Inle Lake Balloon Flight

Enhance your side trip (or tours from the UK) to Inle Lake with an exhilarating very early morning hot air balloon flight which lasts for 45 minutes to one hour, depending on the wind.

Your day begins early as you are collected from your hotel and then transported by boat across Inle Lake to one of the launch sites, just as the early morning mist adds surreal vistas. Your flight will reveal to you the lake, mountains, marshes and stilt-house villages. Watch also as the lake comes to life with the motorised canoes transporting visitors along the main canal, or Intha fishermen majestically rowing their flat-bottomed skiffs with one leg as they cast their nets. The wind may take you over one of the markets that rotate around the towns and villages bordering the lake, or perhaps over one of Inle’s famous festivals. You could travel across the bird sanctuary, rich in wildfowl, over teak monasteries, or even to Ywama village with its tall teak stilted houses and its famous floating market. Perhaps then on to the hot springs of Kaung Daing, or to Maing Thauk with its wooden bridge which joins the land-based half of the village with its stilthouse water-based half.
