Inle Lake

Inle Lake, a part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the lake measuring 22 km long by 10 km wide, and sitting 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 high on stilts and fishermen steer their one-man boats with a unique rowing style, wrapping one leg around their oar – Inle lake definitely is a must-not-miss during your trip in Myanmar. Around and inside the lake, you can not only relax but follow popular activities such as bicycling, hiking, boating, and/or ballooning – regardless of what you do, it will certainly be worthwhile.
