Hsipaw, is the principal town of Hsipaw Township in Shan State, Myanmar on the banks of the Duthawadi River. It is 200 km north-east of Mandalay. Mostly foreigners who come to Myanmar are finding their way to delightful Hsipaw, drawn by the possibilities of easily arranged hill treks that are more authentic than those around Kalaw or anywhere in northern Thailand.
