Myanmar (Burma) - Northern Myanmar (PDF Chapter)
This is the Northern Myanmar chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
Rugged and remote Northern Myanmar offers a fascinating mix of ethnic minorities and the prospect of travel through some of the least-visited areas of the country. While much of this vast region remains off-limits, the British-era summer capital of Pyin Oo Lwin and a boat trip along the mighty Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River are must-dos.
- walk to unspoilt Shan and Palaung villages from Hsipaw, a laid-back plateau town with royal connections
- spend lazy days drifting down the mighty Ayeyarwady River starting from pretty Bhamo and taking in little-visited towns on the way
- enjoy the cool air and colonial architecture of Pyin Oo Lwin, the British summer capital of Myanmar
- restaurants & accommodation
