Balcarce grill

Inle Lake's fishermen have developed the ability to paddle using one leg, while handling fishing nets with their hands hand. All this is done on the rear end of unstable wooden canoes. The highest concentration of fishermen on Lake Inle usually occurs near the entrance to the main channel of Nyaunshwe: Nan Chaung). There also tends to be quite a few fishermen on the west coast of Lake Inle. Inle Lake fishermen use several fishing techniques. One of them uses nets in a conical shape, in another traditional nets. Hitting the water with their oars trying to direct the fish into nets.

Reflection

As the sun rises we wake, the smell of smoke fills the air, the faint sounds of boat motors in the distance. As we set off on a tour of the lake. The beauty of the water, its so still. It's as if we are slicing through glass. As we putt along our boat motor drowns out all other noise and as we come to a stop to watch a local fisherman catch fish for the day our driver shuts the motor off. Peace, quiet. Silence.

Inle lake

Traveling in Myanmar, we agreed on the visit to Inle Lake with a traditional festival in which the people set sail with their traditional boats. I was surprised by the colors and the smiles of the people and landscape of the place, a place not to be missed by anyone traveling to a country as beautiful as Myanmar.

The lake is inhabited by "Intha" which means children of the lake. Around is surrounded by mountains inhabited by tribes Pa-0. The villages of these tribes are made up of piles located on the banks and some other islands in the middle of the lake. Their means of transport are small boats they use to travel. These people are known to have a special and unique navigation technology. To move the boat on water are force with a particular movement of the leg and hip on the oar while standing at the stern of the boat. The Intha are very good fishermen use to catch the big pots that are lying on the bottom and inside of which push the fish beating the waters. A special feature of the lake are the gardens and floating gardens, created in places where the water is shallow. He gasps to see these small and thin people act with extreme lightness of these floating islands suspended in water, without falling and losing his balance. The various types of flowers and vegetables grown are sold in the markets of the regions. In the evening, the lake becomes very attractive, lit by small torches of light. In the state of Myanmar in the evening is removed to minimize power consumption and by the provisions of state. So not everyone has the opportunity to have an electric generator in their homes.

Il lago inle

Il Lago Inle è un lago molto caratteristico situato nello stato del Myanmar.
Si trova ad un’altezza di 900m, lungo 22 km e largo 10, con una profondità massima di 3 m.
Il lago è interamente abitato dalla popolazione "Intha", che significa bambini del lago.

Attorno è circondato dalle montagne abitate dalle tribù Pa-0.
I villaggi di queste tribù sono costituite da palafitte dislocate alcune sulle rive e altre su isole in mezzo al lago.
Il loro mezzo di trasporto sono delle piccole imbarcazioni che utilizzano per gli spostamenti .
Queste popolazione sono note perché hanno una particolare e unica tecnica di navigazione.

Per far muovere l’imbarcazione sull’acqua fanno forza con un movimento particolare della gamba e dell’anca sul remo stando in piedi a poppa della barca.
Gli Intha sono dei bravissimi pescatori , utilizzano per pescare delle grosse nasse che vengono adagiate sul fondo e all’interno delle quali spingono il pesce battendo le acque.
Una particolarità del lago sono i giardini e gli orti galleggianti, creati nei punti dove le acque sono poco profonde.
Si rimane a bocca aperta a vedere questi piccoli ed esili abitanti muoversi con estrema leggerezza su queste isole galleggianti sospese nelle acque, senza cadere e perdere l’equilibrio.
I vari tipi di fiori e ortaggi coltivati vengono venduti presso i mercati delle regioni.
Di sera il lago diventa molto suggestivo , illuminato da piccole fiaccole di luce.
Nello stato del Myanmar la sera viene tolta la corrente elettrica per minimizzare il consumo e per via delle disposizioni di stato.
Quindi non tutti hanno la possibilità di avere un generatore elettrico nelle proprie abitazioni.
La gente del luogo è cordiale e gentile, ti accoglie sempre con un sorriso e uno sguardo curioso.
Sulle rive del lago è possibile trascorrere un piacevolissimo soggiorno.

