Hkakabo Razi

   Burma's highest mountain, at 5,887 meters (19,309 feet); also the highest mountain in Southeast Asia. An extension of the eastern Himalaya range, it is located near the northern tip of Kachin State, overlooking the borders with China and India. Other high peaks in this region are Gamlang Razi, at 5,837 meters (19,144 feet); Dindaw Razi, at 5,466 meters (17,927 feet); and Sheankala Razi, at 5,000 meters (16,399 feet). Hkakabo Razi was known as the "Putao Knot" during the British colonial period, but it was little explored (James G. Scott does not mention it in his 1906 Burma: A Handbook of Practical Information). It was not climbed until September 1996, by a Burmese-Japanese team. All the higher mountains in this region are snow covered all year-round.
