Kayaking on the Inle Lake
See Inle Lake through the eyes of a local with a memorable kayaking adventure. Travel by motorboat to a quiet corner of the lake where the kayaks await. Your guide will share with you some safety information and a basic course in navigating the boats. Then don a lifejacket and head to the water!
Sharing lifetime memories in Myanmar
The two-person kayaks are perfect for the placid waters of Inle. They are stable and comfortable, as well as easy to steer, even for the novice paddler. Seated just inches above the water you will get to see Inle Lake from a different perspective so be sure to have your camera on hand!
Must see sights of Inle Lake
Follow your guide through narrow canals not easily accessible to motorboats. Glide past stilted houses, where the lake’s residents live above the water. Paddle around floating gardens where crops such as tomatoes and chilis grow on ‘islands’ made of water hyacinth.
With the motorboats sticking to the main part of the lake, you will likely have the canals to yourself. The occasional canoe may pass by, carrying school kids or farmers on their way to the market with fresh produce. But otherwise it will just be you, slowly paddling past these amazing scenes.
Best places to meet locals around Inle Lake
Along the way, stop in a local family’s house for a rest and a snack. The hosts are happy to welcome you into their humble home and you will get a glimpse of what life is like on the lake. Forge a deeper connection with Myanmar culture as you learn about their daily activities and traditions.
Then resume your Inle Lake exploration, paddling the kayaks through more scenic channels. Continue meandering through the villages until reaching the take-out location. Climb out of the kayaks, stretch our legs and savor a few last moments of solitude before returning to the main part of the lake by motorized longtail boat.
