Inle Lake (Nga Phe Kyaung OR Jumping cat Monastery) #11

This is our last destination of the tour. We arrived there about 4pm. It is an old monastery where you can a lot of antique Buddha statues and of course cats.  As you might heard of this monastery where cats are trained to jump through the hoop. According to Tripadvisor' reveiw,  there is no cat show anymore because the head monk passed away. 

When we arrived, most of the cats were sleeping. It was very dark inside and hard to take photography with available light. Some tourists are waiting for the show but there was no show until I spoke to the monk and donated cash for cat food. I think they should have schedule the show times so that tourists who come here from very far won't miss the show. 

There are about 15 cats laying around the monastery. Only 2 cats can jump professionally. I hope that they are fed well even there is no show. 

So poor cat. I cannot imagine how he eat. 

He needs more training. :)

She is Pro. 

He has no confidence. 

Show just finished but not everyone has food. :(

Outside the monastery, there is an amazing view to the tomato farm with mountains at the background. Tourists sit back and enjoy the view.

Anyone knows what is these eggs?  They are plenty everywhere around the monastery. 

Green Tomatos. 

Bye Bye Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery.
