Welcome to the Inle Lake Region

The Pride Of Shan State








The Inle Lake Region is one of the most picturesque and magical destinations in the whole of Myanmar. The kernel of the region is the Inle Lake, a glistening pool of water - measuring 13.5 miles long and 7 miles wide – that provides not only sustenance to the 30-over hill tribes surrounding it, but also a breathtaking backdrop to the visitors who are looking to experience nature's unadulterated beauty.

The Inle Lake Region is situated in the heart of Shan State, a vast state in the northeast of Myanmar that shares borders with China, Thailand and Laos. Shan State contains only 3 cities of significant size, which are Lashio, Kengtung and the capital, Taunggyi.

Occupied predominantly by the Shan people, Shan State comprises 54 townships that are largely rural, and is renowned for its undulating hills, affable inhabitants, rich agricultural heritage and of course, the Inle Lake Region
