Putao Surrounded by Natural Scenic Beauty

Kachin State is situated in northern and north-eastern parts of Myanmar and abounds in mountain ranges. This region is full of natural beauty, mountains, streams and rivers. One of the 12 biggest rivers in the world,the Ayeyarwaddy is formed by the confluence of MayKha and Malika Rivers in Kachin State. The extreme northern city of Myanmar is Putao. It is 218 miles north of Myitkyina. Putao has been seat of government for ages. It is a well-planned city.

If you look to the west, north and east of Putao, you can see snow-capped mountains, which are over 10,000 feet. These snow-capped mountains are the eastern most ranges of the Himalayas. The area of Putao District is 11,916 sq miles and it is 1,342 feet above sea level.

Mostly Pawang, Lisu, Khamti Shan and Jingphaw nationals live in Putao and Bamar and Kachin nationals also live there. There, it is cool the whole year round and there are many varieties of citrus fruit orchards. Putao market is always busy doing brisk business in regional products and produce such as vegetables, traditional food, hand-made clothing, medicinal plants and roots and fruits.

Another noted place in Putao is Khakaborazi National Park. You can study flora and fauna of home to Myanmar. There, you can also study the orchid displays with a collection of over 50 local orchid species.

When you arrive at Putao, the place you should visit is Mulashidi village 8 miles from Putao. On the way to the village, there are lovely traditional houses along the road. Mostly Lisu nationals live in Mulashidi village. The significance of the village is Mulashidi suspension bridge built over Mula River. It is 200 feet long and 6 feet wide and made of steel cables. Water flowing in the Mula River under the bridge is clear and cool because of melting ice from the mountains.

Especially, traditions consolidate to date in the region and natural beauty remains intact in the region. I'd like to invite you to experience customs tradition and hospitality of local people and enjoying the beauty of nature of Kachin State.
