“A short flight takes us to Heho, and we’ll journey into Inle Lake the best way possible: by bike! As you arrive your two wheels are waiting and we’ll start a leisurely 4-hour biking trip down to Indein. Today isn’t technical, however we ride mostly off-road, and the majority of the roads are flat or downhill after we get through a few uphill portions in the beginning.
Today’s highlight is passing through numerous Pa O villages in an area where few visitors go - a great experience for our intrepid selves!
We have time to stop on the way to enjoy the fantastic views over the lake and the Shan countryside. Lunch will be in a local village and we’ll end the cycling portion and explore the ancient ruins of Indein. From there, we continue by boat to the lodge, where your luggage is waiting in your room.
View Point Lodge sits on the edge of the canal leading to the magnificent Inle Lake and reflects the beauty of its name. The scenic surroundings include the canal entering the lake on one side and rice paddies on the other, all overlooking the highest mountains in the region. The Lodge is walking distance to the village of Nyaung Shwe.
Cottage Suites are built on pilings using traditional Shan construction. The Lodge and cottages are built with local limestone, mud and rice straw, and reinforced with wooden beams. Only paints made from laterite mud and natural wax decorate the Lodge. Using traditional materials does not mean compromising comforts as all suites have modern bathrooms, WiFi and LCD TV. The Lodge blends the best of the Shan traditions and the needs of modern travelers.”
