During the month of Thadingyut, four of the five Buddha images resident in Phaung Daw U Pagoda make a grand circuit of Inle Lake’s villages, taking eighteen days to complete the tour.

Loaded onto a golden barge built especially for the occasion, the four Buddha images make the slow trip, towed by boats rowed by Inle Lake’s famous leg-rowers. The barge tours the lake in a clockwise direction, with the four Buddha images spending each night in a different town monastery.
