Myanmar (Burma) travel guide

Myanmar (Burma) - Northern Myanmar (Chapter)

12th Edition Jul 2014

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
  • maps
  • spend lazy days drifting down the mighty Ayeyarwady River starting from pretty Bhamo and taking in little-visited towns on the way
  • transport
  • enjoy the cool air and colonial architecture of Pyin Oo Lwin, the British summer capital of Myanmar
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: When to Go, Pyin Oo Lwin, Pyin Oo Lwin & around, Kyaukme, Hsipaw & around, Lashio, Myitkyina & the Upper Ayeyarwady, Myitkyina, Myit-Son & Jaw Bum, Sinbo, Bhamo (Banmaw), Katha, Kyaukmyaung, Shwebo, Hanlin, The Far North.
