HTOO Group of Companies and HTOO Foundation are going to be main sponsors for Khakaborazi Expedition. In this expedition, three mountaineers from Myanmar Hiking and Mountaineering Federation, Ko Pyae Phyo Aung, Ko Aung Khaing Myint and Ko Zaw Zin Khaing are going to make tremendous efforts to the summit of Mount Khakaborazi in Myanmar, in coming August, 2018.
Before making attempt to conquer the Khakaborazi, which is famous for its hardships and treacherous weather condition, three mountaineers will make mountaineering practices at Ama Dablam Mountain, in Nepal. The Ama Dablam is higher than the Khakaborazi and the former is 6812 m above sea level.
It is all Myanmar Expedition and we would like to express objectives of HTOO Group of Companies and HTOO Foundation for sponsoring the Expedition.
(1)Since the satellite technology has occurred, it is said that Gamlamrazi is higher. In 2013, during USA-Myanmar friendship hiking expedition, when measured with Juniper Archer 2, US technology, it is found that Gamlamrazi’s height is 5870 meters. Since Khakaborazi’s height is 5881 meters, hence the result is that Gamlamrazi is lower than Khakaborazi by 11 meters. Therefore, after measuring with Juniper Archer 2 technology, it can be scientifically proved that Khakaborazi is not only the highest in Myanmar, but also in South East Asia
(2)As per objective of HTOO Foundation, basic natural tourism will be developed around Putao Region and also the livelihood of the natives in the area.
(3)There are 18 villages on the way to Khakaborazi Expedition, of which national costumes will be donated for them, and also at the same time to preserve their dialect languages, culture and practices as much as possible, as per objectives of HTOO Foundation.
(4)Not only local, but also foreign mountaineers become aware of Khakaborazi and also to develop hiking and mountaineering sports in Myanmar.
(5)By developing hiking and mountaineering sports in Myanmar, it can raise Myanmar’s dignity in the world, while it can also support for the development of physical and mental of Myanmar people.
Khakaborazi Wildlife Natural Park is very spacious and because many people hardly reach the area, there are poachers and illegal loggers. Therefore, it is required to prevent and preserve it. For this purpose, HTOO Group of Companies Chairman U Tay Za has raised this issue and assisting in required forest conservation, and at the same time trying to become Khakabrazi, one of the World’s Heritage.
