When we reached Inle Lake on a boat at 06:30 am, the dark grey, mirror-like surface of the water was merging with the misty horizon. The elusive shapes of the fishermen came into view. Them rowing their boats with one leg contributed to making the lake a legend. This technique allows them to throw / pull their nets with both hands. The rising sun added a red yellowish touch to this surreal atmosphere….
It was this amazing atmosphere that made us repeat this trip again and again… In total three times. Apart from these stunning early hours out on the lake, there is a lot to discover on and around Inle Lake!
