Some say the ruins and stupas aren't worth it. We say the journey is the adventure. Enjoy what unfolds winding through various tributaries. Better yet, make this your destination instead of one stop on an all day excursion with dozens of sites. Getting there requires an accomplished boat driver that can steer through the low waters and bamboo weirs while... More

Best way to visit - to rent a private boat. We paid 25000 kyats for 4 persons. Fantastic place! On the way you can visit other interesting places.

We arrived in the village by boat and as it was market day wandered around looking at the fresh products. Then we started to walk through the ruins which were very interesting as in a state of decay you actually saw how these buildings were built. Brick by brick no cement. We continued walking until we arrived at the newer... More

A scenic, bustling village on Inle lake with markets. The adjacent magnificent pagoda complex is a must

This is a hugely popular pilgrimage site and tourist destination, not the Stupa ruins but the temple at the top with its covered walkway full of every souvenir that you have seen pretty much everywhere else. The ruins of the stupas have all been robbed of any possible hidden treasures. Some have been clad in plain concrete render, a couple... More

excellent setting of ancient temples and pagodas, - a "mini Bagan" the trees growing on top of many of the monuments are reminiscent of Ta Prohm in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This site is rapidly crumbling as the monuments were built primarily of a soft brick. the remaining sandstone carvings are excellent

It's a really nice place to visit! Seems to be getting busy though now, so get there before the masses of tourists arrive. It's getting popular.

This is one of the biggest temple complexes we visited on our trip and we tried hard to see all 1058 of them, from the broken down ruins at the bottom of the hill to the freshly renovated stupas and the pagoda at the top. Unless you have not found all the souvenirs you ever wanted to buy, it is... More

Visited as part of a tour group. This was almost our last visit of the day, it was brilliant, so glad we made the walk from our boat. The stupas are all different sizes and in various states of repair, wish we could have spent much longer here. The walk back to our boat took in a very long "... More

This is a small village which we reached by long tail boat from Inle Lake. It is one of the highlights of the area. What I found interesting about the boat trip is that it is UPHILL from Inle lake. Instead of using lift locks, the river is barricaded off in about a dozen places with only a small opening... More
