DAY 7CYCLE TO INLE LAKE, VISIT INN THEIN PAGODA

Transfer to Aungban A small but busy transit town on the main Southern Shan State highway. It is from here that we start our today’s biking to Inle Lake. Set off on your bike through the sparsely populated farmland as you pass by the small villages of Danu, Pa-O and Taung Yo people that make their leaving mostly from agriculture. For the first couple of miles there will be pine groves to both sides of the road providing substantial shade. Later this landscape will give way to seasonal cabbage and potato, sesame and mustard fields.

Please keep in mind that roads in Myanmar countryside are constantly being improved as economic development slowly comes to the region. Roughly first half of the road that we are taking today is covered with asphalt, while the other half is yet a dirt track with some ranges of soft sand and gravel. We will tackle a few rather steep hills before making a lunch stop at a restaurant located on top of a hill overlooking the picturesque mountain valley dotted with fields and pine groves.

The last stretch of the road will be mostly downhill with just few relatively easy climbs, as we slowly approach the valley of Inle Lake with views of Shan mountains and rice paddy fields. In the early afternoon we will reach the foot of the hills and enter the village of Inn Thein, a site that makes us feel as if we’ve stepped through a forgotten portal in time. To access the Inn Thein archeological site, we walk through verdant bamboo groves that open up to a field covered with the ancient pagodas constructed over 1,000 years ago – truly an amazing sight and a highlight of the lake. Take a break under a shady tree surrounded by bamboo forest and ancient pagodas.

From Inn Thein, should you wish, you can pedal all the way to Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda along the narrow dirt trails, or board traditional long tail boat and head down a winding creek out to the lake. On the way you will meet Inthar fishermen busy with their floating gardens and water buffaloes. The boat then takes you to the hotel conveniently located on the north-eastern edge of the lake against the backdrop of scenic mountains.

Over 10 km of white sand beach runs along the Bay of Bengal, with a smattering of only a dozen or so resorts to create a sense of seclusion and hidden discovery. The limited development and small number of visitors means the beach never feels crowded, a dream come true for lovers of the sun, sea and sand. Besides the usual sunbathing and swimming, leisure activities include snorkeling, sailing, scenic walks and bike trips. Far away from tourist crowds, Ngapali Beach is still a truly undiscovered paradise. The long beach is dotted with charming boutique style resorts built in local materials, the architecture blending harmoniously with the natural surroundings. There are no high rises, no noisy roads, no booming discotheques, no jet-skis and no packed rows of oiled bodies baking in the sun. The stretch of white sand, natural beauty of the blue sea, swaying palm trees and quiet privacy are guaranteed ingredients of an exquisite beach holiday.
