Indein Village, Taunggyi

4.7
#1 of 13 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 .

  • Our high speed long boat ride from Inle Lake was an adventure in itself then we were treated to the amazing site of hundreds of closely spaced stupas in various states of disrepair. Another highlight ...  more »
  • Many pagodas dating from the 14 th centuries, some renovated, others in the State. Nice walk through temple and pagodas. (Too many) dealers offer all handicrafts manufactured around the Lake. To do in the living room.

  • We have more than an hour in the dugout since Nyaungswhe to reach the village of In Dein. It is a small typical village of Lake Inle with its stilt houses. Some people wash the hair on the banks of the Lake. Walking a few minutes we find ourselves surrounded by hundreds of stupas in brick, grey or Golden half overgrown by vegetation where it is easy to get lost. In most remain Buddhas. It is a beautiful place that I loved. Beside these stupas there is a walkway where you can find a myriad of clothing and objects of all kinds.

Where to stay in Taunggyi

The city of Taunggyi possesses a handful of places to stay, with quite a variety between them. Never straying too far from the main north-south thoroughfare, the accommodations include upmarket resorts with golf courses and pools, simple hotels, hostels, and family-run guesthouses. Most international tourists stay in town for a night before carrying on their journey to the caves and lakes to the south, or Mandalay to the north--which has a good deal more lodgings.
