Yangon - Inle lake by flight

Inle lake is one of the most beautiful places in Myanmar, located in Shan state with altitude of 3000 feet above the sea level.

UNESCO recognized it as Bio-sphere reserved of the world in Paris in 2015 to preserve the natural and cultural diversity of the lake areas.

Inle people are unique because they row the boat with legs and they cultivate fruits and vegetables in the wetland on the water.

The weather in the lake is nice for the passengers and you can experience unforgettable memories in your life time, visiting the lake in Myanmar also known as Burma.

Burmese are the happiest people in the world, an American vice president said , when he visited Burma. Even though Inle people live on the water, they are happy and satisfied with their ways of life and they believe in Buddhism firmly erecting many Buddha images and pagodas.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a very nice trip to Inlay and got to see many fascinating things. Unfortunately, Htay was not overly forthcoming in commentary which left us to try to figure out what we were seeing where they built the boats and the weaving factory. We would have prefered an upfront explanation of what we were doing and seeing each day. We spent the last day touring Yangon and Htay did a much better job there. We suspect he was in his element in Yangon.
