Putao

Putao is a town in the far north of the Kachin state surrounded by snow-peaked mountains. The highlands north of Putao are considered one of the most pristine Himalayan environments in Asia and could become a major ecotourism destination. It is the nearest town to the base camp for climbing Mt. Hkakaborazi which is 5889 meters high. This mountain is the highest mountain in Myanmar and in Southeast Asia.
