From its source in Mizoram, India, the Kaladan River runs approximately 350 kilometres in length, cutting a narrow valley through the mountains of Chin State and emptying into the Bay of Bengal at Sittwe in Arakan State. The lower part of the river opens up to form a fertile plain that stretches approximately 110 kilometres and covers a total area of 3,640 square kilometres from upper Kyauktaw Township to Sittwe. Pristine forests and endangered animals lie along the river’s upper reaches, where several ethnic groups live. In all, approximately one million people live in the townships along the river.
