We fly today to the town of Heho, which is the entry point for people going on to Inle Lake. As has been the case for all our internal flights this tour, the flight is delayed. When we arrive at Heho we decide to have an impromptu lunch at a restaurant near the airport. The place is a shack and we are worried about the food, but our doctors go and …
We hopped into long boats and enjoyed another 45 minute ride to a villiage on the southern end of the lake, allong the way were viewed floating gardens and the unique Inle fishermen who at times row with their leg and at other times hit the water with the paddle to scare fish into a net.
We were all set for a 3 hours trek, but instead of …
... fisherman. Standing on the bow of these extremely small wooden boats, the fisherman stand on one leg for balancing while using their other leg to hold an oar and paddle the boat. Myanmar wine?

On top of a hill overlooking Inle Lake, this winery has ...
... it was in the middle of the house: a TV. How funny it is to see so many homes around this third world country with no plumbing or basic medical care, yet they have TVs and sometimes even satellite dishes. Talk about some serious priorities.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHupin Khaung Daing Resort Inle Lake
A lovely spot with cabins on stilts above the lake surrounded by water lily and water hyacinths. The dining area is up on the hill, so it is a bit of a walk from your room, but worth it for the interesting experience of sleeping in these cabins. They are rusting. The lighting is a bit dim. Each one has a private terrace where you can sit and enjoy the view.
