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.

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.

Caving

The deep caves of Mizoram invite adventure seekers from different parts of the country and are one of the most sought-after tourist places in the Northeastern state. Well-known caves in Mizoram include Lamsial and Pukzing caves in Aizawl district and Kungawrhi Puk Cave and Milu Puk in Lunglei. The Pukzing Cave is the biggest in Mizoram and also one of the most visited. Kungawrhi Puk Cave is particularly popular and is located about 30 km from Aizawl in Ailawng near Reiek. Many believe it to be the longest cave in the state of Mizoram, about 162 m long. Thrill seekers find the darkness, peculiar acoustics, and stalagmite formations particularly fascinating.

Home to several beautiful streams and rivers, Mizoram surprises tourists with a number of angling opportunities, thanks to ideal climatic conditions required for the sport. Some of the best places where you can indulge in angling are the Tamdil Lake in Aizawl and Chhimtuipui River in Saiha. While Tamdil is known for its diverse species of fish and prawns, Chhimtuipui River is known for its salmon, local trout, and catfish. The Palak Dil Lake situated in Mizoram’s southern region is also an amazing place for angling. Some of the fish species that you can find in the Palak Dil Lake are trout, mahseer, and crab.

Some of the most colorful renditions of the traditional Chapchar Kut (Spring Festival) are the ones organized by the Young Mizo Association (YMA), which has spearheaded the revival of old cultural traditions in Mizoram.
