Inle Lake Map and Area of Inle Lake

Inle Lake is located in the centre of the greatest depression in Myanmar's Nyaungshwe Valley, situated between two mountain ranges. With a length of 22km, a width of 11km, and an elevation of 875 metres, Inle Lake is considered as the second-largest natural lake in the country. It is interesting to note that the lake does not have an actual shoreline, but its shores and islands are home to 17 villages on stilts.

Most of the attractions found in Inle Lake are of the religious variety. Because the Inthas (the inhabitants of the lake) are Buddhists, this is something to be expected. One of the religious attractions in the area is the Phaungdawoo Pagoda. It is said to be the most sacred pagoda in the entire southern Shan State, and one of the most famous shrines in the country. Two more pagodas found in Inle Lake are Shwe Indein Pagoda and Alodaw Pauk Pagoda.

Another attraction that draws tourists to Inle Lake has something to do with cats. Nga Phe Kyaung is the largest and oldest monastery in the area, and it is known worldwide for its performing cats that jump through a hoop like those in a circus.
