The Ayeyarwady Valley, Myanmar21.1N 94.9E
Myanmar, which has a total area of 678,500 square kilometres (261,970 sq mi), is the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia.
Three mountain ranges, namely the Rakhine Yoma, the Bago Yoma, and the Shan Plateau exist within Myanmar, all of which run north-to-south from the Himalayas and divide the country’s three river systems.
Fertile plains exist in the valleys between the mountain chains. The majority of Myanmar’s population lives in the Ayeyarwady Valley, which is situated between the Rakhine Yoma and the Shan Plateau.
This valley, visible here, appears tan in color, while the two mountain ranges flanking it are bright green. The Ayeyarwady River can be seen meandering through the valley.
