PUTAO TOWN

putao
A small, quiet place, surrounded by snow-capped mountains stretching from Tibet in the northwest. Steep fields in the valleys around are cultivated. There are gardens of hill rice, maize and mixed with cereal crops, cucumbers, gourds and huge marrows. The higher region is populated with pine, hemlock and silver fir mixed with some larch. From 2,750 meters to 3,660 meters almost pure conifer forests cover the slopes. There is a abundance of hardwoods such as oak, maple, birch, walnut, chestnut as well as rhododendron and others.
 
The people in the valleys catch fish in thorn-lined conical fish traps, with nets or harpoon. Cold weather mist hangs over the peaceful and serene surroundings almost 6 months of the year. Flowing streams and rivulets, straw-roofed houses and fences of pebbles and creek stones provide a pleasant, pastoral contrast to the scenes and sights of modern cities. People of the Rawan, Lisu, Khamti-Shan, Jingphaw and Kachin are represented in the region. Simple, direct, hard working and hospitable.
