Come Run – Come All! MRTI is gearing up for the February 22-24th Thandaung Gyi Mountain Race Weekend. The intention of this race is to develop a tourism industry for the community, and therefore increase livelihood generation for its residents.
The run draws attention to the majestic hills of Thangdaung Gyi, and attracts domestic and international visitors who buy local food, souvenirs and tourism services during the weekend. The Thangdaung Gyi Tourism Development Working Group, the local committee, work enthusiastically to capture the potential that eco-tourism offers for more profitable and sustainable livelihoods for residents.
