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. Use our Nyaungshwe trip planner to add Inle Lake and other attractions to your Nyaungshwe vacation plans.
