Although most people have heard about the Naga tribes there are only a few who have actually been to their area. Your expedition goes right through the center of the Naga region where you will meet some of the 68 Naga tribes. Starting from Mandalay and then on to Monywa you will drive through the largest lowland forest of Myanmar called Mahamyaing forest. After crossing the Chindwin river and travelling a short distance you will enter the Naga Hills and be busy shaking hands with Naga warriors wearing hats made from bear fur, wild boar tusks, hornbill feathers, and tiger claws. Some also have tiger fangs hanging from their necklaces. If you think the thrill isn't enough you can go trekking to Mt Saramati (12553 ft), a sacred mountain for the Nagas, crossing wild pristine forests and some Naga and Chin villages, where civilization has almost never touched. Itineraries ranges from 18 to 24 days.
Best months to visit: December to March
Mt. Victoria (elevation 10200 ft ) is situated in the Chin Hills which form a southward extension of the Himalayas into Southeast Asia. Locally called Khaw Nu Thoung in Chin or Natmataung in Myanmar, they literallly mean "Mother of the Spirits" in both languages: it is the highest peak in the lower half of Myanmar. Mount Victoria has now been upgraded into a national park (179 sq miles) inhabited by about 200 species of birds including the endemic White-browed Nuthatch; it is also very rich in its biodiversity of flora and fauna. With a four wheel drive vehicle from Bagan you will encounter various types of forests along the way such as the dry forest of Central Myanmar, various qualities of deciduous forest, coniferous forest, broad leaf evergreen forest and high montane forest with mixed oak trees and rhododendrons. For itineraries ranging from 7 to 14 days you will see all of the four endemic birds of Myanmar; you will camp and trek in cool and high elevation forest and get to know some local Chin tribes; you will also enjoy the evenings with locally brewed Khaung Yay and - of course - have a hassle free holiday!
