text: To the south the land of the Kalyo Kengyus borders on the hills of the Southern Sangtams, and it was here that J. H. Hutton visited several of their villages when he went with a Survey Party towards the 12,622 feet high Saramati, the highest peak of the Patkoi Range, which was first climbed in 1935 by Po Nyu, a young Karen. But a large area extends between Noklak and these Southern Sangtam villages, and it is here that the map shows the white of unknown country.
