Nestled among the hazy Shan Mountains, 900 meters above sea level, its glassy blue waters running 14.5 km in length and 6.44 km in breadth is the picturesque Inle Lake – certainly one of the most magical sights in South East Asia. The lake is not only a beautiful sight to enjoy, but also practical home to the native Inthas (sons of the lake), who live on the lakes in stilt houses with their neatly cultivated floating farms and nurseries. The truly unique Inle Lake leg-rowers and fishermen cannot be missed as you glide through the waters on your boats on a dream-like adventure. The presence of many ethnic groups in the area also makes it a captivating place of much cultural interest. The main attraction of Inle Lake is the famous Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda situated in the middle of the lake. Every October, both local and foreign pilgrims and visitors would flock to the Pagoda for its annual festival.
