SANGHAR & THA KHAUNG PAGODAS

Situated a 3-hour boat ride from Nyaung Shwe village. The boat trip to the Southern end of Inle Lake and further through a creek before getting to a 2nd lake with Sanghar is fascinating. Highlights are the pagoda ruins from the 17th Century, still un restored on the banks of that Lake. The area is sometimes flooded.

In the Southern part of Inle Lake pottery villages and a lotus robe-weaving village can be visited. 200 stupas at Thakhaung village are worth a visit. You can observe the local distillery method in Thakhaung village.
