have some tea at a local family’s house.

990 Pa O

On and around the lake traditional markets are held in different villages according to a 5-day rotating schedule and today we will take you to visit a colorful; market frequented by Shan and Pa’O people living nearby.

We will certainly also visit a local cheroot factory (where the Burmese cigars are made), floating tomato gardens, Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, Intha Heritage house where the Burmese cats are bred and for those who are interested, we visit a weaving factory.
