Nine Mountains to conquer amid of cloud and mist2020-05-19edit Htoo
Most of the people are baffled to travel to certain destinations, which are wild and natural, as soon as the first drop of monsoon rain is coming. They are worried about catching rain and getting into the troubles in a wet atmosphere. Therefore, they choose cities as their trips instead of choosing trekking or something like this.
This time, I choose a trekking tour that is suitable in the raining season, and offer you adventurous experiences, in amid of cloud and mist. Moreover, you would have a chance to explore the social life of local people.
This trekking route is what I had passed through last year and it is one of the routes which were found by our great Trekking master U Oo. It is a special route for the raining season and I’m fond of it so much. Therefore, I had decided to try it again, it is the Nine Mountains Trekking Route.
By the way, it is Nine Mountains Trekking what I had already passed last year, and did also this year, and so, the photographs might be mixed but the clothes will be different. I wish all of you to understand this.
Now, let’s go to conquer the Nine Mountains together with me.
What are the Nine Mountains?
Many people think of hardship to try this trip, as soon as they heard of Nine Mountains. You see, it is Nine Mountains. However, you don’t need to ascend the entire nine mountains practically. The first mountain takes you nearly one hour to pass through but, all of the rest isn’t too much hard to conquer, they are in range. Therefore, it is a trekking Route, with several ups and downs, and what a normal person, who is in good health, and takes exercise regularly, can do it.
It is also a boundary line between Mandalay and Shan State. The mountains from Mandalay's side and the mountain range of Shan Roma will pacify you naturally. Moreover, if you trek the Nine Mountains in monsoon, you would see paddy field in a ladder shape, from nearby villages, endlessly till the horizon. That’s why it is the best route of trekking in the raining season.
How to get Nine Mountains?
Firstly, you had to get the Kalaw townships, if you want to make trekking of the Nine Mountains. From Yangon, the main way to Nine Mountains is by cars. If you take Yangon-Taung Gyi bus, either special or ordinary bus, at night, you would be arrived Kalaw in the early morning, about 5 am. As soon as you are at the Kalaw, U Ye group will fetch you at the bus stop, if you made a booking with them for the Nine Mountains trekking. After that, you would be brought to the hostel or U Ye’s home, to rest and clean yourself.
For breakfast, U Ye organized the trekkers at around 7 am, and then, brings and treats them at the Kalaw’s market. Guys who want military boot can buy at Kalaw’s market at once. After we had finished our meals, getting ready and start our trip to a village, located at the base of the mountains, to conquer the Nine Mountains.
