* Please note that unpaved road between Putao and Ratbaw is not usable during the monsoon and post monsoon until December. The safest and main mode of travel outside this time is by trekking. In some cases, motorbikes may be able to go on these roads before December of the year. We recommend to add at least 4-6 extra days trekking to the above itinerary if you are looking to travel between August and December of the year.

This is the sample and the actual itinerary may vary.
We reserves the right to change the itineraries (rearranging the order of the tour programs, to cancel or substitute places to visit or to combine to make decent group size if there is a shortage of trek leaders and support staff) at any time without prior notice depending on the weather, operational and local conditions.
