More about Myanmar

Myanmar is bordered by the People’s Republic of China to the north and northeast, Laos and Thailand to the east, and Bangladesh , India and the Bay of Bengal to the west. The country extends for around 2,000 km from north to south and 900 km from west to east. The narrow, elongated southeast part extends far to the Malay Peninsula and ends at the only 60 km wide Isthmus of Kra. The Tenasserim Mountains (up to 2 072 m), which run parallel to the coast, border on Thailand in the east . The Merguiarchipel is off the coast of the Andaman Sea. Check thedresswizard to see Untouched Myanmar.

The main part of the country can be divided into three large sub-areas: the peripheral mountains in the west, the Shan plateau in the east and the central Irrawaddy basin, which is surrounded by mountain ranges in the shape of a horseshoe in the north. The lowlands traversed by Irrawaddy , Chindwin and Sittang is a geological rift zone (last severe earthquake in 1975) and extends from the constantly expanding delta area of ​​the Irrawaddy in the south to the inland basin of Mandalay in the north, one of the few semi-desert arid areas in Southeast Asia. The Pegu Mountains (Pegu Yoma) with the extinct volcano Mount Popa (1,519 m) rise from the lowlands.

The eastern Himalayas continue to the south in the up to 3825 m high tertiary western fringes. It extends from the Patkai Mountains and the Naga Hills to the Chin Hills (up to 3,094 m) to the 900–1500 m high Arakan Mountains, which drop off steeply to the Bay of Bengal at Cape Negrais. The up to 2600 m high Shan plateau in the east with the Inlesee is a partly karstified, Mesozoic limestone highland with deeply cut valleys. As part of the central mountains behind India, it stretches from Yunnan in China to the Tenasserim Mountains. The main streams of this area are the Salween , which flows into the Gulf of Martaban, and as a border river toLaos the Mekong. The extreme north of Myanmar extends over the densely forested subtropical Kachin Mountains to the foothills of the Tibetan foothills (in the Hkakabo Razi 5,881 m).

Climate and vegetation

Myanmar has a tropical monsoon climate. Three seasons can be distinguished: the cool dry season from October to February, the hot dry season from March to mid-May and the rainy season from mid-May to October with the highest rainfall during the southwest monsoon; in some areas up to 95% of the annual precipitation falls. The mountain and coastal regions directly exposed to the monsoon are among the rainiest areas on earth. There is always the risk of tropical cyclones there. Cyclone Nargis left the Irrawaddy Delta with great destruction and flooding in 2008. The leeward sides of the mountains and the central lowlands in the rain shadow of the Arakan Mountains sometimes receive less than 500 mm of precipitation per year. The temperature differences are more pronounced in the arid regions (Mandalay 21 ° C in January, 32 ° C in April). The most pleasant climate is found on the Shan Plateau with average rainfall and temperatures of 6–8 ° C below those of the neighboring lowlands. Temperatures also decrease with the increasing altitude to the north and greater distance from the sea: The average annual temperature in Moulmein on the Gulf of Martaban is 28 ° C, in Lashio (Shan state) 22 ° C. In the far north of Myanmar there is snow for two months a year.

The climatic differences are reflected in the vegetation. It consists widely of tropical rainforest , with longer dry seasons and annual rainfall below 2000 mm of moist monsoon forest (with teak wood used for forestry since 1856), in the central lowlands from bush forest to thorn bush savannah. In addition, there are bamboo forests (also as secondary vegetation) in wetlands and mangrove swamps on the coast. When there is little rainfall, dwarf shrubs, acacia and cactus species grow. Oak, pine and rhododendron forests thrive in the far north.Wild elephants , tigers , rare deer species and numerous bird, reptile and amphibian species still live in protected areas with a high number and diversity of species. In many places, the mountain rainforests have given way to palm oil and rubber plantations or rice and vegetable fields.
