The Inle Lake is the “Venice of Burma”. On its waters there are 17 villages whose houses stand on stilts and are inhabited by the Intha tribe. It is quite curious their way of fishing and much more original their way of rowing : they help themselves with one foot .
The Intha grow vegetables on floating islands formed by a mixture of marshland and water hyacinths. These latter that take the water through the algae in the bottom and form solid masses.
In the “Phaung Daw U Paya” there are five small Buddha so revered that the considerable thickness of the golden leaves applied by the devotees made them unrecognizable. In the “Nga Phe Kyaung” Monastery , built on stilts, the monks have taught cats and make them jump inside circles.
