We travel by small private boat on the lake, visiting to the famous Paung Daw Oo pagoda, with its five famous Buddha images (four of which are carried in great ceremony around the lake during the Paung Daw Oo festival) and also nearby Inpawkhone Village where, in houses on stilts, we see traditional silk weaving with hand looms and the processing of lotus blossoms as they are made into beautiful fabric. After our lunch time break on the lake, visit traditional crafts-making such as blacksmithing, cheroot (local cigar) rolling, and boat making. Then enjoy a boat ride through the Kaylar village observing the many houses on stilts and the ways of life. We will see the floating gardens up close, then on to the ‘Ngaphae Chaung Monastery’ which is an interesting old traditional monastery on the lake. Overnight at Hotel in Inle.
Day-2: Indaing Sightseeing (B)
After breakfast, continue Inle Lake sightseeing together with English Speaking guide as a memorable visit to Indain village with its idyllic 17th century pagodas. To reach Indain and the nearby village we will take a boat ride up a small scenic creek that runs into Inle lake Lake, passing villages and water buffalo bathing in the creek as we traverse small ‘dams’ built to slow the flow of water. A few Indain pagodas are being restored but most of them still lie in an abandoned ‘Indiana Jones’ type setting. To reach there, travel up a scenic creek in your boat.
