Travel Tips for Inle Lake

Sunset over Stupas

by herzog63

The area near the canal is a great place to wander. Your can find some Temples in the area too. There is a path that runs along the canal so you probably won't get lost. And if you do almost everyone speaks english so just ask someone to send you in the right direction.

The Karen people of eastern Burma

by GenuinelyCurious

I'm a little conflicted by taking pictures like these.

At one level, it's a little like a human zoo. At another, a vaild sociological, historical documentation of a practice that I assume is going to go the way of foot binding.

Gotta have a dock!

by herzog63

When you live on the water you gotta have a dock to tie up your boat in the evening. Also I noticed that most docks also served as the bathing area, dishes washing area and swimming area for the kids.

Nat Temple

by herzog63

This is the Nat temple for the canal people. The girl that was our paddler seemed quite pround to show us the temple which didn't look like much from the outside. But she explained how they would go there and pray to the Nats and make offerings to be protected. The inside had some religous icons and there were some flowers and fruits that had been left as an offering.

A quiet n refreshing change-Sankar,s Inle lake

by EchineTeo

A quiet oasis and really off the beaten track since it is a 2hour boat trip from Nampan. You will be amazed and entertained with the passing scenery n needs loads of memory chips as you'll hardly put down your camera. I thought I could have a snooze going there but not likely ! You'll pass sugarcane plantations, Bamboo forests where you'll see the locals cutting n stripping them to build their houses or loading them onto the boats to elsewhere. etc. Most of the Inle houses n some of the hotels use Bamboo as not everyone can afford the expensive teak owned by the generals. Glimpses of livestock - Bullocks, pigs, oxen n their owners/ herders enjoy wadding in the lake.
Sliding into the landing for Sankar was surreal, seeing the ancient stupas some lying on the water, some with planrs growing. We passed some villagers driving(Ben Hur Style) oxen cart loaded with wood to transport by boat to the markets/villages nearby. No shops or tourists, we visited the village nursery and the children were a delight, very shy n curious to meet us. I asked our guide via mt travel agent to get us US$50 worth of books n stationery beforehand as we rather give to the teachers to hand out as n when needed. we gave some books n stationery to passing school kids(they wear green loungyi/(sarongs). Imagine a 8-10 year old not knowing what a box of colour pencils is. ?
They have a hospital but not in use due to lack of funds n supplies of medicines n bandages.
All this we had to ask our Pao guide "why the building is new but not used ?" We were humbled that even they had so little they were so happy and not at all pushy . When we asked if we could bring medicines etc next time we come. "all help is welcome if you can spare !".
The whole area of Sankar's ancient temples n vistas of the numerous pagodas are a sight to behold, and the people there are enlightening and magical. I felt refreshed totally !! Trustees of the temples asking you to pls take a cup of hot greentea which he poured from his Themos flask, the shy kids and curious toddlers and patient n grateful teachers/carers. we didn't bring any candy for the kids so I worry about dental care there. They didn't ask for any !!! This is why I keep coming back to Inle now we will surely make a return trip to Sankar in the near future.
. When you start early in the morning (we started @ 9.30 because of our UK friend's lateness)from Inle Resort >Nampan to pick up our Pao guide for Sankar Pls ask your guide to ask the boatmen to bring blankets as the ride can get quite chilly in the oped motor boat n sometimes misty. Our Inle guide was well wrapped up- you can onle see her face !
We spent 2 nites in Inle and the highlight of our week long Burma trip was Sankar !
