The Arakan Mountains (Burmese: ရခိုငရ

် ို ိုးမ), also known as the Rakhine Mountains, are a

mountain range in western Myanmar, between the coast of Rakhine State and the Central
Myanmar Basin, in which flows the Irrawaddy River. It is the most prominent of a series of
parallel ridges that arc through Assam, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Myanmar.

The Arakan Mountains run from Cape Negrais in the south in to Manipur, India in the north.
They include the Naga Hills, the Chin Hills, and the Patkai range which includes the Lushai
Hills.[1] These mountains are submerged in the Bay of Bengal for a sufficiently long stretch and
emerges again in the form of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
