Inle Lake Tour – Burma Discovery

Inle lake is one of the most magical places in Myanmar. This vast waterway is located in the heart of Shan State which shares borders with Thailand & Laos. An Inle Lake Tour is a “must – see” part of any visit to Burma.

Located over 900 meters above sea level in the heart of the Shan Plateau, this beautiful highland lake is home to many ethnic groups with more than 30 hill tribes living in the surrounding mountains as well as ‘floating’ communities of native lake dwellers known as the Inthas.

One highlight of an Inle Lake Tour is when the Intha, Shan, Pa-O, Taung Yo, Danu, Kayah and Danaw tribal people come together at the market that moves around the lake on a five-day cycle (your guides always know where it is).
