How to get there

The only access to our site on the lake is by boat. We are located along a channel leading to several of the weaving and craft workshops in Innpawkhon Village.

By Plane: Heho airport serves the Inle Region.

By Bus: Take a bus going to Nyaung Shwe. The bus departs from Aung Mingalar bus station in Yangon. It’s at least an hour away from downtown, so make sure to give yourself extra travel time.
