Mystery of Kachin State & The Northern Frontier Towns
Get far away from the normal touristic trail with one of our special tribal tour packages to the intriguing Kachin State.
Fly to Myitkyina, the State’s sleepy capital; head to the countryside where beautiful views abound. Experience the cultural, ethnic and religious diversity before visiting Myitsone, the source of the Irrawaddy River. Extend your trip to Putao, a small and picturesque town in the Himalayan foothills, with a mostly ethnic Kachin and Lisu population. There is Fort Hertz, a remote British Military outpost during the late British colonial era, near Putao. This last frontier town in northern Myanmar will accomodate multiple interests such as hiking, photography and bird-watching etc.
Enjoy travelling through thickly forested canyons with exciting rapids, and enjoy the combination of scenery with introspective spots along the beauty of river banks. Trekking and hiking activities will take you through local settlements where most of the people have never seen a foreigner before. You'll get a glimpse at the real face of tribal communities as you walk through.