Exotic and picturesque

Inle Lake is a mecca of tourism in Burma. Villages that populate its surroundings are very picturesque. Craft activities remain there thanks to the influx of visitors: cigar, weaving silk and fiber lotus. Aboriginal Intha grow their particularities. Fishermen on the lake, they use a leg to row; farmers, they created floating gardens grow vegetables and flowers. Whole lake life animate the banks with houses on stilts that create an exotic decor breathtaking. Returning to school by canoe, cultivating his garden from his boat floating: a single lifetime oh! exotic.

Exotique et pittoresque

Le Lac Inle est un haut lieu du tourisme en Birmanie. Les villages qui peuplent ses environs sont très pittoresques. Les activités artisanales s'y maintiennent grâce aussi à l'afflux des visiteurs : fabriques de cigares, ateliers de tissage de soie et de fibre de lotus. Les Intha autochtones cultivent leurs particularismes. Pêcheurs sur le lac, ils utilisent une jambe pour ramer ; cultivateurs, ils ont créé des jardins flottants où croissent légumes et fleurs. Toute une vie lacustre animent les rives avec des maisons sur pilotis qui créent un décor d'un exotisme à couper le souffle. On revient de l'école en pirogue, on cultive son jardin flottant depuis sa barque : toute une vie simple oh combien ! dépaysante.

Un des pôles touristiques de la Birmanie. Beauté des paysages, abondance des hébergements, villages lacustres, douceur du climat d'altitude. Le pêcheur Intha constitue une image traditionnelle de carte postale. Mais, modernisme venant, il troque souvent son longyi pour un jean. Quant à la nasse dans laquelle ses ancêtres piégeaient le poisson, elle a fait place à de modernes filets. Autre particularisme du lac : les jardins flottants. On y cultive des tomates, exportées dans tout le pays, et aussi des fleurs. Cette activité horticole couvre des hectares.

Besides hiking around, you can walk around the lake, watching Intha fisherman rowing in a circular foot, visiting monasteries and local crafts. The traditional weaving of silk is a very interesting, a tradition that is passed from mother to daughter, each village with its characteristics and different reasons. It's amazing how fast your routine, like run the machines at full speed and still get something fine and beautiful. Men who do not fish engaged forge iron, and if you come home directly after your trip, you can buy beautiful objects, lamps or wrought iron mirrors for your home. Another thing that is done by hand, cigars, which have good reputation but did not try, the women prepare sheets of dry snuff. You'll also find jewelry, and souvenirs from the lake region.

El lago de Inle es un magnífico lago de Myanmar, de un color azul muy particular, que seguro te encantará. A parte de hacer excursiones a su alrededor, también puedes pasear por el lago, viendo como los pescadores Intha reman con un movimiento circular del pie, visitando monasterios y locales de artesanías.

El tejido tradicional de la seda es un procedimiento muy interesante, una tradición que se transmite de madre a hija, cada pueblo con sus características y motivos distintos. Es impresionante la rapidez de su rutina, como manejan las máquinas a toda velocidad y aún así sale algo fino y bonito.

Los hombres que no pescan se dedican a forjar el hierro, y si vuelves a casa directamente después de tu viaje, podrás comprar precioso objetos, lámparas o espejos de hierro forjado para tu hogar.

Otra cosa que se hace a mano, los cigarros, que tienen buena reputación pero no los probé, los preparan las mujeres con hojas de tabaco seco.

It is one of the wonders of myanmar

Stretching 22km long and 11km wide, is situated 875m above sea level, there are around 17 villages built on stilts in the lake inhabited by the Intha. This is a restricted area so you need to pay to enter the village 5USD. The population eminently farmers have their rice growing areas and wetlands bordering the lake. I also find several Buddhist kyaung and stupas. To explore the lake area there are several options, the most common and easiest way is by renting a boat for a tour of the lake. This option is good if the lake has enough water to penetrate and reach the villages on stilts. You will not have any problem to rent the boat, as there are hundreds, once the people walking through the many riverside boat owners and sellers closer to Present yourselves you traveled. Another option was the one I chose, is the bike for the freedom to move anywhere you like, it is very cheap and you can rent them crossing rice fields and roads, but requires some fitness. You have to stop you at any of the people that are in the lake. Following the main road leads to a town, and an exit to the right of the road leads to a long pier. At the end of it you have to take a boat to get to the houses. The paddle system is really curious inhabitants as they do standing up in the boat, moving the oar with one leg and holding it with your other hand.

