It is situated in the heart of the Shan plateau and the place is Nyaungshwe Valley, nestled between two mountain ranges that extend north to south and it is 35 kilometres away from the nearest airport ‘Heho’.

The shore and islands of Inle Lake accommodate 17 villages, all of which are on stilts. On the Shan Plateau, the Intha people have developed an amazing culture as their farming and fishing skills attest.
