Set among Myannmar’s mountainous landscape, Nyaung Shwe is the laid-back town close to the scenic Inle Lake. Its proximity to the country’s second largest lake makes Nyaung Shwe the perfect gateway to exploring this area’s stunning natural beauty.

Next to the main canal, this rustic town leads down to the lake’s north end where you can cycle along the shore and discover floating villages, gardens and the renowned fisherman. Delve further into the region with treks through the enveloping rice fields, hills and villages before unearthing indigenous villages and markets.

Nyuang Shwe itself is home to the bustling Mingala Market filled with locals and traders selling fresh fish and local daily objects such as spears and machetes. Meanwhile, the Buddha Museum and the golden Yadana Man Aung Paya shrine offer local spiritual experiences.

When to go

The weather is generally cool with September and October being the drier months and also when the Phaungdawoo Festival takes place.
