Putao—the only snow land of Southeast Asia is situated in the north part of Myanmar. Due to remoteness and being isolated region, the region becomes rich in flora and fauna, which create plenty of opportunities for the tourists to explore the region. Mt Khakaborazi (5881 m), the highest mountain in southeast Asia, lying on the northern Putao, is challenging the mountaineers and outdoor men. Crystal clean water flowing from the snow-capped mountains of Myanmar Himalayas is offering the adventure seekers the only white-water rafting service of Myanmar.

Day 01 (Putao 451 meters)

putao-05Just as you arrive at the Putao airport, your guide will greet and transfer you to Putao Guest house. After refreshment, your guide will take you to explore the scenic beauty of Putao, formally known as Fort Hertz and its ethnic groups’ living style by walking in and around the town. The town itself lies on small plane hill and is the most peaceful in northern Myanmar. Being isolated area, the region is rich in biodiversity-flora and fauna and it’s the least visited area by the tourist.



Day 02 (Namtunkhoo, Lisu Village)

Then trek through dense subtropical forest with the dramatic ascending trail and you will reach the peak of 680 meters after 2 hours of trekking. From the peak the challenging descending trail will lead you to the paddy field of Namtunkhoo village. You will enjoy the scenic beauty of the village and the nature from the open paddy field, then walk to the village for about one hour. (approximate trekking hour : 5). 



Day 03 (Namtunkhoo to Mulashide)

After breakfast you will keep on trekking another beautiful trail leading to Mulashidi village. The first three hours of trekking you will trek through giant bamboo groves with up- hill of Namtunkhoo Hill of 700 meters, after reaching the peak the terrain will be so gentle descending trail that you can have the spectacular view of the blazing snow-capped mountains, especially prominent Mt Luncrumadim (3500 meter) from some spots. When the trail ends up, the awaiting jeep will drive you to Mulashidi village. After exploring the village you will drive back to Putao. (Approximate walking hour: 4)

Day 05 (Putao – Airport for departure)
