Lashio is a trading town set in a mountain basin 855 meters above sea level and inhabited mostly by ethnic Shan-Chinese and Chinese, due to its proximity to the Sino-Myanmar border. The town is located at the southern end of the famous Burma Road. Mya Kantha Hill in the northern part of town offers good views of the city. The steady traffic at Myanmar’s largest Chinese temple, dedicated to the goddess of mercy, Quan Yin, is testament to Lashio’s strong Chinese population.
