14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
a unique art of fishing

Inle Lake in Myanmar which is a Unesco heritage site is also the home of thousands of Burmese. All the daily activities such as trading,agriculture,shopping etc. happen in the lake only and fishing is one of the major source of income of these residents. And they are still following the very traditional way of the fishing in which fisherman stands on the Boat by one leg and uses another for rowing the boat. Since water of the lake is shallow so they uses a cage to encircle the fish in it .
