HEHO (INLE LAKE)
So near, yet so far. Inle Lake is just a short flight from Yangon but it feels worlds apart from the rest of Myanmar. Located in the cool green highlands of Shan State, it is an area of incredible natural beauty and the lake itself sits a pleasant 870 metres (2900 feet) above sea level. It is famous for the local Intha fishermen who row their boats using their legs as well as the floating markets and prolific birdlife. In this unique wetland environment, whole villages sit on floating islands perched above the water. Colourful hill tribes inhabit the surrounding fertile valleys and forested mountain tops, and their hand-woven silks are a speciality of the region.
