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.

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.
