ATTENTION- NOT FOR CLIMBING

Regarding above photo caption, you may ask why this boulder is NOT FOR CLIMBING.

GaBarNi actually is a Sandstone boulder filed which most climbers will definitely fall in love.

GaBarNi area grabs my attention with its Gigantic Size Boulder, which comes to my mind as a Highballing Fantasy.

Later I put a very high value to GaBaNi ,  ( not as a climbing site  despite  a  giant highball and many more boulders are there ) but because of  it’s Discoveries on Archaeological values. This boulder deserve high level of conservation as a National Treasure as one of the Myanmar Ancestor’s archaeological and anthropological proofs .

SIZE  of GaBaNi ( a giant boulder with Ancient Art from Stone Age )

It’s first discovery was just in recent years, in 2015 by U Win Bo , the local villager along with WunDwin local Artist/ amateur Archaeologist – U Soe Moe Naing. Those two were the first persons  brought our attention to the site by public. Later recognized by Government sectors to International and National level Archaeologist and Anthropologists. Gabarni site is now under supervision of  Myanmar Government and Local Authorities for conservation carried out by  Department of Archaeology and the Ministry of Culture.

 

 Let’s not climb it.
