The majority of the people in Putao are Christian because of Christian missionaries in the British colonial days. Putao is the only place which Japan could not occupy in Burma. It is the last administrative town of northern Myanmar and stays as a diffident cultural zone of the country.
The town and its airport are situated on the valley of snowcapped mountains with 1400ft above the sea level and 210 miles north of Myitkyina, the capital of Kachin state which is rich in exotic natural and authentic cultural legacy.
