Inle Lake, Nyaungshwe

4.6
#1 of 83 in Parks in Myanmar
Natural and unpolluted, with fantastic mountainous scenery, Inle Lake stands out as the second largest lake in Myanmar, and also the country's highest altitude lake. Enjoy a spectacular leg-rowing performance by native lake-dwellers or fishermen casting their cone-shaped nets, or take your pick of the wares at a daily floating market. Standing at an altitude of 880 m (2,900 ft), this freshwater lake covers some 116 sq km (45 sq mi), providing a home to nine endemic species of fish and over 20 species of snails. This popular tourist spot offers classy hotels, but also low-budget, family-run accommodation. You can rent a bike, visit a massage parlor, or enjoy Shan State cuisine, a favorite in the country.

  • On the journey of Yandian, my favorite is The Lake Ineo! When you take the boat to see the sunset, there's still heavy rain behind the lake... The next day and chartered a boat to see the sunrise and the fushow, which is unique to the lake in the city of Ineo, and also went to the village of Intin, the mother of the water is very beautiful, but it is worth a visit! It's been more than a month since I missed everything there.

  • So much to see and do on this vast lake - get a boat and explore! There are a lot of touristy places and especially shops such as weaving, silver craft, cigar making etc, but if you're not interested ...  more »

  • Been to Inle Lake twice and absolutely love this place!!! The serene, vast and beautiful lake is one very great attraction in Myanmar. Would be more fun to visit the lake during the float/boat festival where more exciting and interesting events occur. Love the activities on the lake - boat trip, floating garden, markets and the unique way of boatman rowing oar with just their legs!!!
  • One of the most beautiful areas of the world I've visited. Not spoiled too much by tourism. Hopefully it will stay that way.
