 *********************************************************************************************************

Chin State is a state in western Myanmar. Chin State is bordered by Sagaing Division and Magway Division to the east, Rakhine State to the south, Bangladesh to the south-west, and the Indian states of Mizoram to the west and Manipur to the north. The population of Chin state is about 478,801 in 2014 census. The capital of the state is Hakha. The state is a mountainous region with few transportation links. Chin State is sparsely populated and remains one of the least developed areas of the country. Chin State has the highest poverty rate of 73% as per the released figures from the first official survey. Trekking to tribal villages, hiking to Mt. Victoria and visiting to the local villages with Chin Guide is very interesting. We can go there via Bagan. About 5 hours driving distance to get to Kanpelet by a 4x4 wheel drive. Chin Mountain Adventure is truly a journey of a life time!!!!
