Giving back to community in Myanmar’s Inle Lake region

Asian Trails Myanmar has a 3-day programme that combines exploration of the Inle Lake region and helping local villagers build a bamboo hut.

The experience starts with the boat ride to Inle Lake to watch the famous Inntha leg rowers. Activities include visits to local markets and ancient pagodas including the famous 18th century Phaungdaw Oo Pagoda. The highlight is helping to build a bamboo hut.

Working with carpenters, participants carry out tasks including sawing bamboo, erecting posts and tying the thatch. Witness the house warming ritual ceremony when the keys are handed to the recipient family of the donation.
