I like the river and nature in this area. However many tourists and local have to help preserved the areas. Many rubbish and waste are around the areas. The road to Myitsone is currently expanded. I got here by private car.

The weather was perfect and the location is beautiful. Not much more than rivers meeting and lots of rocks. If you are a stone collector you will love it. It was a nice trip.
