Inle Lake Day 4 - Kakku

Today we took a very long and bumpy drive to Kakku, where there is a famous group of 2,478 pagodas.

Once we got there it was pretty and peaceful but boy what a long way to go.

After lunch we meandered through a local village with our guide for Kakku, a young man from a local tribe.

On the way home we stopped at a winery for some tasting. The vineyard was pretty but the wine was horrid. Stick to beer here.

Inle Day 3

This morning we hopped on the longboat again and headed across the lake for another village and Pagoda, quite far away. It was cold and we all huddled under our blankets hunkered low in our chairs. We use the life jackets to cushion our backs!

By the time we reached the village the sun was shining brightly. We spent about an hour meandering through the local market, shopping and then stopping for some tea and  samosas. 

Following our market trip we went across the bridge to see the pagodas. 1,054 of them to be exact. Very cool. 

Lunch followed. I had the best noodle dish so far. Green Beans sliced paper thin, carrots, fried noodles and bits of chicken.
