'The main ranges [of the Chin Hills] run mainly north to south and vary in height from 5,000ft to 9,000ft, feet among the most important being the Letha or Tang, which is the watershed between the Chindwin and Manipur Rivers; the Imbukklang, which divides the Sokte tribe the Whenohs and sheds the water from its eastern slopes into Upper Burma and that from its western slopes into Arakan; the Rongklang, which, with its prolongations, is the main watershed of the southern hills, its eastern slopes draining into the Myitha and thus into the Chindwin, while the western face drains into the Boinu river, which, winding through the hills discharges itself eventually into the Bay of Bengal' ['The Chin Hills: Vol. I', B. S. Carey and H. N. Tuck, Rangoon, 1896, p.6]
