Paletwa (Burmese: ပလက်ဝမြို့; MLCTS: pa. lak wa. mrui., pronounced [pəlɛʔwa̰ mjo̰]) is one of the westernmost towns of Myanmar, in Chin State 18 kilometres from the border with Bangladesh. Its population in 2014 was about 97,000.[1]


Rakhine is the Lingua Franca of the region, while Kuki-Chin languages are spoken mostly in the hills.[2] The west of the town hosts many refugees that have fled from Rakhine state.[3] The literacy rate is 65% (2017).[4]

Neighboring villages such as Kan Lay (ကန်းလေ) can be reached only by foot in about an hour.


Paletwa is connected to the Rakhine state only by boat. It leaves Kyauktaw every morning and reaches Paletwa in the afternoon, running up the Kaladan River.[5]

The road to Matupi is reported to be on the brink of completion [6][7]

Paletwa is part of an ongoing infrastructure project Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project that will connect it to the Indian state of Mizoram.[2]


Despite its serene natural surroundings, tourism is under developed. The town has one hotel, but due to the restrictions on foreigners and accessibility problems for domestic tourists, tourism is almost non existent.
