As arriving at the airport, you will be transferred to the Pindaya caves. Set deep in the hillsides, the caves contain some 6000 Buddhas of various sizes, which are made of white marble, bronze or plaster, and coated with gold leaf. Keep driving to the magical Inle Lake – the jewel of Shan State. Visiting the lake, you not only have chance to immerse in the charming scenery of the lake but also get an insight into the local culture and history.

Overnight at the hotel in Inle Lake.

After breakfast, set off your amazing journey with a boat trip on the stunning Inle Lake. Inle lake is the country's second largest lake and features floating villages, gardens, various tribes nearby and fishermen who row with their legs. You will pass through several villages that are built on stilts over the lake and the ‘floating gardens’ which are built up from strips of water hyacinth and earth then anchored to the bottom of the lake with bamboo poles. You will also see the leg -rowing fishermen of the lake who steer their boats with incredible balance. 

En-route, you will take in beautiful sights of some of lake’s most renowned sites. Make a stop to visit Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda -the most highly revered monastery in the Inle Lake area. It houses five ancient images of the Buddha that are completely covered in golf leaf. You also visit the nearby Nga Phe Chaung Monastery an attractive wooden monastery built on stilts over the lake at the end of the 1850s. The monastery is also known for a collection of old Myanmar’s Buddha images from different areas that are worth seeing. Your last stop is Nam Pan village where you will learn about the local life through a visit to the cotton and lotus weaving factories and cigar making houses.

In the late afternoon, return to the hotel.

After breakfast, you will be collected from your hotel for a beautiful excursion today. Set off from the low-lying lands at Inle Lake toward Taunggyi, then head into the rolling hills toward the east of the lake.

Along the way, you could see spectacular views of railway line and small villages inhabited by Pa- Oh people. Spend time taking in the tranquil scenery in Taunggyi.

After two hour drive, you will reach Kakku which is home to Asia’s largest and most spectacular wonders. The Pagoda complex has over 5200 stupas with origins dating back centuries ago. Wander throughout the temples, take your time to enjoy the wonder and awe of this site and discover the intricate carvings and details on the structures.

You will not only have chance to visit the temples, but also nearby villages to have better understanding about the locals’ lives and customs. Afterwards, drive back to Inle Lake.

In the morning, depart for a trip to the local market which takes place once every five days. This is the meeting point of the locals around the region to buy and sell their fresh produce.

Afterwards, make your way to the Pa- Oh village of Indein. Indein is one of the small villages of Inle Lake located on the western bank of the lake. Here you will explore the ancient temple of Indein as well as enjoy the peacefulness of the village.

After lunch, transfer to the airport for your departure flight.
