Northern Burma

Visit Northern Burma

Introduction

Kachin State, Burma's northernmost state, is a region that has remained largely untouched due to the powerful geographical barrier of the Himalayas to the north. It's a world of hidden villages, trickling tributaries, sheer cliffs, rich forests and impossibly beautiful landscapes: a perfect base from which to explore some of Burma's most remote and rarely seen countryside.