Es una de las maravillas de myanmar

Con una extensión de 22km de largo y 11km de ancho está situado a 875m sobre el nivel del mar, a su alrededor hay 17 aldeas construidas sobre pilares en el lago habitadas por los intha.

Se trata de una zona reservada así que es necesario pagar a la entrada del pueblo 5USD. La población eminentemente agricultores tienen sus zonas de cultivo y arrozales pantanosos bordeando el lago. También os encontraréis varias kyaung budistas y stupas.

Para recorrer la zona del lago hay varias opciones, la más habitual y sencilla es alquilando una barca que hace un recorrido por el lago. Esta opción es buena siempre que el lago tenga suficiente agua para adentrarse y llegar a las aldeas sobre pilares. No tendréis ningún problema para alquilar la barca, ya que hay cientos, una vez en el pueblo paseando por las orillas del río multitud de propietarios de barcas y vendedores se os acercarán para ofreceos recorridos. Otra opción, fue la que yo elegí, es la bicicleta por la libertad de moverte por donde quieras, es muy barato alquilarlas y te permite recorriendo los campos de arroz y caminos, aunque exige cierta condición física.

Tenéis que deteneros en alguno de los pueblos que hay en el lago. Siguiendo la carretera principal se llega a un pueblo, y en una salida a la derecha de la carretera se llega a un largo embarcadero. Al final de éste hay que coger una barca para llegar a las casas. El sistema de remo de sus habitantes es realmente curioso ya que lo hacen poniéndose de pie en la barca, moviendo el remo con una pierna y sujetándolo con otra mano.

If you have the chance to go to myanm...

If you have the chance to go to Myanmar (formerly Burma) do not miss this place! The 17 towns and villages on stilts rather found on the shores of the lake (22 km long and 11 wide) or on islands are inhabited by the Intha are around 70,000. The Inthas have the particularity to move on the lake by manipulating a sort of sculling with one foot while standing on the other! (Take a look at one of the photos and you will more easily an idea of ​​the thing). Unfortunately for tradition, motor boats gradually replaced this technique probably unique. Conical nets to fish is another feature of this lake.

Si vous avez la chance d'aller au Myanmar ( ex Birmanie ) ne manquez surtout pas cet endroit ! Les 17 villes ou plutôt villages sur pilotis qui se trouvent sur les rives du lac ( 22 km de long pour 11 de large ) ou sur des îles sont habités par les Inthas qui sont environs 70 000 .
Les Inthas ont la particularité de se déplacer sur le lac en manoeuvrant une sorte de godille à l'aide d'un pied tout en se tenant debout sur l'autre ! ( jeter un œil sur une des photos et vous vous ferez plus facilement une idée de la chose ) .
Malheureusement pour la tradition , les bateaux à moteurs remplacent peu à peu cette technique sans doute unique au monde .
Les nasses coniques pour pêcher sont une autre particularité de ce lac .

If i have to stay with a special corn...

If I have to stay with a special corner I decide Inle Lake in Myanmar. In its 11 km long emerge different peoples who have been stuck in another era. All are artisans who specialize in a particular activity (textiles, shipbuilding, blacksmiths ...) trading between them. The houses are teak stilt houses and their inhabitants have developed a technique that allows the foot paddle while fishing.

Si me tengo que quedar con un rincón especial me decido por el lago Inle en Myanmar.

En sus 11 kilómetros de largo emergen diferentes pueblos que se han quedado anclados en otra época. Todos son artesanos y se especializan en una actividad concreta (textiles, astilleros, herreros... ) comerciando entre ellos.

Las casas son palafitos de madera de teca y sus habitantes han desarrollado una técnica que les permite remar con el pie mientras pescan.
