A completely special dimension to the Myanmar travel experience. Here the stress is on lovely lake scenery, hazy distant mountains and interesting local society. The vast lake,
natural and clean, is studded with floating islands and is renowned for its scenic beauty, unique leg-rowers and colorful local markets. This vast picturesque lake, 900 metres above sea-level, is one of the main tourist attractions in Myanmar. The lakeshore and lake islands bear 17 villages on stilts, mostly occupied by the Intha people.
