    Meal: N/A.

    Day 2:  Naung Shwe – Kakku
    After breakfast at your hotel, leave for Kakku on a 2-hour drive. Stop at Taung Gyi for a short visit en-route then head into the rolling hills toward the east of the lake. The drive is spectacular, crossing over the railway line and through small villages inhabited to the Pa-Oh people. This area was closed to visitors for many years and even now only a few intrepid tourists make their way through here.
    The first view of Kakku is breathtaking: there are more than 5200 individual stupas, some of which are 20 meters high, and several Buddha images scattered throughout. There are no clear facts about the history of the stupas but most date back to the 11th-13th century, the same period when Bagan was thriving. Wander throughout the temples, taking your time to enjoy the wonder and awe of this site and discover the intricate carvings and details on the structures.
    Late afternoon, back to Naung Shwe
    Meal: Breakfast.
    Accommodation: Hotel in Naung Shwe
    Day 3: Inle Lake Discovery
    This morning, you will visit the 5 days market which is hold in different villages surround the lake. This is definitely a fascinating place to enjoy the scene of local tribes in their colorful clothes and exotic market atmosphere.
    Then, take a sightseeing tour to Phaungdawoo Pagoda, famed for its richly gilded five small Buddha images and believed to be the holiest pagoda in Inle Lake. Our next stop is Ngaphechaung Monastery, known as “Jumping Cat Pagoda”. As you travel closer to Nam Pan Village, have a look at cotton and lotus weaving factories and cigar making houses. These sites will give you a true sense of traditional Intha life.
    After lunch, the boat will take you to the beautiful temple of Indein, located on the hill overlooking the lake. It is relaxing to walk along the corridors and enjoy the giant columns that have been left to the nature for centuries.
    Transfer by boat to your resort on the lake. Check-in and admire the sunset from here.
    Meals: Breakfast.
    Accommodation: Hotel in Inle Lake  
    Day 4: Inle Lake – Sagar – Inle Lake
    Today, we venture to Sagar, located in the Deep South. The boat journey takes 2.5-3 hours but is full of fabulous views and home to many unique species of birds, both indigenous and migratory. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
    The area is so far protected and administered by PNO (Pa O National Organization). You may be granted to visit the village of Pa o, Shan and Intha people, to interact with the locals and discover its culture.
    The main highlight for many travelers are the ‘sunken’ stupas of Sagar – 108 stupas from the 16-17th centuries. Another stop will be made in Sae Khaung Pottery Village to see the crafting of oil and water pots as well as the natural, underground kilns used by the villagers. On the western shores of the Sagar area is Tar Kaung, a series of more than 200 stupas which also make a fabulous photo stop. Lunch will be arranged along the way (either picnic lunch or local lunch at a small restaurant). Late afternoon, enjoy the beautiful sunset while cruising along the stilt villages back to your resort.
    Meal: Breakfast, Lunch.
    Accommodation: Hotel in Inle Lake
