This lake is most likely to leave the greatest impression on your trip to Myanmar. Fishermen appear in longboats and with great precision, balance on the bows of their boats with their conical baskets in hand and foot wound around their single oar. It’s something unique that you won’t see anywhere else in the world.
Rustic villages made up of wooden stilt houses straddle the waterways, along with over 200 monasteries. The lake is the local’s lifeblood and narrow wooden boats will be seen plying the lake for fish and lake weed.
Water levels are at their highest in October and November.
