Inle is a vast lake located in the heart of
the Shan State
which shares borders with Thailand and Laos. It climbs up to
over 900 meters above sea level and it is outrageously beautiful. Inle Lake is located in the mountains so it is cooler than
other areas. More than 30 hill tribes are living in the
Phaungdawoo Pagoda is an amazing floating pagoda in the
Inle Lake. The Phaungdawoo Pagoda festival and the boat racing
competition are great experiences for the
tourists that come to visit the region. The floating markets and the lifestyles of the Inthars are also a total different environment for visitors.
Nyaung Shwe has the main harbor to Inle Lake. Taunggyi
hot air balloons festival is another interesting event of
Myanmar. Pindaya Caves has great Buddha Images in different
sizes. Kakku Pagodas are still the untouched architectures
of the ancient times. Hopong and Kalaw are the other cities
