Inlay Lake

At 875 metres above sea level, Inlay Lake is surrounded by high hills, which keep the waters calm and the lake area misty. 22 km long and 11 km wide, Inle Lake is home to 70,000 Bamar, Danaw, Danu, Intha, Kayah, Pa-O, Shan, and Taung-yo peoples, among others - roughly half of the area's population. The water is covered with floating gardens and busy fishing canoes.
One of the two natural big lakes in Myanmar, Inle is situated on the Nyaung Shwe plain in Southern Shan State. It is an uphill lake and the commonest tour destination in Eastern Shan plateau. The leg-rowing style of the inhabitants is so stylistic and breathtaking. Then, The colourful ethnical tribes at market place, the traditional costumes at pagoda festivals and the ceremonies always reveal the incredible beauty of this lake.

The most famous are the Paungdawoo pagoda festival that lasts 3 weeks between September and October and the traditional regatta contest. Handicrafts of Shan clothes, bags, and silverwares will be on your souvenir-shopping list.
