Irrawaddy River

Born in the Himalayas, the Irrawaddy River, Myanmar’s main river, crosses the country for more than 2000 km from north to south. The Burmese civilisation flourished along its shores, with archaeological treasures like Bagan, the citadel of Mandalay, or the former capital city Yangon in the river delta.

The Irrawaddy, also called Ayeyarwaddy, has the particularity of having its whole catchment basin contained in only one country, Myanmar. It is a strong cultural bond for all the Burmese.
