The region where the Inle Lake is found is a world of its own. It’s where one can steal a glimpse into the village life of Myanmar. Here, one can observe fishermen row canoes using a leg, and the fascinating wooden houses that perch above the water on stilts.
Best Time to Visit
While you’re holidaying at a property such as PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw, make sure that you find time to visit Inle Lake. Note that this lake is best visited during the dry season, which falls between October and May.
Unusual Leg-rowing Technique
Intha fishermen are known for their peculiar leg-rowing technique. They steer and row the boat using the right leg, which is wrapped around an oar. The left leg is used to standing in the stern.
Apart from some of the other places to visit in Nay pyi Taw, Inle Lake is a must-visit, particularly to visit the awesome floating gardens. These gardens are grown on reed mats and loosely held to the lake bottom by bamboo poles.
Taking a Boat Trip
A boat trip should be the best way to experience the best of what Inle Lake has to offer. Each morning, various boats from slender wooden canoes to long-tailed motorboats pass each other, transporting travellers from one intriguing sight to the other.
