  • The Park is accessible by 4 x 4 six to seven hour drive from Bagan and is dotted with villages of ethnic Chin, where it is still possible to encounter old women tattooed on face with radiating motifs. Usually the few tourists are limited to cross it in a car with three-day circular walk from Bagan, staying in simple resort towns of Kanpetlet and MIndat and doing short hike to the villages Chin. The high road that connects Kanpetlet to Mindat is subject to frequent landslides (especially in the rainy season) and is often impractical. From a naturalistic point of view the Park is splendid because untouched; the forest is so thick and impenetrable that the leadership of Kanpetlet pointed me that only two groups in recent years have ventured along several trekking routes. I had to deal with (2:45 ' round trip) the climb, from the road between Kanpetlet in Mindat, climbs to the top of Mount Victoria (high just over 3000 mt a.s.l.) on a day of clouds. The clouds went up the slope by embracing in magical puffs trees covered by lichens, the silence was broken only by my steps and by the strange chirping of some tropical bird. Atop a ray of sunshine shone the wide Glade at the end of which stands a stupa and a white Buddha statue. A simple trek of great serenity.
