At the Border with India in Myanmar’s Tamu Region

Tamu is a small town located in the Sagaing Division and the border crossing point between India (Moreh, Manipur State) and Myanmar. Those wishing to make the journey into Myanmar can do so with a regular Myanmar e-Visa. The gate between Moreh and Tamu is open from 6 am to 6 pm daily and is an excellent entry point for those wishing to explore the naturally stunning surroundings of Myanmar’s Chin State. Chin State is a peaceful state boasting excellent weather and its most famous feature, the beautiful Chin Hills. Extensions from Chin State into some of the country’s highlight destinations are readily available, including Kalay town, located 4 hours’ drive from Tamu. There is also a daily flight from Kalay Town to Mandalay or Yangon. Both Kalay and Kalaywa towns in the region are home to WWII battlefields and provide unique insight into the atrocities suffered during this era.
