Visitors are going to Yaykhe Creek near the border post No 3 in the prominent town of Panwa, Myitkyina District, Kachin State, to enjoy winter frosts and snowfalls. After having snowfalls since 21 January, the number of visitors to the Yaykhe Creek has increased.
U Hkaung Lan Dee, a visitor, said, “I have visited here twice including this time. The ice will not melt at any time. I came here with my friends. I am very happy.” Another visitor U Pyae Phyo Paing said, “I have been in Panwa for 4 years. This is my first visit to the creek. I had to drive for almost an hour. Then, I had to walk for ten minutes, but it’s a lot of fun to drive and walk on ice and snow.”
In winter, Panwa is usually covered with ice and snow because of snowfalls.—Ye Nyunt (IPRD) (Translated by Maung Maung Swe)
