Aizawl

Few people are aware that the Tropic Of Cancer passes through Aizawl. It gives this first city of Mizoram, compared to other places in the state, an exotic twist. Citadel-like it stands with its lofty perch (4000 ft) on a ridge overlooking the lush Tlawng River valley. To its north lie the hills of Durtlang where there’s an interesting zoological garden. Explore the museum, which stocks an interesting collection of costumes, artifacts, and historical relics that are important to Mizo culture. Shop for traditional crafts and woven textiles such as Puan, with its intricate weave in many colors, at Bara Bazar. It also stocks a range of baskets and cane and bamboo items. Aizawl is a great base for a tourist to explore the enchanting offerings and places of the Abode of the Highlanders.
