A Mystery , Gamlang Razi or Hkakabo Razi (highest mountain in Myanmar & Southeast Asia)

What is the highest mountain  in Myanmar & Southeast Asia

Hkakabo Razi or Gamlang Razi ?

This year, 2014 October, Hilaree O’Neill led the team of Top Climbers including

Renan Ozturk , Emily Harrington  ,  Cory Richards as a climbing crew along with NatGeo- co writer Mark Jenkins & Taylor Rees as a film crew to climb the summit of Mt.Hkakaborazi with an aim for the measuring the summit, to solve the mystery.

The team just recently come back from the high camps after their hard climb. ( tho they din’t made the summit, the team come back safely {apart from Renans’ broken wrist ), they gained a lot of inspiration & challenges of true Myanmar-Alpine-Climbing , demanding thick jungle hiking/bushwhacking & uneven terrains river crossings ) and of course beauty of Myanmar Mountains and Burmese ethnic groups of isolated villages in primitive life.

Last year Mt.Gamlang  Razi Gamlang Razi 2013 September 7 Myanmar – American Friendship Expedition First Ascent   acquired the data of Gamlang Razi summit {known second highest summit in Myanmar}  , recorded as 5,870.084 meters claiming the Disputed Highest Mountain in Myanmar { the coordinates from the peak:Latitude: N 28 18’21.19907”      Longitude: E 97 28’04.64641”Mean Sea Level Height: 5870.084 meters (+/- 2 meters) } ,  the first and only ascent of Mt.Khakarborazi in 1996 has no  geo-reference record as Ozaki & Nama summited without GPS equipmenthttp://blog.junipersys.com/gamlang-razi-elevation/?fb_action_ids=10202973139079706&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%7B%2210202973139079706%22%3A587825727969051%7D&action_type_map=%7B%2210202973139079706%22%3A%22og.likes%22%7D&action_ref_map

The answer of “Highest Mountain in Myanmar & Southeast Asia” is still a mystery !!

ခါကာဘို နဲ႕ ဂမ္လန္ရာဇီ ဘယ္ေတာင္ပိုျမင့္သလဲ

ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံနဲ႕ အေရွ႕ေတာင္အာရွမွာ အျမင့္ဆုံးေတာင္ဟာ ခါကာဘိုလား ဂမ္လန္လားဆိုတာ ေျပာႏိုင္ဖို႕အတြက္ ဒီႏွစ္ထဲမွာ အေမရိကန္ ထိပ္သီးေတာင္တက္သမားေတြဟာ ခါကာဘိုေတာင္ထိပ္ကို တက္ေရာက္တိုင္းတာဖို႕ ရဲ့အကူအညီနဲ႕ တက္ေရာက္ရန္ ၾကိဳးပမ္းခဲ့ပါတယ္ ၊ အခုဒီေတာင္တက္အဖြဲ႕ဟာ ၾကမ္းတမ္းတဲ့ ခါကာဘိုကေန ေတာင္ထိပ္ကို မေရာက္ခဲ့ပဲ ျပန္လွည့္လာခဲ့ျပီျဖစ္ပါတယ္ ။

မႏွစ္က ၂၀၁၃ ခုႏွစ္ စက္တင္ဘာလ ၇ ရက္ေန႕မွာ ျမန္မာအေမရိကန္ ခ်စ္ၾကည္ ေရးေတာင္တက္အဖြဲ႕ရဲ့ ဂမ္လန္ရာဇီေတာင္ထိပ္ကို တိုင္းထြာခ်က္အရ ၅၈၇၀ ဒသမ ၀၈၄ မီတာျမင့္ေၾကာင္းသိရပါတယ္။(၁၉၄၅) မွာ ေရးဆြဲ ခဲ့တဲ့ အေမရိကန္ႏိုင္ငံ နဲ႕ ႐ုရွားႏိုင္ငံေတြက Topography ေျမပံု အေထာက္အထား အရ ဂမ္လမ္ရာဇီေတာင္ဟာ ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံ၏ လက္ရွိ အျမင့္ဆံုးဟု သတ္မွတ္ထားေသာ ခါကာဘိုရာဇီေတာင္ထက္ ေပ (၉၀) ပိုျမင့္တယ္ လို႕ ဆိုပါတယ္။ အဲ့ဒီအခ်က္ကို ထူးေဖာင္ေဒးရွင္းက ပံ့ပိုးတဲ့ ဂမ္လန္ရာဇီေတာင္ထိပ္ခရီးစဥ္မွာ ေဖာ္ျပခဲ့ပါတယ္၊ ဒါေပမဲ့ ခါကာဘိုရာဇီေတာင္ထိပ္ေပၚမွာ တိက်တဲ့ အျမင့္ေပမတိုင္းရေသးမခ်င္း ဒီအခ်က္ကို အတည္ျပဳဖို႕ရာမလြယ္ေသးပါဘူး၊ ( ၁၉၉၆အိုဇာကီခရီးစဥ္မွာ GPS ေတြသုံးျပီးတိုင္းခဲ့တဲ့ ေတာင္ထိပ္ရဲ့ အျမင့္ေပကို စက္ကရိယာေတြနဲ႕ တိုင္းခြင့္မသာခဲ့ပါ )

ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံနဲ႕ အေရွ႕ေတာင္အာရွမွာ အျမင့္ဆုံးေတာင္ဟာ ဘယ္ေတာင္လဲ ဆိုတာ အခုထိ မေျပာႏိုင္ေသးပါခင္ဗ်ာ ။
