Life on Inle Lake, Myanmar (part 1)

The people of Inle Lake live in mostly wooden homes resting on stilts.  As they live in and on a lake, the primary mode of transport is these small wooden boats or canoes.

This series of photos highlight the Inle Lake people as they go about their day on the lake – the brightly coloured boats with seats are the tourist boats.

  3. Stilt villages are awesome but I’m guessing that there is no sanitation service and that water scares the hell out of me.

    • I certainly wouldn’t be drinking it and I think falling in you’d be best advised to keep your mouth closed. The lake it under considerable environmental threat and there are measures currently in place to try to reduce the impact of humans, introduced species and global change on the lake.
