Lots of flying to finally get here, but worth it. Cooler than other parts of the country and if you are lucky you can see the Himalayas in the distance. Unbelievable accommodations and a staff that goes out of its way to please. Expensive but they fill your day with different, included, events...elephant ride, rafting and trekking

Putao is not easy tio reach... the journey there is part of the experience. Once there (I assume you can afford this place, luxury in isolation is not cheap), you will be awestruck by the beauty of the surrounds, the care put into little luxuries (like a bathtub in the middle of the suite) and fine food. Activities are elephant... More

My husband and I have been trying to visit Myanmar for the last twelve years and finally in March we arrived there.It was well worth the wait.

Nestled in an isolated and distant village of Northern Kachin State beyond the Nam Lang River, on the verge of the enthralling Himalayan Mountains and towards Myanmar’s extreme northwest corner lays the Malikha Lodge those servers as the most elite retreat of the World. It is like a piece of land separated from the jagged peaks and the subtropical rainforests... More

This is one of the most difficult Trip Advisor reviews I have had to write! We have travelled several times to Myanmar in the past 2 years and we were keen to go to Putao in the north of the country, at the foothills of the Himalayas, a beautiful part of Myanmar which few tourists yet visit, since it has...

The isolated setting overlooking a river and mountains is lovely. The room (actually individual cottages) are very large and comfortable with wood stoves that are lit every morning at 6 AM by the staff. The staff is incredibly helpful. The price of the rooms however is ridiculously high. The restaurant is lovely and the food good, but not as good... More

Just came back from 2 weeks in Myanmar. Went on a special Andrew Harper tour that left much to be desired. Their write-up exaggerated on what they really delivered.

We did the Rawang Explorer in December 2009, which is 4 days hiking and 3 nights at malikha lodge. The hike was beautiful, with excellent food and guides.
