BHAMO (Bhamaw)

Bhamo is a city in Kachin State of Myanmar, located 186 km south from the capital city of Myitkyina. It is on the Ayeyarwaddy River, and is the nearest river port to the Chinese border. The population is a mix of Chinese and Shan, with Kachin peoples in the hills around the town. Bhamo was once called Sampanago, and was the capital of a now-extinct Shan kingdom of Manmaw. The ruins of the old city walls still exist, some 5 km from the modern town.

Bhamo is a town on famous Ledo Road, connected between India, Myanmar and China. The Road is one of the most ever expensive ones in the world spending as more than US $ 137 million spent in some 1942 – 1944, constructed under the leadership of Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell.
