Itinerary

DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Sagar, Myanmar
A Little Lodge Dinner

Depart from Nyaung Shwe, Inle Lake and head to Sagar on the southern end of Inle Lake. Very few tourists make it to this region, yet it is one of the most beautiful places in the Shan State. Mountains the perfect backdrop for small picturesque fishing villages in a setting that almost begs to be committed to canvas. The whole area was only recently opened to tourists in 2003.

The boat journey takes two-to-three hours, but is full of fabulous views and home to many unique species of birds, both indigenous and migratory. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

Upon arriving in Sagar there are several stops that will be made (the order will depend on the time, other tourist boats, and what’s happening in the villages). The main highlight, for many travellers, are the ‘sunken’ stupas of Sagar. More than a hundred stupas from the 16th and 17th centuries are partially submerged underwater for a few months a year. There is also a local monastery and village that make for wonderful places to stop for a bit of cultural exploration.

Overnight in Sagar.

Day 2
Sagar, Myanmar
A Little Lodge Breakfast, Lunch

This morning, enjoy breakfast on the lodge’s rooftop terrace.

After checking out of the hotel, continue to the village of Thaya Gone, home to Pa-Oh, Shan, and Inthar people. The area is also well-known for the production of local rice wine. Watch the process of distillation and then sample some of the local brew as well. In Thaya Gone there is also the chance to climb to the top of a small hill with great views of the lake and surrounding villages.

Another stop will be made in Sae Khaung Pottery Village to see the crafting of oil and water pots as well as the natural, underground kilns used by villagers. On the western shores of the Sagar area is Tar Kaung, home to more than 200 stupas which also make for a fabulous photo opportunity.

Lunch will be arranged along the way (local lunch at a small restaurant).

Return to Inle Lake or Nyaung Shwe for the onward flight.
