There are mountains in Kachin State which are permanently snow capped throughout the year. In 2011, Burmese business tycoon Tay Za had scrapped the plan to build a ski Resort there to preserve the environment and nature."
Beautiful scenery, snow capped mountains, and a fantastic view of the beginning of the Ayeyarwaddy river draw tourists as well as photographers and video producers to the Putao region. For those folks interested in unspoiled beauty of nature and trekking, Putao is truly a dream that comes true.
Welcome to Northern-most part of Myanmar where winter snow melts from the Himalaya range of mountains, and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy river begins its long and timeless journey across Myanmar.
The only way to reach the unreachable part of Myanmar for a tourist is to go through a Myanmar Travel Agency such as Asia Pearl Travels, where we can apply for the necessary paper work.
Book a trekking house in Putao for food, lodging, and trekking guides.
