Through the Chin Mountains to the ancient royal city of Mrauk Oo

In the summer of 2015, I stumbled across a piece of writing entitled ‘From Mt. Victoria to Mrauk Oo’. My first thought was ‘Wow!’, and then I started reading. The introduction was promising – it described a journey that I would love to take myself. But the itinerary was somewhat confusing: Why did they choose to travel all the way back to Ayeyarwady from the Chin Mountains and then, from there, cross the Rakhine Mountains to Mrauk Oo? I was convinced there had to be another way. I soon found myself with the receiver in my hand, dialling the number for Khai, our guide in Mindat who had accompanied us on our tour of Mount Victoria in April 2012.
