For the convenience of the travellers to PutaO, Kachin State, with its snow-capped mountains, tour packages are being arranged to suit their available time, said Ko Moe Min Thein (PutaO), a tour operator for the trips, including snow-capped mountain climbing journeys.
“We have to rely on airlines to visit PutaO. Now, there is only one flight from Yangon on Saturday. The Yangon-Mandalay-Myitkyina-PutaO flight only runs once a week. There is another flight from Mandalay on Wednesday. As the visitors are mostly from Yangon, there is a problem of flight availability, and the actual arrivals are not as many as expected despite the growing interest among travellers,” he said.
Therefore, they must organize icy mountain climbing trips just in time with the flight departure date for travellers’ convenience.
“We plan the trip based on the flight departure date. If the guests arrive on Saturday, they can climb from PutaO on Sunday and return to PutaO on Friday to catch the Saturday flight. If it is a day late, they will have to wait the whole week for the next Saturday flight, which is inconvenient. So, we have to make tight schedules within a week,” he said.
Despite many enquiries from people interested in PutaO’s icy mountain climbing trip, he added that the number of actual visitors is moderate due to the flight difficulty. — MT/ZN
