Snow Capped Mountains of Myanmar

Some do laugh at hearing about snow-capped mountains in Myanmar. Yes, Myanmar in deed has snow-capped mountains in the far north in the Kachin State, near China border.

It is entirely mountainous and is characterized by broad-leaved evergreen rain forest, a sub-tropical temperate zone from 8,000 ft to 9,000 ft. (2,438 m to 2,743 m), then broad-leaved, semi-deciduous forest and finally needle-leaved evergreen, snow forest. Above 11,000 ft. (3,353 m) the highest forest zone is alpine, different not only in kind from the forest, but different in history and origin. Still higher up, around 15,000 ft. (4,572 m), cold, barren, windswept terrain and permanent snow and glaciers dominate. At around 17,500 ft. (5,334 m), there is a large ice cap with several outlet glaciers.
