The area of Myanmar

Myanmar area

Eastern Myanmar lies in the Golden Triangle, along with northern Thailand and Laos. Explore a remote, hardly visited part of Burma/Myanmar. However, the area that was later called Burma was more of a cockpit where different ethnic groups competed for control. However, Burma was only once the part of India. It is a remote part of Burma where you rarely see strangers.

Burma - Geography

Burma's geography's effect in fostering human biodiversity makes it hard to build a nation, both social and political. Somewhat shielded and insulated by the massive mountain ring at its border, Burma's community has evolved in its own way, never untouched by the major Indian and Chinese countries, but.... ways that can evolve in a particularly Myanmar way.

Burma's very diverse natural habitat has meant that a nation that is exceptionally connected to the natural world in its way of life would become a diverse and diverse population. Anyone who wants to understand Burma is often heartened to understand the differences between the humid-rice-producing tropic plains and the dryer dens.

Burma has two very different types of environmental environments in the most basic sense. On the one hand, the more or less compacted lowlands intersected by the Irrawaddy and Sittang River, with which the Burmese and other lowlanders have been living as paddy farmer in a symbolic coalition for more than 1000 years.

On the other hand, there is an elongate horse shoe made of high plateaux and "rugged land of Mmmtain", populated by various "hill tribes" who have been inhabiting the area for a long time. Contacts between Burmese and other low-lying tribes and between Burmese and some of the mountain tribes have led to different levels of accumulation.

However, especially with regard to the mountain tribes, contacts have led less to accumulation than to conflicts and to the maintenance and strengthening of nationalities. It covers an area of approximately 678,000 km2 and borders Bangladesh and India to the north and northwest, China to the North and North East, and Laos and Thailand to the South and Southheast.

Most of the terrestrial borders are a ring of hilly and jagged mountain ranges, making inland transport between Burma and its neighbours very inconvenient. Internal communications are made easier by the Irrawaddy flow system that dewaters the food part of the nation, which rises from its spring in the front ranges of North Burma to the south through the main lowland of the nation towards a vast deltas where nine estuaries of the stream flow into the Bay of Bengal.

Arakan Yoma in the western part and the Shan Plateau in the eastern part are the main lowland between a mountain chain known to the Myrmen. In spite of the impact of the monsoon over large parts of the land, the amount of precipitation strongly varied. Somewhat shielded and insulated by the vast mountain ring on its border, Burma's community has evolved in its own way, never untouched by the major Indian and Chinese countries, but always able to evolve in a particularly Myanmar way.

Burma's very diverse natural habitat has meant that a nation that is exceptionally connected to the natural world in its way of life would become a diverse and diverse population. Anyone who wants to understand Burma is often heartened to understand the differences between the humid-rice-producing tropic plains and the dryer dens.

Burma, with its vast streams running south from the heart of Asia, has for thousands of years gathered abundant all-uvial soils, the basis for a panoramic view of the tropics of life and the promises that have sometimes been fulfilled by an agro-bonanana. Enclosed in old springwater channels - low dykes - this life-giving waters have helped rice farmers for hundreds of years in what is often referred to as sub-Burma (about the lower third of the country), as well as the shore and fluvial areas that have been opened to farming, especially in the last hundred years.

Niederburma can also relate to the territory that the British conquered in their second half of the 19th cent. campaign against the Burmese. Indeed, Lower Burma covers not only the entire coastline of the Andaman Sea along the Andaman Sea, but also the areas around Moulmein and Pegu, the traditional home of the Mons, a tribe whose origins in classical times certainly compete with or surpass those of the Burmese.

Hundreds of years of maneuvers in Lower Burma can be seen in the settlements around the Irrawaddy, Sittang and Salween Delta tribes, where people like Mons and Karens have been made Burmese nationals of the present-day state, but are proud to preserve the memory of an ethnical identities that are hard for contemporary leaders to merge into a will.

Burma's seven divisional sections, Upper and Lower Burma, formed the nucleus of Burma in relation to its people and government. By the time the monarchs came and went, the division was mostly under Myanmar government, although Mons and others often succeeded in questioning the system. Distinctions share a fundamental worldview, cultural, linguistic, religious and kingly traditions that could reasonably be described as such.

To the north and upstream of the flood plain lie the dryer core areas of Upper Burma, where Burma's classic civilisations were born. Over a thousand years, empires, basing on the controls of Burma's agricultural and labor power, have relocated their capital cities to meet happiness-forecasts. As a feeling of nationality evolved in a river landscape so far from the ocean and so apparently sheltered by the mountains, Upper Burma thought in times of magnitude that it was indeed the particular centre of the earth, the centre of everything important.

That the Chinese, Japans and British once sweeped the country and left behind a ruin has not tarnished the belief that Upper Burma will remain of significant cosmetic importance to the guardians of tradition and truth. As the empires ascended and collapsed in the plain and the peasants in the villages perfect the skill of survival of palace pranks and alien incursions, the hill tribes were also quite skilled at avoiding each other as the army was raging and seeking enlisted men.

As with all mountaineers, Burma's hills have valued their liberty and right to be less luxurious than their neighbours in the valleys.
