Bagan | Mindat | Kanpetlet | Mt. Victoria Chin State

Highlights:

  • Mount Victoria (Nat Ma Taung in Burmese, or Khonuamthung in the local Chin language) is the tallest mountain in the Chin State and third tallest in Myanmar. It is 3,053m (10,016 ft) above sea level. Both Mt. Victoria and the surrounding area are part of the Nat Ma Taung National Park, an ASEAN Heritage park that covers 72,300 hectares in the Chin Hills.
  •  Nat Ma Taung National Park, home to a variety of rare and beautiful flora and fauna and ethnic tribes known for
    their tattoo-faced womenfolk. The national park biodiversity has led to it being awarded  ASEAN Heritage Park  status
    and of  Outstanding Universal Value by UNESCO.
  • The small town of  Kanpetlet  is where most eco lodges in the area can be found – although they are not in the town itself, but higher up the mountain on the road to Mount Victoria. Meeting the locals by wandering around the simple homesteads and churches of this quiet rural backwater is the best activity visitors can do in Kanpetlet itself.
  • Mindat, a larger town than Kanpetlet, is about four hours to its north and is set spectacularly along a mountain ridge. In Mindat and the surrounding area you will find members of the indigenous Dai, Upu and Ya tribes. The older women of these tribes sport full facial tattoos that differ in design according to their tribe (the practice is now outlawed by the  central government , so you do not see tattoos on younger women).
