In western Shan State, you will find picturesque Inle Lake, famous for its floating villages and gardens and the unique way of life of the local Intha people, with their living communities based entirely on the water.
The lake, which measures 22 km long by 10 km wide, and sits in a valley between two mountain ranges, feels like a different world to the rest of Myanmar
In villages and towns across the lake, wooden houses are built on stilts and fishermen steer their boats with a characteristic leg rowing style
Board a traditional longboat and set off on your two day adventure across Inle Lake
Inle Lake is one of Myanmar’s most tranquil and idyllic spots, making it one of our favourites. Sit back, relax and enjoy your new pace of life for two days
We will travel all the way to Samka, the far southern region of Inle Lake. Very few tourists make the trip down to this region yet it is one of the most beautiful places in the Shan State with the mountains forming a backdrop for the small villages and fishermen on the water
