DETAILED DECRIPTION

Travel where few have traveled before, and hike the highest peak in the Chin State of Western Myanmar. Our 5-day Mt. Victoria Trekking itinerary will show you the incredible beauty of Myanmar’s countryside. Learn about an entirely different way of life as you travel between villages on foot and by jeep. Visit with the locals and feel completely at home as you spend the night in their welcoming households and eat at their incredible handcrafted stone tables.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Yangon to Mindat

Rise early to catch your flight to Nyaung Oo, a small town lying on the Irrawaddy River. Transfer to the river’s jetty and enjoy a 45-minute boat cruise to the Kyunchaung jetty. Climb into a jeep, and enjoy the scenery as you sit back on the way to Mindat, a little town at nearly 5,000 feet elevation. You will see the heart of the central dry zone and several toddy plantations. Once in Mindat, you’ll spend the night in a welcoming local guest house. 

DAY 2: Mindat

Gain a beautiful cultural glimpse into the daily lives of the Mon Chin, Dai Chin, and Magan Chin tribespeople during your time in Mindat. The women have intricately tattooed faces, and the people still don their colorful, traditional dress. Sit down for a meal at one of the flat stone tables created near the tribe’s houses. Visit Kyarhto after a pleasant trek from Mindat. Meet members of the Mon tribe and learn about their ways of life. Enjoy a traditional dance performance and whet your palate as the welcoming tribe invites you to try their traditional rice wine. Return to Mindat and spend the evening back at your guest house.

DAY 3: Aye Village

Begin the day with a brisk two-hour trek to the Chait River. Along the way, you’ll pass through the Chin’s mountainside farmland. After crossing the river, travel up on foot for four hours to the Aye Village, a small, untrodden village spotted with little wooden huts. Walk beneath the fragrant pines before retiring for the night at either a local house or setting up camp in a tent. 

DAY 4: Mt. Victoria

Trek from Aye Village beginning at eight o'clock in the morning, passing Mindat to see the town in daylight on your way to the summit. Orchids and Rhododendron color the hills as you make your way towards the top of Mt. Victoria. Close to the summit, you’ll stop at 9,800 feet. Set up camp and rest to complete your trip to the summit in the morning.

DAY 5: Mt. Victoria to Bagan and Onward

Early in the morning, trek to the top of Mt. Victoria and be awed by the incredible sunrise over the Burmese countryside. Trek back down to Kanpetlet, where a jeep will pick you up and take you for a delicious traditional lunch at a local restaurant in Saw Town. Drive back to Bagan, where you can either fly back to Yangon or spend the night at a hotel before beginning your journey home the next day.
