welcome to Mizoram

Mizoram is a mountainous state nestled in the southern tip of the north-east region of India. Mizoram is covered with verdant forests dominated by thick bamboo groves, teeming with vibrant wildlife; sheer cliffs; and breath-taking waterfalls. The entire region of Mizoram is dotted with unique places/landmarks of myriad folklores and picturesque villages with houses built on stilts. Mizoram is a land of dramatic seas of morning mists that enfold islands of hills and peaks. Mizoram is the land of the Highlanders, or the Mizos. For anyone looking for a quiet holiday or outdoor activities in pristine and peaceful setting, Mizoram is a destination worth your while.

Standing aloof from the adjacent plains of Assam and the other neighboring states, Mizoram remains an exotic location. Mizoram shares more than one-third of its boundary with Bangladesh and Myanmar. Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram, is still one of the least-frequented places in India. With a population of 888,573 only, Mizoram is one of the most sparsely-populated states. Mizoram has a moderate and pleasant climate throughout the year. Mizoram is an idyllic land of great natural beauty having rich variety of flora and fauna.

Though Mizoram is still considered remote and hence, an unfrequented destination, the location of Mizoram itself helps maintain its quaint appeal, as do its scenic landscapes of bluish hills and mountains, steep rocky cliffs, serene lakes, and deep valleys of gurgling streams plunging down sheer drops to form spectacular waterfalls. To the more adventurous spirit, the rugged terrains and rivers of Mizoram are ideal for various outdoor sports and activities. Mizoram has a fantastic array of wildlife, especially the birds, and is an added attraction to nature lovers visiting Mizoram.

Getting There
By Air

Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram, is air-linked daily by major airlines from Kolkata and Guwahati. It is also connected to Imphal by air. The airport Lengpui is only 30 kms from Aizawl.




By Rail

At present there is no direct rail link but to the state Bairabi, on Assam Mizoram border.  The nearest railhead is in Silchar in Assam, 184 kms from Aizawl.

By Bus

National Highway 54 connects Aizawl with the rest of the country through Silchar. Buses, taxis, and Sumo services are available from Silchar to Aizawl (6-8 hrs). Night services are also available. Aizawl is also accessible by road from Shillong (420kms) and Guwahati (520kms).

Getting Around

Aizawl lies on a mountain ridge, so roads to different places run more or less parallel to the mountain side along elevation contours. This means if you need to go vertically up or down, it may be faster to take a foot path than to go by road. Nonetheless, foot paths are steep and the city is quite large, so to go places that are significantly far, you will need a car.

There are numerous buses routes that connect various places and most will run through the town centre (Dawrpui - North to South and Civil Hospital South to North). Bus fares vary and it’s best to ask the conductor. However, a relatively short trip of 1 km costs around Rs 5 (Jan 2012). 

There are nearly 5000 taxis licensed to ply the roads in Aizawl and are readily available. There is a taxi firm called Sure Taxis that offers a radio taxi service, and they find and negotiate rates on your behalf and dispatch taxis to your location; they don't charge anything to you.
