Kayah State is just an hour's flight in the northeast of Yangon, the national capital. It is bordered by Thailand on the east, Kayin State on the south and west and Shan State on the north and northwest. It is the smallest among the seven states of Myanmar. This State is endowed with teak and other hardwoods such as Pyinkado, Padauk and InGyin. Myanmar's largest and most important hydro-electric power plant has been constructed at BaluChaung Waterfalls at LawPita some 12 miles south of Loikaw, capital of Kayah state. Loikaw is pleasant with traditional pagodas and monuments. It is also famous for Padaung women, who wear traditional brass rings on their necks. Transport and communications services are yet to be improved and developed in this state. It still has no railway. There are air services from Yangon and from Heho in Shan State to Loikaw.
