Golden Triangle

A hilly region that covers borders of Myanmar, Laos and Thailand was historically famous as the largest opium producing area in the world. Although the government of Myanmar has launched a vast campaign against poppy farming, small-scale plantations still occupy some mountainous, inaccessible parts of Eastern Shan State inhabited by Wa minority. Despite its poppy farming fame, the area’s peaceful, untouched landscapes, mist-shrouded mountains, lush jungles, scenic trek trails and tranquil views of the Mekong River have made it a major draw to adventurous travellers. The area is best reached by flying to Tachileik or Kengtung city, or by crossing an overland border with Thailand in Mae
