Picture post (Post 4) Sagar on the banks of the Beluo Chaung, Inle Lake Burma by David Keegan 2015

Sagar on the banks of the Beluo Chaung river, Burma.

Sagar, originally part of the Shan state once ruled by the Sabwas people, ruthlessly eliminated by the Burmese military dictator Ne Win  who took power not long after the end of the second world war and is largely responsible for the destruction of Burma. The village itself is now little more than a crumbling, yet friendly, place reached by boat from Nyaung Shwe and taking around two and a half to 3 hours to reach. It is nonetheless a fascinating and worthwhile place to visit.
