I could just say ’what a brilliant trip’, but that is not enough. The trip exceeded my expectations, it pushed my physically, but not too far. Jill was a great leader, fun to be with, but firm and decisive when needed. The local team were excellent, the food the same (does Saila cater for UK functions?) and Jiri is a very good guide.

Mount Phonyin Razi

After your arrival to Yangon we fly north to Kachin State and after one night in a guesthouse in Putao we drive to the road head. From there we start our trek through local villages and forest, after five days we reach Phonyin Razi Base Camp. From Base Camp at 3,650m we climb across open snow slopes to the summit of Phonyin Razi at 4,282m. The summit has a wonderful view of Himalayan peaks in Burma and it is possible to see Assam in India too.

We take four days to trek out to the road head and then drive back to Putao. We have an extra day in Putao after the trek to explore the local area to Machabaw and Mulashidi with their beautiful suspension bridges. From Putau we fly to Mandalay and after a day sightseeing we fly back to Yangon.
