Just a short flight from Yangon or Mandalay, in the cool green highlands of Shan State, and yet seemingly worlds apart from the rest of Myanmar, lies Inle Lake, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The lake itself sits at a pleasant 2,900 feet above sea level and is famous for its leg rowers, floating markets and prolific birdlife. In this unique wetland environment, whole villages sit on floating islands on the lake. Colorful hill tribes inhabit the surrounding fertile valleys and forested mountaintops, and their hand-woven silks are a specialty of the region. Heho is home to Inle Lake and a visit is like traveling back in time. Over 7,000 people from different ethnic groups live in small villages and towns bordering the lake. Their way of life has changed little over the years and fisherman still row boats with one leg while standing on the other. It is amazing! Although tourism has started to creep its way into village life, the lake still offers a serene escape from the hectic pace of life found elsewhere in Asia” Charlotte Ham, Marketing Executive, Luxury Travel Ltd Myanmar.
