Inle is one of the biggest lakes in Burma. It’s famous for its stunning location between the hills of Shan State, easy access by air (domestic flights only), relatively easy access by road and an out-standing amount of attractions, which could fill a medium-long holiday. From leg-rowing fishermen through artisans (blacksmiths, goldsmiths, silversmiths etc.) to mysterious pagodas submerged in the water in Sagar/Sankar on the quiet and wild southern part of the lake. No trip to Myanmar would be complete without visiting Inle Lake.

This programme connects well with our Southern Shan State Adventure programme (additional 2 nights) and Ngapali Beach extension as there are direct flights between Heho and Thandwe in high season.




Fly from Rangoon, Mandalay or Pagan to Heho - the gateway to Inle Lake. Drive to Nyaung Shwe to board a local motorboat and enjoy the sights & sounds of the lake such as leg-rowing fishermen and plenty of artisan workshops (blacksmiths, goldsmiths silversmiths, cigarette makers etc.). Overnight at Sanctum Inle Resort.



Enjoy half a day trip to Indein - a hidden village located in the middle of the Burmese jungle and easiest accessible by boat through narrow channels. Indein is famous for its collection of hundreds years old stupas. Return to the hotel after lunch and relax.



After breakfast or lunch transfer back to Heho airport for your onward flight.

Sanctum Inle Resort

Sanctum Inle Resort is the latest addition to the luxury resort scene at Inle Lake and the last hotel allowed to be built on the shore of the lake. At the Sanctum Inle Resort, arches and cloisters refer-ence the monastic life, opening the doors on a more contemplative experience of travel. With a de-sign that celebrates the fundamentals, that merges the spiritual and the secular, the past and the present, East and West, the hotel is a gateway to one of the Asia’s most fascinating locales.
