Tour Summary: A remote enclave of highlands and rolling hills, the Chin State has long been home to a host of unique tribes and cultures. Proud and independent, such peoples have maintained their traditions even in the face of encroachment from outsiders. Indeed, the inhabitants of the area have long been fierce warriors, resisting a successive slew of invaders, including Burmese kingdoms, British colonialists, and finally, the Imperial Japanese Army of World War II. Despite their pride in their customs and traditions, however, the Chin tribes are predominantly Christian today, a legacy of American missionaries who first made their way to the area in the late nineteen century. Certainly, the highlight of any trip to the Chin State is the chance to experience authentic hill tribe culture little-changed from decades past. Living in scattered, far-flung villages, the Chin peoples are friendly and warm, a welcome contrast to their jungle home.
