Indein Village, Taunggyi

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Indein Village during your Taunggyi vacation using our convenient Taunggyi vacation builder.

  • Some of the debris field and ruined pagodas of different sizes and types. Very mystical! The trees and Streucher grow between the pagodas. A mix between Bagan on the Irrawaddy and Angkor Wat (Temple of Ta Prohm) in Cambodia. It is worth a walk through this special landscape.
