Inle Lake & Around

Inle Lake

It located in the Southern part of the Shan State. This vast picturesque lake, 2900 feet above sea-level and surround it with blue mist-shrouded mountains, you will really get an exquisitely beautiful, romantic place. It is one of the main tourist attractions in Myanmar. The lake, 22 km long and 10 km across, has a population of some 80,000, many of whom live on floating islands of vegetation. Inle Lake, natural and unpolluted, is famous for its scenic beauty and the unique leg-rowing of the Inthas, the native lake dwellers. There are 64 villages in the lake. A place we cannot miss in our itinerary is this scenic beauty of Inle Lake. So, at least a one-night or two-nights stay is strongly recommended. A second night is required for those with time; extra nights allow for visits and trek to Inle Lake and Kalaw surrounding. Inle is also famous for the Phaungdawoo Festival which is held in September/ October each year. The most convenient way is to fly from Yangon to Heho, which is the nearest airport to the lake. There are daily flights to Heho from Yangon which take about one hour. The flight from Mandalay to Heho takes only 20 minutes. Traveling by car along the uphill and winding road over the Shan Plateau, thought taking about 6 hours is interesting and well-worth taking. There is also a regular train service via. From Thazi Junction to Heho and Shwenyaung is the nearest station to the Lake.
