In August 2013, a group of 5 Americans and 2 Burmese climbers traveled to the farthest reaches of Northern Myanmar to make a first ascent of Gamlang Razi, Southeast Asia’s disputed highest peak. All told, the climbers traveled over 270 miles on foot through some of the harshest terrain on the planet, braving extreme heat and moisture, as well as the gambit of jungle creatures. Despite these challenges, they were rewarded with rare access to one of the most remote and untouched corners of this planet, living with villagers along the trail that had never before seen westerners. In fact, there have been less than a handful of westerners in history to have ever been to this part of the world, and only one western climbing expedition in history has ever been to these mountains.
