These rivers genarally flow north to south

Ayeyarwaddy river, the main lifeline of the country, originates in highland Kachin state and flows nearly 2000 km and finally dumps into the Andaman sea in the form of many streams in Ayeyarwaddy division. The river is nevigable by large double decker boats up to Bhamaw in the southern Kachin state.

Chindwin river collects its head waters in the northern Sagaing division, and flows into the Ayeyarwaddy river between Mandalay and Bagan. The double deckers sail up to Maw Leik; beyond that only the smaller motor boats would go. In the dry season (February to May) the large boats may go only up to Kale Wa.

Sittoung river is not navigable for passenger boats due to strong currents and rapids. Some sections of the river, and its tributaries are used for the transportation of logs and bamboo. It is formed by many streams from Bago mountain range, Kayin and southern Shan state hills. The Sittoung river goes into Gulf of Moattama, the northern part of Andaman sea.

Thanlyin (Salaween) river which starts in China passes Shan state, Kayah state, Kayin state, Mon state and finally empties itself into the Gulf of Moattama near Mawlamyaing. It serves as border between Thailand and Myanmar's Kayin state. The large passenger boats can travel up to Shwe Gun in the high waters (June to November). The northern parts are rapids and strong currents through the mountains.

Mekong river acts as border between Laos and Myanmar's Shan state.
