20 images Created 18 Feb 2013

Inle Lake is located in Central Myanmar and it has an approximate area of 115km2. Although the main activity on the lake is fishing, there also are floating tomatoes gardens and some villages.

The lake area has diminished by approximately 30% due to environmental pressures from population growth and tourism. Fishing stock is also collapsing rapidly as chemicals used to grow tomatoes get into the water damaging livestock.
