Inle Lake, is a freshwater lake located in the heart of Shan Plateau. It is the second largest lake, after Indawgyi Lake from Kachin State in Myanmar with an estimated surface area of 44.9 square miles (116 km2), and one of the highest at an elevation of 2,900 feet (880 m). The Lake is inhabited by many different ethnic nationals of the area. The Intha people are the Lake dwellers who are unique for their leg rowing. Leg rowed traditional boats are the main ceremonial attractions of the Inlay Lake. Although the lake is not large, it contains a number of endemic species. Over twenty species of snails and nine species of fish are found nowhere else in the world.
As the lake is close to the Taunggyi, the capital of Shan State, it is easily accessible by airways, railways & motor ways. Pindaya caves, a Buddhist pilgrimage site and a tourist attraction located on a limestone ridge in the Myelat region is a famous nearby attraction of Inle Lake.
