Chin State is located at the western part of Myanmar bordering with India. Mountainous region which hills are higher and slop more the Shan hills. Chin is one of the National races of Myanmar. Chin has several minorities and differ as Northern Chin and Southern Chin.
Not only because of these ethnic minorities Chin hill is an interesting tourist site because of its adventurous journey and Mount Victoria, 3053 meter high at the southern part. It is access by road to Mount Victoria in two routes. The first route is to cross the Ayeyarwaddy River by Z craft and proceed to Mindat along Kanma, Pauk, Kyaukhtu road, which distance is 92 miles takes one day. The second route is Bagan, Chauk, Saw, Kanpetlet - 97 miles, a day trip.
As the roads are not all weather-roads the best time to visit Mount Victoria is November to March. Both Mindat and Kanpetlet is the base of Mount Victoria and have facilities for accommodation. Besides mountaineering this is the best place for hiking to nearby villages to see the village life and bird watching. There still can be seen Chin ladies with tattooed face. The true heart of Traditional Chin Culture is found in the South - Paletwa, just over the state line from the Rakhaing State, can be reached via boat along the Kaladan River from Sittwe or Kyauktaw. A new road between Mahamuni and Paletwa will also allow vehicles to travel direct from Mrauk-U. In the Chin hills some woman still tattoo their faces, though it's a custom that is fading fast. At higher elevations they wear thick striped cotton blankets, draped over the body, and ornaments of copper and bronze.
