All these groups speak different dialects and have different costumes. The women, mostly elder ones, have tattooed faces with very different patterns. We can count about 5 different ways of putting the tattoos on: dots, spider, lines, twirls and entirely cover black on their faces. Walking to each village take about 1 to 1 ½ hours. Most of the tribes are believe in Christianity with a variety of beliefs, from Methodists to Catholics. In every villages one can see houses decorated with buffalo corns. These are from animals called Mithan, a cross between a domestic cow and a wild Gaur. Each time such an animal is slaughtered, a kind of wooden pillar decorated with all sort of ornaments is erected in front of the house. In addition, a stone table, which is also used as cover for urns, is placed nearby. Some of the houses have up to 10 such pillars and in some villages the stone slabs are all gathered together (like a cemetery) whereas in others they are near each home. Under the sunshine with the cool breeze, scenic driving to the base camp of Mt. Victoria, 10 miles away from the lodge will be pleasure of the day. The pine forest and sweet bird twitters will fill the beauty of the Mt. Victoria which is the most famous birding area for many endangered species of Myanmar. Begin our hiking from the base camp, 6500 ft above sea level, to the top, 10200 ft. At the first 45 minutes of the 3-hour-trek, the quick step becomes difficult.
