tour description

Start your tour to enjoy a half day boat trip on Inle Lake. Its calm waters are dotted with floating vegetation and fishing canoes to which scenic hills provide the perfect backdrop. See the lake's unique leg rowers - Inthar fishermen who row standing up with one leg wrapped around a single oar, leaving their hands free to manipulate the conical fishing net. Stop at Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the holiest religious site in southern Shan State. Pass endless floating gardens where Intha lake dwellers grow fruits and vegetables. Continue by boat to visit Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery, one of the oldest on the lake, where you can see exquisite Buddha statues which are more than 200 years old. Return by boat to your hotel in Inle Lake.
