Putao

A visit to the completely isolated Putao region is a wonderful addition to any trip to Myanmar, offering a glimpse of undisturbed nature that few travelers ever see. Inhabited by the Hkamti Shan people, the region was once known as Hkamti Long, or "great place of gold", and borders both China and India. Because of the incredibly mountainous terrain, little to no infrastructure links Putao with the rest of the world.

The climate of the region is highly diverse, ranging from subtropical valleys to alpine peaks, creating lush biodiversity perfect for eco-travel. Favorite sights and activities include hiking or biking through the diverse landscape and varied climes of Hkakabo Razi National Park; birdwatching in the Putao Valley; and rafting the exciting, dynamic Nam Lang River.
