The next ethnic group encountered along the Sino-Burmese border in the documentary series is the Wa or Va people. Ximeng (西盟) is a central area of the Wa or Va people. It lies to the north of Menglian town.
Lincang (临沧) is 232 km of tough driving from Lancang town. Few tourists or travellers make it to this town. Lincang town is the main town of the Lincang region, which also includes the town of Canyuan (沧源). It is about 200km from Lincang. The journey takes between 4 to 5 hours. Lincang is very close to the border. Over here, there is an old (over 400 years old) and somewhat mysterious Wa village, that is introduced in the documentary.
