Hi! I too have read the same news. The Thai-Myanmar crossing is at Mae Sot, while the Mynmar-India crossing is at Tamu, heading into the Indian state of Manipur whose capital is Imphal. Unfortunately, no sooner had the border posts opened up, than security problems in both Manipur and the areas around Mae Sot forced the authorities to put the shutters up again.
This news at least has given overlanders a glimmer of hope that one day soon they may ride all the way from Europe to Southeast Asia without hitting a stonewall in the form of closed borders and the need to fly over and miss a very alluring section.
