Mulayit Taung Climbing Notes

Dennis Dean Tidwell from UNITED STATES writes:

There are two trails to climb the mountain. The easiest and clearest trail is via Chokalee Village, located south-east of the peak. A guide may be available at Chokalee. The other approach comes in from the northern side. It is less defined, but a beautiful trail. Water is available from a spring.

Before you reach the peak there is a natural flat field. A little past the field is a hut where soldiers posted to this lonely mountaintop sometimes stay. They sometime booby trap the trail, so proceed with caution. At the peak the KNU used to operate a radio communications post from a fortified bunker.

The view from the peak to the west is amazing and on a clear day you can see as far as Mawlamyine. The mountain west of the peak drops almost straight down for 500 meters or more in a steep cliff to the tree covered foothills below. The mountain is not easily approached from the west.
