PowerPoint Presentation: Myanmar 61 INLE LAKE PowerPoint Presentation: Inle Lake is found in the Shan State in a valley surrounded by lush green mountains. The lake is freshwater and is home to around 70,000 people who mostly survive through fishing and farming. PowerPoint Presentation: The nearest airport is Heho Airport which is 35 km away. There are flights from both Yangon and Mandalay. Yangon is 660 km away by road, Mandalay 330 km. PowerPoint Presentation: Inle Lake is in the heart of Shan State, which has been the location of much of the civil and political strife over the last two decades. Political imprisonments and disappearances are common. Nyaung Shwe is a small town at the north end of Inle Lake. One can take a walk to nearby villages and countryside and find the ruins of the old monasteries. Yadana Man Aung pagoda PowerPoint Presentation: Yadana Man Aung pagoda PowerPoint Presentation: Yadana Man Aung Pagoda is situated in Nyaung Shwe.

PowerPoint Presentation: Floating village PowerPoint Presentation: Golden Island Cottages Hotel PowerPoint Presentation: Golden Island Cottages Hotel PowerPoint Presentation: Iwama village, Padaung women PowerPoint Presentation: The Kayan are a subgroup of the Red Karen people, a Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Myanmar. The Kayan consists of the following groups: Kayan Lahwi (also called Padaung), Kayan Ka Khaung (Gekho), Kayan Lahta, Kayan Ka Ngan. Kayan Gebar, Kayan Kakhi and, sometimes, Bwe people (Kayaw). PowerPoint Presentation: Padaung (Yan Pa Doung) is a Shan term for the Kayan Lahwi (the group whose women wear the brass neck coils). The Kayan resident in Mae Hong Son Province in Northern Thailand refer to themselves as Kayan and object to being called Padaung. PowerPoint Presentation: In the late 1980s and early 1990s due to conflict with the military regime in Burma, many Kayan tribes fled to the Thai border area. Among the refugee camps set up there was a Long Neck section, which became a tourist site, self-sufficient on tourist revenue and not needing financial assistance. PowerPoint Presentation: One of the most striking of ethnic groups is the long necked Padaung nationals living in the Shan State. Their unique attractiveness is their well acclaimed brass rings on the women's necks. PowerPoint Presentation: There are two  kinds of Padaung- one puts rings on women's necks called "long-necked Padaungs" and the other, without rings on women's necks called "short necked Padaungs." PowerPoint Presentation: Interesting to note is how Padaung women put the rings on their necks, a tradition passed down from their great grand parents to this day. PowerPoint Presentation: At the early age of five or six years, the spiral brass rings are put around the Padaung girl's neck. More neck rings are added every four years, up to nine times until the age of (45). PowerPoint Presentation: The Padaungs live in a single house or hut, and most of them are farmers and hunters. PowerPoint Presentation: There are still many Padaung women “stuck” in Burma, although they live in areas of the country deemed “unsafe” for tourists to travel. PowerPoint Presentation: Unlike normal accessories, these rings are for life and may only be removed with the direst of results. Adultery among Padaung women has always been punished by the removal of the rings, a fate almost literally, worse than death. This is an unusually cruel punishment as the cervical vertebrae has become deformed after years of wearing the rings, and the neck muscles have atrophied. Unless she wishes to risk suffocation the unfortunate wife must pay for the infidelity by spending the rest of her life lying down or try to find some other artificial support for her neck PowerPoint Presentation: Bronze and silver bracelets also cover the womens legs and arms, a custom likely to remain. PowerPoint Presentation: The neck rings however, may very well become extinct within a generation or two as younger Padaung women are beginning to refuse to fit the rings around their children's necks. PowerPoint Presentation: By the last round, the rings will weigh about (5) kg. This custom of neck rings has attracted a great deal of interest.
