Indein Village, Taunggyi

4.7
#1 of 19 in Historic Sites in Shan State
Located on the western bank of Inle Lake, the hillside village of Indein Village offers many cultural landmarks and holy sites nearby. On the summit of the tallest hill, a pagoda shelters a Buddha idol, while hundreds of smaller ancient stupas overgrown with vegetation dot the landscape below. Feel the cool breeze and hear the temple bells ringing as you ascend towards the top for a view of the surrounding natural scenery. You can also visit the mysterious Indein creek, which has narrow twists and turns and a bamboo dam used to irrigate the rice paddies. Days can get very hot and exhausting, so carry extra water during your trek. Put Indein Village on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Taunggyi route planner .

  • On a boat tour in Inle, you'll arrive at the in-ein village pier, where you'll see fishermen, water houses and children swimming in the traditional fishing methods of Lake Inre. After a long walkway lined with crafts and souvenir shops, you'll find the Shane in Pagoda, where small pagodas are clustered. After years of standing proudly, or walking through a procession of towers that have crumbled and damaged under the weight of the years, you'll find that you're more reverent than just the excitement of a trip.

  • The boat access to the stream amidst the lush vegetation is already very pleasant, then the vision of the countless old and recent stupas is impressive.
