Myitsone, or the confluence of the Maykha and Malikha rivers, in Myitkyina, Kachin State, attracted crowds of holidaymakers during the Tazaungdaing holidays, which started last Saturday and ended on Tuesday.
The Myitsone region is located near Tanphe Village, 25 miles from Myitkyina Town on the Myitkyina-Putao highway. Visitors traveling to the region by road can enjoy scenic views of mountains all along the route. With bamboo forest recreation camp, suspension bridge, wine garden, blue lagoon, Kachin Chauntha, and Jawbum, Myitsone area has become a popular destination among visitors during public holidays.
There is smooth transportation with concrete roads and visitors can reach the area using any vehicle. Mountain views, untouched waterfalls, Kachin ethnic costumes, and restaurants along the rivers are popular destinations in Kachin State among visitors. —Win Naing (Kachin)
