Itinerary (Inle Lake - Shan State - Mine Thauk Village- Indeen Village - Ma Gyi Pin village, Moe Kaung village, Dong Ta Khawh village, Hti Ne village and Naung Khe village - Dong Ta Khawh village - Sangkha - Inle Lake )

Private tour: Departure everyday from Lake Inle

Day  1
Inle Lake (-/Lunch/-)
Excursion by boat on Inle Lake with sightseeing at Mine Thauk Village
INLE LAKE: Inle Lake, located in Shan State, is beautiful, with very calm waters dotted with patches of floating vegetation and fishing canoes. High hills rim the lake on all sides. The lake's shore and islands bear 17 villages on stilts, mostly inhabited by the Intha people. Enjoy the spectacular scenery and observe the skilled fisherman using their leg rowing technique to propel themselves around the lake. Visit the floating gardens, a floating market and a Intha village around the lake.
The day sightseeing also includes a visit to the PHAUNG DAW OO PAGODA and the NGA PHE KYAUNG MONASTERY and Mine Thauk Village.
Transfer to/from Red Mountain Restaurant and Winery with wine tasting
Overnight in Inle Lake.

Day  2
Inle Lake (Breakfast/Lunch/-)
After breakfast, transfer by boat to the village of Indein.
Take a short walk around the village, passing a local school and head to a covered stairway to the beautiful Alaung Sitthou area (Indein Temple complex) where dozens of ancient stupas stand in an overgrown jungle like setting.
Start trekking to Kyar Tun village with great wide angle panoramic views via the foothill of U Daung Thaung, which we will bypass on our outgoing leg.
Another hour from the foothill of U Daung Thaung brings you to Kyar Tun village. The residents of the village are Pa O and Taung Yoe ethnic tribes. Walk through the village and observe their daily lives.
Then take about 45 minutes back to the foothill of U Daung Thaung. From this point, walk uphill for about 45 min. to a monastery. At times, the ascent is rather steep. On the way, stop regularly for a breather, for some unique snapshots, and mainly to enjoy an uninterrupted clear panoramic view of the whole southern lake area.
Visit U Daung Thaung Monastery and the burial site of the famous monk, venerated in this region for his meditation and devotion to the Sasana (the spreading of the Budddhist Teachings).
If in luck we can get the opportunity to meet Pa O ethnic tribes who come for Sabbath day offerings or one or other religious ceremony there; that is also the case when trekking to and from Kyar Tun village.
Enjoy a picnic style lunch there. Descend U Daung Thaung and continue back to Indein temple complex (approx. 60 min.).
Visit adjacent Sae Ma village and after that transfer back to Inle by boat. (Total walking time is 4 hrs and 30 min.)
Overnight in Inle Lake

Day  3
Inle Lake (Breakfast/Lunch/-)
After breakfast transfer by boat to Nampan jetty on the east bank of Inle Lake. Start a nice trek towards the high hills through deep Pa O territory in the Shan mountains passing settlements such as Ma Gyi Pin village, Moe Kaung village, Dong Ta Khawh village, Hti Ne village and Naung Khe village.
After approximately one hour trekking from Nampan, reach Dong Ta Khawh village where you can observe their main daily economic activities including mainly cheroot leaves production.
Right beyond this point follows the most challenging part of the trek with a steep climb for about one hour up to Hti Ne village with great sweeping views of some of the southern Inle Lake area and villages. After a short rest and a quick look around in Hti Ne we are off again. Our final leg of the trek another 90 min. approx. brings you from Hti Ne to Naung Khe village through rolling countryside in which a wide variety of agricultural activities take place.
Get into a waiting vehicle and drive from Naung Khe to Kakku Temple complex, a collection of over 2000 Buddhist stupas dating from the 12th and 13th centuries and concentrated in the space of one square kilometer.
Enjoy Lunch. Drive back to Nyaung Shwe via Taunggyi with a short stop to visit the large local Taunggyi market. Return by boat to Inle from Nyaung Shwe. Overnight in Inle Lake.

Day  4
Inle Lake (Breakfast/Lunch/-)
Depart from the Golden Island Cottages hotel and begin travelling by powered-boat about 3 hours to Sangkha, a picturesque town on lower Inle Lake, inhabited by Pa-O and Intha peoples.
Explore this hillside village, obserive the traditional culture and lifestyles of these ethnic groups.
Walking through Sangkha village to observe local methods of producing high degree of alcohol fermented and extracted from Bran Rice and making bullock cart wheels.
Lunch of the day would be served at a restaurant near Thakong Pagoda with prior arrangement in a local style or Chinese set menu.
The day excursion also includes a visit to the market at the Shan village of Kyauk Taing, mostly live on earthenware pottery works.

Day  5
Inle Lake (Breakfast/Lunch/-)
Start a half day ride to some Intha villages.
After a short while stop and make a climb up the hill to the Taung Chay Taw Ya Monastery where we have some nice views of the surrounding area (appr. 30 min.).
Continue north through bamboo forest.
After one hour riding, stop at Than Taung village to explore the lifestyle of the Intha ethnicity.
If lucky, experience a Than Taung village market visit (5 day rotational market) to observe their produce and trade. Proceed to Nwar Dhama village for about 30 min.
Take a genuine pleasure in cycling passing through dense bamboo forests along the embankment.
Stop at Intha Village House in Nwar Dhama Village to end your bike adventure.
There, enjoy a traditional Intha lunch but enhanced by a Fine Cuisine concept. While exploring grab the chance to watch in detail how cheroots are made.
After lunch, relax and walk around to explore some more village activities set in a wonderful mixture of all sorts of country green, the water of the lake itself, and the somewhat darker shades of the bamboo forest on the landside. There is also the possibility to explore Kyae Sar Gone village (floating garden) by canoe including a visit of a typical stilthouse. Proceed by boat to Inle lake.
