MYITKYINA -

The capital and largest town of Kachin State is an important trade centre between China and Myanmar. It is an ideal starting point for excursions to tribal villages, jade mines and the Myitsone River confluence, about 40 kilometers north, where two Himalayan streams – Mehka and Malikha – meet to form the mighty Ayeyarwady River. Kachin State is renowned for its scenic natural beauty; from untouched jungle to Mount Hkakaborazi, the highest point in Myanmar at 5,889 meters and climbed for the first time only in 1996. This mountain area in the far north is largely untouched by tourism.
