Kanpetlet is an old British settlement town and one of the beautiful towns in Chin States, the western part of Myanmar. It is situated 4560 ft above the sea level and the temperature is cool year round. We can reach there from Bagan by land route about 8 hours drive. We use Kanpetlet as a base camp before trekking tour to Mt Victoria. In the villages near Kanpetlet, we start to see Chin women with tattooed faces. Regarding accommodation in this area, please do not expect any kind of luxury. Only simple and basic accommodation is available.
