The number of tourists arriving at the Timit valley, which is an important tourist spot in Chin State, has increased this year, according to U Shwe Htee Ohoe, the Minister of Transport and Communications for Chin State.
“Tourists can observe terraced farming of monsoon paddy, and grape fruits and strawberries, which are grown by local residents using water from the Timit creek,” the minister said on Monday.
Timit valley, which is eight miles wide, is located seven miles south of Haka town and 15 miles northwest of Htantlang. The valley is popular among tourists visiting Haka town.
The valley is the historical land of the Chin ethnic people, the minister added.
“The Timit valley has about 140 acres of agricultural land, and it can help the region achieve food sufficiency. The valley is always crowded as it is a nice place for local and foreign travelers to visit. In the winter, travelers can observe the beautiful yellow paddy fields. Some people come to the valley for taking wedding photos and traveling video clips,” said a local resident.
The wild flowers, scenic views, mountains, and wild animals at Timit Valley are a draw for local and foreign travelers.—Zo Hay Hsar
