Commence with the visit to colorful morning market to detect the way of life of the different tribes in northern Myanmar which can be recorded by photos. The breakfast is followed by the trip of one hour distance to Htawadan Village, 12 miles far away from Putao, by jeep. The jeep riding is ended on the bank of Malikha River, one of the famous small rivers of great Ayeyarwaddy, and to get to the other side is by a small boat. The onward trekking is started there. Sightseeing on the way: Kaungmulone Pagoda, with the age of over 2000 years on the eastern bank of the small river, and unusual spirit images around the stupa. Another 5 mile walk is to a very green and carpet-like clean village named Nankhan Village. Go and see Rawan, Lizu and Shan villages on the way. Evening leisurely sightseeing around the village, Nankhan, the biggest one around Putao, make you absorb the experience from watching the genuine way of life of the Rawan people.
Day 03: Nankhan village- Mularshide-Putao
The 4 hour trek in the fresh morning air is the beginning of the leisurely tour line-up. The distance is about 7 miles from Nankhan Village heading to Machanbaw, the last administrative town in northern Myanmar. Along the river while trekking, the pleasant and unforgettable feeling stems from the sightseeing of some villages of Rawan and Lizu people. Kachin styled Shan noodle, made of rice and some vegetables and fish, introduces you a new taste during lunch at a small traditional restaurant in Machanbaw. The famous stone dragon is also a ‘must’ site at the view point. After crossing the river by the Malikha suspension bridge, proceed to Mularshide Lizu village by one and a half drive. Being not only the biggest Lizu village but the first place to have a touch with Christianity in northern Myanmar, the village has the first church and Sunday school in the region which is good to see. The delightful sunset is at the Mularshide suspension bridge before dinner.

Important notes
As tourism infrastructure is starting to develop, you may find the accommodation standards to be lower than in other Asian countries. Since Burma has recently become a popular tourist destination, pricing is also inflated due to demand, and at times our hotels can change as bookings are bumped by hotels charging a higher price to other travellers. Please be patient with any last minute hotel changes, and please be aware that often although the price of the accommodation is quite high due to demand, some hotel standards can be quite basic. Especially, you can enjoy homestay for night time if you start your Putao trekking. The friendly host will welcome you with local meals and historical stories.

Should be lightweight, dry quickly, and provide insulation. A properly thick sweater or long sleeve shirt will be ideal for the evenings when temperatures decline significantly. It is wise to prepare waterproof pants and gloves for long and deep hiking. Lightweight hiking boots or good quality running shoes are strongly recommended for low land trekking. A set of good quality splash pants and jacket are essential to keep you dry and warm all the time.

Passports and Visas 
It is each traveler's responsibility to have a passport valid for at least 6 months after the date of travel and a visa if required. Please check whether your nationality in Myanmar Visa exemption list, otherwise you do need to have your VISA done before going. Please check the information at our Myanmar Visa guide for specific. 

Cell Phones & Calling Cards 
You may wish to carry a cell phone while traveling. Check with your cell phone provider if your phone will work in the destination(s) you are visiting. Myanmar service is dominated by the GMS technology standard, while some of the world such as U.S uses the incompatible CDMA standard. We suggest that you should check carefully or you may incur high international roaming fees. 
However, the SIM card in Myanmar is not very popular and still quite expensive. You may need to check with your service providers for roaming fees when taking tours to Myanmar
When dialing a number from one country to another, you should proceed as follows: dial your country's Exit Code + destination Country Code + Phone Number. Country Code of Myanmar is 95
Wireless Internet Access 
Passengers traveling with WiFi enabled devices (such as a personal computer, smartphone, tablet, or digital audio player) may be able to connect to the internet via a wireless network access point (or hotspot). WiFi access in hotels and/or cruise lines often involves a fee which, in some cases, can be very expensive. 
Please ask your hotel receptionist to avoid unexpected charges.
Credit Card Usages and Currency 
Myanmar’s national currency, the kyat (pronounced chat, and abbreviated K) is divided into the following banknotes: K1, K5, K10, K20, K50, K100, K200, K500 and K1000. Travellers should ensure they arrive in Myanmar with their entire travel budget in US dollars, as ATMs are still very hard to come by (although this may change)
For credit/debit cards, surprised tourists in Yangon found themselves helpless when trying to use them. However, a couple of high-end hotels in Yangon and Mandalay are able to accept credit cards, and sometimes give cash back. This is done via a processing system linked outside the country, Singapore or Vietnam, and is at the mercy of internet connections
Trip Preparation 
A little pre-planning can make your trip go a lot smoother. Several weeks before your trip, make a list of what you will need to take with you. Make sure your personal documents (passports, visas, driver’s license) are in order and that you have enough prescription medications to last through the trip. We suggest that you make photocopies of passports, visas, personal ID and any other important travel documents and pack them separately from the originals. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names. 
If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll have copies for easier reporting and replacement. You may consider bringing a small supply of over the counter medications for headaches and/or anti-diarrhea pills. We recommend that you pack a portable alarm clock. Avoid placing valuables such as cameras in your checked luggage.
