Travel Experience

Inle Heritage is a not-for-profit organisation that looks after the cultural and natural heritage of the Inle Region, and helps it grow as a great place to live, work and visit.

Responsibility

Over the last few years, tourism, and growth in other markets, have presented great opportunities, but wit these come threats to the region and its social fabric, livelihoods and environment. Our mission, through heritage work, knowledge sharing and socially responsible business models, is to work with the communities of the Inle Region so that they all benefit from these opportunities and reduce these threats.

Business Case

The best way to support Inle Heritage is to visit us and have a good time. Preserving the heritage of the Inle Region is an ongoing commitment so its funding must be sustainable. We believe heritage efforts will not work in the long run if they are dependent on outside donations. We want visitors to enjoy supporting Inle’s unique cultural and natural identity. So we have set up socially responsible businesses around things you like doing, such as buying locally made arts and crafts, enjoying homemade Inthar cuisine, then learning how to cook it, or staying at our village Bed & Breakfast in the middle of the lake.
