One of the biggest mountains of the Hump!

Alistair Watt shares the fascination with CNAC and aviation in Asia during the Second World War. He stumbled across this blog, made a few comments, sent an email, and was kind enough to share this photo of Mt. Kawakarpo, which is apparently on the Salween/Mekong divide astride the Hump Route.

Alistair went to the base of the main glacier.

Tomorrow, I’ll post a pic of one of his envelopes that flew with CNAC during the war.

The mountaineer in me would like to point out that this is one hell of a fine looking peak, and probably remains unclimbed…
