Karen state -DPDM3 #8


This week DVB’s Roadies explore Karen state – across extremely muddy roads. The relief of this state is mountainous with the Dawna Range running along until the southern end of the Karen Hills in the northwest of Myanmar.

Karen legends refer to a ‘river of running sand’ which ancestors reputedly crossed. Many Karen think this refers to the Gobi Desert, although they have lived in Myanmar for centuries.

The Karen constitute the third biggest ethnic population in Myanmar, after the Bamars and Shans. Enjoy DPDM’s episode #8 >
