Discover the wonders of Inle Lake that is the home of the Intha, or sons of the lake, located right in the middle of Shan State. We’ll travel to the south of Inle Lake to a serene lakeside village far from normal tourist’s footprints. Phaya Taung village is a charming village on the lakeside that hosts locals from several different tribes as well as a huge monastery. You’ll stay at a comfortable resort with fewer than 10 bungalows on stilts that is run by a friendly Pa O husband and wife team who started this community based tourism project on the quiet side of the lake. Don’t expect souvenir shops or restaurants here...This short extension from Inle Lake is perfect for nature lovers who love to go off the beaten track and discover communities in this beautiful part of Shan state.
