infoInle Lake is located at Latitude: 20°46' N and Longitude: 97°01’E. The temperature is between 12.C - 28. C. The population of the Inthars are about 80,000. Inle Lake is a huge lake (22 km long and 10 km across) located in Shan State, over 900 meters above sea-level, and it is outrageously beautiful.

The strangest thing about Inle is native lake-dwellers, living on ‘floating islands’. Have you ever seen an island in your life which floats around? This is no magic. No miracle. No joke. It’s real!

 Inle Lake is one of the most significant and productive ecological system supporting an immense variety of plants and animals and yielding great wealth for Myanmar through its occurrence of floating islands and the living style of the natives.

Floating islands are collection of floating weed and water hyacinth, which later piled up and hardened, that even vegetation can be grown, and even houses can be built on top of them. These floating islands can be cut, dragged by boats, or even be sold like a piece of land!

This vast picturesque lake is one of the main tourist attractions in Myanmar. Besides, it is the home of some 80,000 Inthars (native lake-dwellers) in 17 villages. Many Inthars live in their huts and wooden bungalows on floating islands, while some live by the villages lakeshore. Inle Lake, natural and unpolluted, is famous for their amazing lifestyle and its incomparable scenic beauty. You have to find out why this unique leg-rowing custom is practiced by Inthars.

Living Legend: Why do they live a harder life on water, and not on land? There goes a folk tale that today’s lake-dwellers are descendants of some Myanmar troops centuries ago. They were once sent to exile by an angry Emperor.

The order of exile was ‘to leave his land’. But these Myanmar troops were so royal and smart, that they left Myanmar land obeying the emperor, by living on water in Inle Lake, but never left the country they love so much!

Now the tourism industry in Myanmar has been developed towards and many international and local standard hotels, inns, motels are built on the lake. It is very convenient for local and foreign visitors to visit the beautiful Inle Lake.
