Situated west of Bagan, across the mighty Ayeyarwady River in the Southern Chin Hills, Mt Victoria lies at the core of Natmataung National Park. Known in the Chin language as Khon Nu Son, the mountain towers 3180 metres and is of volcanic origin. This is a generally isolated region, home to a proliferation of bird species (birdwatchers take note!) and endemic plants including the rare black orchid. The rhododendron forest above 2750 metres is a particularly beautiful area.
