How to get there

The most convenient way is to fly from Yangon, Bagan or Mandalay to Heho, which is the nearest airport to the lake. There are daily flights to Heho. If you are flying from Mandalay to Heho, it takes only 20 minutes. Traveling by car along the uphill and winding road over the Shan Plateau is interesting and well-worth taking although it takes long hours.

Inthar Heritage House

Despite its popularity, this is a wonderful place to have lunch on Inle Lake. It’s very remote, so best visited as part of a day tour on the southern lake, but hotels can arrange a boat transfer from Nyaung Shwe, taking an hour each way. The two-story mansion, built with reclaimed timbers, stands on stilts in a silk-weaving village. The menu is based on Inthar family recipes such as steamed stuffed banana flowers and spring onion dumplings served with a tamarind dipping sauce. There are also local takes on Myanmar classics such as Let Thoke (tea leaf salad) and a more-ish banana cake. Go early or late to avoid the tour groups which arrive around 1pm. Don’t leave without asking to visit the Myanmar cats living downstairs. These aristocratic cats, once owned only by royalty and monks and so popular in the West, had almost died out in their native land until the Inle Princess Hotel started a breeding program.

TRANSPORT

Nyaung Shwe is a good starting point for boat tours across Inle Lake. You should start such a tour early in the morning and dress warmly, as it is cold from December through until the end of February and there is an icy airstream.
The dock can be found at the main channel, directly next to the Best Western Thousand Island Hotel.
The boat, with its outboard engine, offers enough space for up to 5 people and can be hired through the hotel or at the dock directly.
An all-day standard boat tour to the floating village of Yoma, the weaver’s village Inpawkon, the Phaung-Daw-Oo Pagoda, the floating gardens and the Nga Phe Chaung Monastery costs approx. 20,000 Kyat (US$ 17). For a visit to Indein you will pay approx. 26,000 Kyat (US$ 22), and an all-day boat trip to Samkar costs approx. 67,000 Kyat (US$ 56).

Our travel tip:

Spend a few days away from the usual tourist trail. A three-hour boat trip will take you to Samkar, where you will have the opportunity to experience the original culture and traditional lifestyle of the Pao and Intha people. Overnight stays can be arranged in Samkar in “A Little Lodge in Samkar” as well as in the “Inle Sanctuary” in Phayartaung. 

You can also go on beautiful bike tours starting in Nyaung Shwe. You can either ride via Kaung Dine and then along the western bank of Inle Lake to Indein (approx. four hours), or along the eastern bank via Maing Thauk and Nampan and on to Samkar (approx. eight hours). It will then take you a further six hours from Samkar to Loikow.
