|Asterism Travels & Tours - Myanmar||Phangran Razi mountain, hiking down to Ziyadan village over creeks and jungle, Putao|
Trip reports - Hiking, camping to snow covered mountain in Putao
Another cold night at the base camp of Phangran Razi mountain
So on the 6th day from leaving Putao, we begun our descend. We walked down the steep rocky dry stream bed to the waterline and continued down and down. We wanted to reach Putao on the 8th day. Usually the trip to Phangran razi is about 11 to 13 days.

Back to Phangran creek
Today we wanted to cover as much as possible. So we walked a bit faster but very carefully over the rocks and slippery stones in the creek down to the night camp at about three quarters down from the river-end. So we would reach Ziyadan village mid day on the next day (7th day) and could continue to Warsandan village. Throughout the trail along the creek and on the village track tits are the problem. Tits are around usually during the day time; and their bite can make your skin burn red and itchy. Protective lotion are useful.

On the 7th day we arrived Ziyadan village at about 1pm, cooked and had lunch and left at 2pm for Warsandan village. Ziyadan to Warsandan is easy. We took 3 hours to reach Warsandan village. We were all tired but happy that we would get time for sightseeing around Putao.

At Warsandan village we had a good night stop after a long walk. We bought chicken and eggs from the village, and cooked a very delicious hot dinner. I also took shower. We had not got a shower since we passed Ziyadan village on the way up. It was a good night sleep as well after spending the cold nights in the tent on uneven ground and rocks.
We left Warsandan village in the morning on the 8th day for Putao - the final day of walk.
