Inle Lake is an attractive, tranquil (when longtail boats are not buzzing by) area in Burma's Shan Hills, awash with
interesting characters, such as leg-rowing fishermen
and ethnic tribes trawling the markets, as well as floating
tomato fields and cats jumping through hoops, but not much in the way of ancient pagodas, though a side trip to Kakku will provide a stupendous overdose of stupas if required.
An Inle boy displaying the customary leg-rowing skill, unique to Lake Inle and enabling the rower to see and avoid patches of floating weed.
Boys playing on Lake Inle's famous floating vegetable fields.
The lake's 'Jumping Cat' Monastery, Nga Phe, which also has a fine collection
of Buddhas in addition to...
...a jumping cat.
Hpaung (also Phaung) Daw U Pagoda, the
holiest pagoda in the Shan state, where 100's of years of daily gold leaf have turned these
five Buddhas to Blobs - that's what a high carb diet does to you. Next, Lake Inle Day Trips Pictures.
