Welcome to Hakha
Hakha (ဟားခါးျမိဳ႕), the capital of Chin State, is precariously located along a series of shifting hillsides above and beneath Bo Gyoke Rd, the main drag through town. Landslides are a regular occurrence, especially in the rainy season (May to October). Indeed, so perilous is Hakha's position that in 2015 a team of German geologists said Hakha was too dangerous to live in and recommended moving the capital. That isn't going to happen. Instead, trees and grass are being planted in an effort to stop erosion. Falling rocks and earth apart, Hakha is a friendly, scruffy place dominated by its many churches. Surrounding the town is some gorgeous, almost completely unknown countryside, which is home to many villages. Best of all, the locals are uniformly happy to see foreigners. With only around 50 to 100 Westerners visiting annually – almost all of whom are missionaries or aid workers – you're guaranteed some attention here.
