Lampi The west coast of lampi (50 miles from Kawthaung)

Lampi is the most popular island for the tourists in Kawthaung archipelago. This island is rich of many wild animals, Mangrove rivers, birds, clean water and Coral Reefs. It will take three days in Lampi to see in detail. There are nine different parts in it. They are as follow-

  • A.South Mangrove River
  • B.Middle River
  • C.No. 60 Island
  • D.Crocodile River
  • E.Ko Fot Island
  • F.Salet Galet
  • G.Wa Ale
  • H.South Kan Zar Gyi Island
  • I.North Kan Zar Gyi Island 

A. SOUTH MANGROVE RIVER

  1. The stopovers are about five to ten meters deep. Normally, wait there till the tide up. Then continue upstream the river by fiber boat. According to the tourists, the roots of mangrove trees are the shelters for the fishes and prawns to breed and grow up, also protect from the strong wind. So, mangrove trees shouldn’t be deforested.
  2. If you upstream the mangrove river, you will see thousands of mangrove trees, birds, orchids, pythons sleeping in the tree, playful monkeys in the tree and other wild animals. When I went there with three tourists in 1999, I saw the foot prints of the elephants. The fishermen said, “there are two elephants on Lampi Island, never disturb anyone.” I saw them again in March, 2001 while I was taking a walk on the beach in Lampi.

Sandbank and Water

White sand and Long beach. Muddy water when tide up and down. Normally, water is clean.

Wild Animals

As the island is big, there are so many wild animals on it such as elephants, Monitor Lizards, Snakes, Mouse, Deers, Monkeys, Swines, Porcupine and Armadillos.

Birds:

Horn Bills, King Fishers, Kites and Sea Eagles.

B. Middle Mangrove River

Has two good stopovers. Can see many mangrove trees, birds and wild animals if you follow the first creek. The tourists really enjoy it because of walking on the beach and taking the boats around the island. According to the fishermen, the elephants usually live near the middle river but never disturb anyone. Sometimes the elephants swim and walk on the sandbank.

C. No. 60 Island

Small round shaped and white sand, so the tourists have lunch and take a rest there. After getting up they do snorkeling because the water in the east is full of Coral Reefs. Several fishes and lobster are seen there. It’s a small island, no wild animals but the tourists like it so much because of Crystal Water.

D. Crocodile River

The old fishermen said, “there were a lot of crocodiles there.” It’s about 3-miles long and many mangrove trees beside the river. If you go there by boat when the tide ebbs, monkeys searching for the crabs are seen. It is the most interesting island because of sleeping pythons in the tree, swimming fishes, singing birds and blooming orchids.

E. Kubo Island

  1. It is a residence for Salon, Sea Gypsies because there are plenty of oysters and Sea cucumbers around this island. When I went there with a group of tourists in 2001, I saw a flock of Horn Bills, about one hundred, came to it in the evening .The nests of Hon Bills are there. So it is the only island in Myeik archipelagoes where many Horn Bills can be seen as well as can take the most beautiful pictures there.
  2. At the there big trees on the north island, about 2000 fly foxes or fruit Bats were resting .I saw many fly foxes searching for the food at about 6:00 pm. It’s a very beautiful island especially a moonlit night; so many tourists enjoy it very much.
  3. There is some fresh water well in the south island so some Salon stay there. As a shallow island, two stopovers are 5 to 8 meters deep.

F. Salet Galet (10.53.00N 98.05.00E)14 mile

  1. It is between lampi and Wa Ali Island. So, it is a very good shelter like a lake although the bad weather broke out. Some Salons live there. Fresh water wells can be seen there.
  2. The stopovers are shown on the map and 10 to12 meters deep. Can go along the mangrove creek and get to a small mountain, 385 meter height, also enjoy the beauty of Lampi, Wa Ali, Kanzargyi and Black islands on it.
  3. When the tide ebbs, a troop of monkeys, searching for the crabs and oysters as well as many birds, especially sea eagles can be seen there.
  4. As a peaceful place, Wild life and Crystal water, it becomes a tourist attraction.

The channel of water separating the island of Lampi and Wa-Ale Kyun is about 150 meters wide and about 2 miles long. On another side, the channel is banked with steep sloping rainforest and by fringing coral reef below. Anchorage is safe to sit out any storm. It is a much protected piece of water of outstanding beauty and is a good place to spot monkey, wild pigs, hornbills, sea eagle and other creatures of the Archipelago.

G. Wa Ale island.

  1. The stopover is in the western Wa Ale which is 10 to 15 meters deep. It is blue water and full of Coral Reefs, so it is the best place for snorkeling. It is also a good place for Surfing when the tide up, the waves come on the shore.
  2. As the wild animals live there, the footprints of animals can be seen on the white sand beach.
  3. The most interesting thing is that Sea Turtles lay eggs on it.
  4. Hiking through the foot path can attract the tourists.

Sandbank and water:

White sand and blue water.

Wild Life:

Cats, Monitor Lizards, Snakes, Monkeys, Swines, Mouse Deers and Birds.

Coral Reefs:

Snorkeling and diving are available because of the hard and soft corals.

H. South-Western Ganzaw Gyi island:

  1. Clear water and have so many Coral Reefs that Snorkeling is very good. A lot of fish live there, sometimes Sharks can be seen.
  2. There is a huge tree in the western small white sand bank, a good please to rest in the easy chair under it.

I. North–eastern Ganzar Gyi

It is very good for adventure trip. There are some Salon’s residences in the bay, some banana palms and plum trees are behind them which is a safe place to anchor in the open season.
