Myittha River (Burmese: မြစ်သာမြစ်) is a river of western Burma, a tributary of the Chindwin River.


The Myittha originates in the Chin Hills and flowing northwards drains the Kale Valley.[1] It flows into the Chindwin, one of the main tributaries of the Irrawaddy River, on the right just below the town of Kalewa.[2]
