DETAILED DECRIPTION

One of the least-developed areas of the world, the Chin State in Western Myanmar (Burma), bordering Bangladesh and Eastern India, is filled with natural beauty, from stunning waterfalls to majestic mountains. This intense five-day itinerary will bring you through this lush wildlife and remote villages to the summit of Mount Victoria, the highest peak in the entire state, for a unique experience in one of the most isolated cultures in the world. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Bagan-Chauk-Ka Zun Ma-Saw-Kanpetlet

After breakfast, you’ll depart from the ancient city of Bagan and head south over the mighty Ayeyarwady River on a safari adventure. This seven-hour four-wheel drive journey will bring you past vast plains and gentle hills, through the isolated villages of Ka Zun Ma and Nga Ga Bwe, and to the foot of Chin Hill, where the landscape becomes less dusty and more lush and green. Your final destination for the evening is the beautiful mountain village of Kanpetlet, where you’ll stay at the Pinewood Villa Resort.

DAY 2: Kanpetlet

After breakfast at your hotel, spend the day exploring the town of Kanpetlet, set on a mountain ridge between two deep valleys. You may visit a local house to learn about the tattoo tradition of the Chin Tribe: meet six women with different face tattoos and learn about the history, meaning, and process of this longstanding custom. Later, enjoy a traditional Chin-style dinner at your hotel.

DAY 3: Kanpetlet-Mt.Victoria-Aye village

After breakfast, you’ll embark on a jeep ride and then a trek to the summit of Mount Victoria, the highest peak in the Chin state, where you can take in incredible panoramic views. Enjoy a picnic lunch at a rest house after trekking down three hours to the base of the mountain, and then relax on the short 1-hour drive to Aye village - located 5,800 feet above sea level - for dinner and a night at a simple guesthouse.

DAY 4: Aye village-Kyar Do village-Lupet village - Mindat

Today, you’ll visit several local Chin villages to learn more about traditional tribal life. You will drive to Mashiyaw village, and then trek to two small villages, Kyar Do and Lupet, where you can meet local people, learn more about their tattoo custom, and visit the village sites, including the sacrifice post and the traditional circle stone slab cemetery. Afterward, you’ll drive to the village of Mindat and stay overnight at a simple guest house.

DAY 5: Mindat -Bagan - Departure

After breakfast, you’ll head eight hours back to Bagan, stopping at a local restaurant for lunch. Enjoy a final night at the hotel in Bagan before departing in the morning to your next destination.
