Hkakabo Razi is the most famous mountain in Myanmar / Burma and was targeted by several expeditions during English colonial times among other one with Mr. Frank Kingdon-Ward born on 6 November 1885 in Manchester. 



He was a botanist and the most active "plant hunter" in Burma. Actually he and other they were searching for the sources of the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) which finally they never found since there were just too many. I read the book Burma's Icy Mountains indicated above and if someone want to understand Burma Myanmar its essential to read it otherwise nobody can imagine whats up during that time.
