Want to experience the thrill of crossing over what is perhaps India’s most exciting and under-explored international border or of visiting the place where South Asia meets Southeast Asia? Discover the border town of Moreh (110 Km from Imphal) and cross over into Tamu in Burma (Myanmar) to see its bustling bazaar, friendly people and main Buddhist monastery. You top it all off with a delicious Burmese meal! As if that wasn’t enough, en route near Tengnoupal you enjoy stunning views from the road at 1700 m of the mountains that form the India-Burma border. En route you can see the Shenam Saddle where some of the most ferocious fighting of the WWII took place between the British and Japanese soldiers.
