Today leave Bagan and drive (approx 4 hrs) to Mandalay, the last royal city of Myanmar Kingdom. On arrival in Mandalay, we will visit the holy Sagaing Hill, the hub of Buddhism in Myanmar. Take time to visit Swan Oo Pon Nya Shin and U Min Thone Sae Pagodas as well as clay pot making and nunnery to learn the daily life of Buddhist nuns. Enjoy sunset at U Bein, the world’s longest teak bridge stretching close to 1200 meters across Taungthaman Lake.

In the afternoon, continue the tour of Mandalay with a visit to the Shwenandaw Monastery– noted for its exquisite woodcarvings, Gold Leaf Pounding Workshop and Kuthodaw Pagoda – known for containing the world’s largest book.

Stay overnight in Mandalay.
Transfer to the airport and short flight to Heho. Upon arrival at Heho, proceed by road to Pindaya. The road to Pindaya cuts across one of the most densely farmed areas in Myanmar – at first glance, the patchwork of fields and hedges could almost be a landscape from central Europe or middle America. Visit Pindaya Limestone cave, unique for the about nine thousand Buddha images placed there by pilgrims over many centuries. We will visit a small family-run umbrella making workshop and then continue to Nyaung Shwe, the gateway of Inle Lake.
Stay overnight on the Lake.
Full-day tour of beautiful Inle Lake which is referred as the Venice of Asia, featuring stilt houses and villages, floating gardens, fishermen using ancient techniques such as leg-rowing, and, on the shores, workshops of traditional artisans, e.g. weavers and cigar-makers. We will visit Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, Nga Phe Chaung Monastery and the local family workshops which feature silversmiths, cheroot making, and weaving by the ‘Ring-neck ladies’.
After lunch, continue your exploration to the western banks of the lake and travel down a small canal to Indein – a Pa-Oh village which is known for its stupa-covered hill with 1,054 stupas constructed between the 17th and the 18th centuries. Spend time exploring Indein on foot, strolling around the village, visiting a local school and making your way to the top of the hill where you can wander amid the weather-beaten stupas and enjoy magnificent views of the lake below.
