Dancing Fisherman

The fishermen from Inle Lake are dancing while they fishing. It is because of their curious and unique rowing style. Inle fishermen standing on one leg on the extreme of the boat and wrapping their other leg around the the oar. Such art of fishing can be seen in Inle Lake of Myanmar.The locals, known as Inthas, learn to fish from the age of 13 together with how to dance their traditional Intha Dance. You can only find this moment in Inle Lake and nowhere else in the world.
