  floating garden agriculture

 

Myanmar

Living in stilt-houses on the water, the Intha people on Inle Lake (fig.) in central Myanmar's Shan State, have specialized in floating garden agriculture.

 

However, over time, the floating beds become solid ground and as such the practice encroaches upon the lake's area, diminishing its size.
