11th.aLand. Reach Yahine on the Meinam. From Yahine there are various routes to Zimme. The shorter route is through jungle, and is practicable only for strong parties.
The other is by a branch of the Meinam, which proceeding in a north-east direction enables the traveller to pursue this journey in comparative tranquillity, the banks of the river being thickly peopled by peaceable Shans.
It is possible to reach Labong and Zimme by water from Yahin. One of the Burmese headmen here tells me he has done so, but that the river is so full of rocks and rapids, that it took him exactly a month to perform the journey.
From Labong to Zimme all accounts agree is only* morning's march.
