Welcome to Tiddim
About two hours' drive from Kalaymyo into the Chin Hills, the road forks: south to Falam and Hakha, north to Tiddim (တီးတိန္ျမိဳ႕) and the Myanmar–India border. This part of northern Chin State is even less visited than the regions further south, despite the fact that the area around Tiddim is home to Kennedy Peak, Chin State's second-highest mountain. Tiddim, also known as Tedim or Teddim, is the ideal place to break the arduous journey to mystical Rih Lake. The town itself is small and scrappy, with many churches – although some nearby villages are still animist – and is inhabited by curious, welcoming locals. And, like the rest of this part of Myanmar, it's set amid stunning countryside that's ripe for exploration.
