Myitkyinā, town, northeastern Myanmar (Burma). Myitkyina is located on the west bank of the Ayeyarwady River, just under 40 km (25 miles) from Myit-son (means “confluence ” in Burmese) of the first two upstream rivers (Mali and N’mai). The panoramic view of the scenario at Myit Sone with the unspoiled beauty of nature is beyond the expression of words and will definitely be a fine attraction to tourists. The surrounding area is predominantly hilly and forested and is drained by the headstreams of the Irrawaddy and the Upper Chindwin rivers. Myitkyina can be reached by road, rail, river and air. Different tribes of national races live in harmony with their own cultures, customs, dialects, dances and lifestyles. The glittering costumes with silver trinkets of the charming Kachin belles would be an enchanting sight. For souvenir the Kachin woollen bag with silver trinkets would be a memorable gift. The overland trade route to India and China and World War II supply line to China along the Ledo Road pass through Myitkyina. For mountaineering enthusiasts, expeditions to Mount Khaka Bo Razi and Mount Gam Lan Razi would be an adventure.
