Hiking in Nagaland | Burma Expedition
It is the goal of this self-supporting mission to ascend Mount Saramati (3,826m) and be awarded from the top with a view of Burma/Myanmar and India. Since there is no fixed itinerary to the top from the side of Burma/Myanmar, this demanding and several days long adventure will lead this crew to reach the exceptional on a difficult itinerary, interrupted by visits to inviting Naga towns.
Ascend Mount Saramati, on the Indian-Boarder. Camps in and around the Naga towns. Enjoy the Naga Tradition. Visiting a secluded, hardly frequented part of Burma/Myanmar. Across the boundary between Burma/Myanmar and India. Shy, yet inviting, the proud Naga live in the Naga Hills, which constitute a boundary between India and Burma/Myanmar.
Totally insulated from the outside worlds until the colonization of India in the nineteenth and eighteenth centuries, the Naga consist of several indigenous peoples, each with their own colorful cultures, languages and histories. Since Burma/Myanmar is a predominantly Buddhist land, many Naga Christians who follow the English domination stay, and each of the villages has a scripture and anthems in its own tongue.
Naga residents actively participated in the 2015 election by welcoming hosts, establishing polling places and waiting for the results by wireless from the next town. Once regarded as a hidden treasure, the area has long been insulated in geography and culture from the outside world.
Situated on opposite hillsides, with towns and cities high above, rebellious sundowns often offer the opportunity to look back and think about the advancement of the days under a sky fortunately untouched by soiling. However, on the tour you will be able to taste homemade dishes, which will be served in every town. Below is the framework map for this landmark Burma/Myanmar mission - the "substance" and not the anomalies.
For a more detailed route, please refer to the brochure, which is available on demand or on demand. Land in busy Yangon, where you will see your tour leader for a crew briefringing prior to an in-house Mandalay plane in the afternoons. Next day the next day the excursion starts with another domestic trip to the dozy city of Homalin on the Chindwin River, where you will take a trip upriver to Thamanthi in a small boots.
You will then be picked up by a jeep for the last stage of the trip and the starting point of your hike, the Naga town of Khet Kaw. Travel from town to town as the crew advances across a number of valleys and breaks the riverbank every single night for a bath and a bath.
Located on opposite mounds, you begin the morning with your goal in view across the riverbed. Landscapes include everything from wooded areas of trees and fields to thick jungles and cloudy orchids. After the last hamlet you will take a trail through the woods to the prominent Saramati hillsides.
After enjoying the fantastic view over Burma/Myanmar and India, the crew will return to the towns where, if you have enough free day, you can participate in local community events such as travel harvest, worship service and christian-dancing. The members of the crew should be willing to be part of a crew working together to reach the expedition's goals.
Their relentless crest line and summits and the warm weather will be the greatest challenges on this outing. Hike: up to 25km for 10-day hikes with a climb of 7000m+. Your own gear (see the complete gear listing in the manual). Upon request for participation in this epoxyxpedition to Armenia, prospective team members will be provided with a comprehensive book.
Myanmar or Burma? The official name of the land is "Republic of the Union of Myanmar", although the Swiss flag still references Burma. Myanmar' is meant to include the people (' 68% of them are Bamar) and the concept is accepted by the United Nations, but not by the United States or the United Kingdom.
The British Foreign Ministry said in a statement: "Burma's democratic movements prefer the Burmese way because they do not recognise the illegitimacy of the non-elected army regimes to rename the country's name. It is well known that the EU uses both on different opportunities or both together, i.e. Burma/Myanmar.
People use Myanmar and Burma in an interchangeable way, often the first when they write or in official circumstances, and the second when they speak and at home. During the hike in Yangon, Homalin and on the lower hillsides, daylight temperature can rise to 30°C and drop to a more pleasant 5-15°C at nights. During the hike, the school where you will stay will have very little gear and all the presents are highly valued.
It is also very much appreciated in the towns and is a welcome thank you for the warmth. The plan concludes that there is a transportation system to take the crewmates back and forth from the beginning of the hike, so that starting and finishing times are not always easy. Team mates with special diets are welcome to join this tour and should specify their special needs when registering.
