DESCRIPTION

Cool mountain air and crystal clear rivers fed by Himalayan snowmelt. Pristine jungle scenes framed by snow-capped mountain vistas. Friendly locals of the Lisu, Rawang and Shan ethnic groups living as they have done for centuries. Putao is one of Myanmar's last frontiers and an 'off-the-map' destination that shouldn't be missed!
