Kachin State

Kachin State in North Myanmar

Kachin State is the northernmost part of Myanmar featuring still pristine outdoors. high mountains of up to 6000 meters and plenty of raw nature at the foothills of the Tibetan Himalayas plus countless Chinese poachers. 

From here the famous jadeite jade comes and the local Kachin people have a big problem to defend their country against the Chinese and the Myanmar military here are some of the best still pristine outdoors in Asia.

Holidays in Myanmar and brand new idea with an awesome experience in terms of diversity of flora and fauna. Myanmar is about the size of the UK and France together. Stretching from the lofty Tibetan Himalayas to the warm waters of the Andaman Sea. In he south and east Burma borders Thailand and has the Irrawaddy River in the center.
Kachin People

Kachin Tribes are typical mountain people 

Most Kachin are tough and stubborn but mainly honest already the British never were able to conquer them as they tried in a similar way to the Karen and Chin. 

Unfortunately this days (2017) some US groups of fundamental Christians are trying the same in various areas of Cambodia by using the religion as a bootstrap I hope they leave them alone. Since everywhere the old and new colonialists appear war follows and Christianity is one of the tools.

Trekking the Kachin Mountains

Myanmar is home of 134 ethnicities and most ethnic groups have different cultures arts wildlife plants and gemstones. A great vacation experience ready for the tourists.
