Monks on the Water
Inle Lake has the most beautiful sites, and it's a thriving cottage industry center. Here you can watch weavers, potters, gold and silversmiths at work. The lake is 900 meters above sea level, 22km long and 10km wide. The diverse ethnic population, the floating farms, the unique leg-rowed traditional boats all add up an amazing place to visit.
