Myanmar (Burma) is a country in South-East Asia, which occupies the western part of the Indo-China Peninsula, the adjoining part of the mainland and a number of offshore islands. Myanmar borders on Bangladesh in the west, India in the north-west, China in the north-east and Laos and Thailand in the east. In the south-west and south, Myanmar is washed by the waters of the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. The country covers an area of 677,000 sq km.

Peak Khakaborazi (5,881 m) is the highest point of the country, which is located in the far north of Burma. Such mountain ranges as the Kumu, the Shanpan, the Triangle and the Gango extend to the south-east and south-west from here.
