What to explore at Kaylar Village?

The Intha people who live on Inle Lake have an unusual way of getting their recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables. Over the generations they have learned to bundle together the weeds, lake reeds and water hyacinth detritus that floats to the lake’s edges into long and compact strips of floating turf, which they top with soil from the lake bottom and then plant with squash, tomatoes, peas, and other things. To keep the fertile little islands from drifting away, long bamboo poles anchor them to the lake bottom.
