East and west parts of Inle Lake, full day actions packed tour
Biking is quite suitable as the area is flat and easy to do biking, and you can see the beauty of Inle Lake in different ways, not just by the boat. Eastern part of the lake is definitely an active and exciting trip. Today we start visiting by bike from Shwe Yan Pyae monastery with oval windows, glass mosaic and learn there about monastic education as you will see young monks are studying there. On the way to village to east bank, we can stop and visit at Shan Museum, old palace of Shan Prince (the first president of Myanmar-1948). After 2-3 hours easy biking, tour will end at Aureum Palace Hotel jetty. Drinks will be served at there. Continue by boat to west bank of the lake, a relaxing trip by a private boat to Khaung Daing and visit Intha’s villages at the west bank of Inle Lake. See how they produce Tohu, soy-bean and birds’ foods make from the flour. Continue walk through Bamboo forest and en route see the ways of life of Intha busy with the boat, planting and with their household things. A local transport will take you finally to visit temples ruined in Indein village. At the end we’ll return back to hotel. Lunch will be served at one local restaurant in the lake.
