Kachin State is the northernmost state of Myanmar. It is bordered by China to the north and east.
Kachin State has Myanmar's highest mountain, Hkakabo Razi (5,889 metres (19,321 ft)), forming the southern tip of the Himalayas, and a large inland lake, Indawgyi Lake
Renewed fighting between the Kachin Independence Army and the Burmese army began on June 9, 2011 at Ta-pein hydropower plant and continued throughout 2012. Initial reports suggested that from June to September 2011 a total of 5,580 Internally Displaced Persons from 1,397 households arrived at 38 IDP camps under Myanmar Government control.In August, 2012 thousands of Kachin refugees were forced by the Chinese Government back into Myanmar despite the continued fighting there; NGOs like Human Rights Watch called to cease such action and pointed the illegality of doing so under international law. As of October 9, 2012, over 100,000 IDPs are taking shelter in various camps across Kachin State. The majority of IDPs (est. 70,000) are currently sheltering in KIA controlled territory. Fatality estimates were difficult to estimate but most reports suggested that between government troops, Kachin Independence Army rebels, and civilians upwards of 1,000 people had died in the conflict.
Even though many Kachins were already displaced internally, only around 150,000 people are reported as IDPs. The Kachins are currently the major target for the Burmese government, yet only few Kachins have resettled in the United States or in Australia, as compared to other Myanmar ethnics (such as the Karens and Chins). The economy of Kachin State is predominantly agricultural. The main products include rice, teak, sugar cane, opium. Mineral products include gold and jade. 🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲

“I planned my Portland trip particularly to capture this beautiful tree [...] It’s a smaller tree than I imagined, with many tourists and photographers there (need to pay 10$ extra tripod fee). I waited and observed to find the perfect composition [and] once the rain stopped, I placed my tripod and photographed this beautiful tree until I got this pic” #slowphotographymovement

Diferenciar el viento que choca en tu mejilla, el aroma de una flor; diferenciar caminar en la arena descalzos, y reir a carcajadas porque si, porque lo sientes; aprender a diferenciar lo real, lo presente, lo que que te hace construir y lo que representa unidad, diferenciarlo de lo material, pasajero y volátil✨😌💭
