After lunch, we continue our journey to PEKON
. Admire the picturesque scenery of the Shan mountains and valleys flanking the tranquil waters on boat side of this lake. It would be a memorial experience for you to explore unspoiled villages and beautiful nature, this is the ‘real’ Inle Lake that few tourists rarely get to see.
