We are still here! Let us send you tips for travelling through Myanmar and stories from the road …
With Sampan, we can take you up to Southern Chin State by driving in a jeep from Bagan. Up the steep, winding mountain tracks the first night we will settle down in the town of Mindat with dishes of Chin chicken salad and mithun meat.
In the morning – often frosty, with a stiff breeze – warm yourself with a steaming bowl of porridge and the thick Chin coffee, best taken with a wedge of lime.
We will begin trekking and on the way enjoy glasses of millet beer with the “tattoo-faced” women and ladies playing the nose flute. Spend the night at “Aye Camp”, an old British bastion, whiling away the evening around a bonfire with locals playing music.
We will trek up Mount Victoria – taking the quietest, most intrepid routes … – before returning to a lodge in Kanpetlet. Rub shoulders with keen twitchers enjoying a well-deserved bottle – or two! – of red wine.
