Only the bravest travellers explore the hills of this remote and rural region, the least developed of the three regions.
Explore the picturesque Shan and Palaung villages from the charming and peaceful town of Hsipaw, the ancient royal city; enjoy the descent of the Ayeyarwady River – also known as Irrawaddy - and then visit the pearl of the extreme north of the country: Putao.
Be sure to take a cruise to the mystical Shwe Myitsu Pagoda, followed by a trip to Indawgyi Lake. Admire the colonial architecture of Pyin Oo Lwin, the former capital of British Burma, then take the rickety train across the impressive Gokteik Viaduct, Myanmar’s highest railway bridge.
