Indein Village, Taunggyi

4.7
#1 of 16 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 .

  • Certainly one of the most amazing activities of our trip to Burma. Everything starts with a fairly long journey in canoes on a river with some passages of "Rapids", in the middle of the vegetation and the villagers who go about their business to lead in an unlikely area of temples and stupas. The first encountered are in ruins and some vegetation has taken its rights. Unfortunately also, there is the "mosquitoes", swarms of Pao women who try to sell you what they have with a zeal not retained. This is the first place in Burma where we felt this mercantilist pressure... damage so far, the discretion was instead of setting. Then there is the crossing of a maze of stupas to the temple at the top. Hidden in this temple, you will find perhaps a little interesting yard with phenomenal acoustics. Finally, the descent in a lengthy passage covered where piling the merchants from the temple
