After breakfast, visit the daily market on the lake, which rotates every five days between villages surrounding the lake. Proceed to Inthar Heritage House, which serves as a restaurant, vocational training center, organic garden and even a home for Burmese cats.
After a welcome drink (Shan tea, fresh juices), the staffs will show you the cooking area. Next the chef will present you the menu, give details about the class, ingredients and cooking methods. After this introduction, they will show the vegetable gardens and pick the ingredients for the meal. Back to the kitchen, it’s time to begin preparing a series of traditional Inthar and Burmese dishes. The head chef will explain each step while students from the vocational training centre assist with the cooking. Typical dishes include mint fish soup, long bean salad, fried spring onion and Burmese chicken and potato curry. Once the dishes are prepared, you can sit down and enjoy the meal you just cooked yourself (Coffee/tea and one free soft drink, juice or beer are included).
Then continue by boat to the Western Shore of Inle Lake, where you will find the beginning of a stair path leading to the well hidden Indein complex. Visit one of the most amazing historical sights on the shore of the lake consisting of hundreds of small stupas overgrown by moss and green vegetation.
