On the road to Hpakant
This last week of ‘part I’ of Doh Pyay Doh Myay (the team will have a 3 week break after), the Roadies finally reach Hpakant. These pictures are some impressions on the way, like this jade miner.
In 2011 fighting broke out between the Kachin Independence Army and the Burmese Army in the area around the Hpakant jade mines displacing an estimated 90,000 people by September, 2012 and killing hundreds of people.
