Bagan to Inle Lake

7 of us will be in Bagan and want to go to Inle Lake, we've decided - rightly or wrongly - to take the JJ bus, but when trying to book it I can find "Bagan" but not "Inle" - Is the stop at Taunggyi at Inle Lake? If not, how far more is it and how do we get there? Confused......

Help please!

You jumped off the Bus as you arrived ShweNyaung then to Nyaung Shwe :P

There are some direct buses and van between Bagan and Nyaung Shwe. As SS said above, Inle lake is a lake for Nyaung Shwe Town in Southern Shan State (SSS). Meanwhile, Taunggyi is the capital of SSS.

Hope you get it. :P

Take care

Usually the ticket includes the transfer by small van from Shwe Nyaung to Nyaung Shwe. Our small van was waiting for us when we arrived. I found that the JJ Express was very comfortable and safe driver.
