Mizoram is one of the smaller states of India and one of the state in seven sisters. It offers peace, beauty and the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. You can only feel the sheer joy and serenity the state brings in once you land on its fresh, lush landscape. Rich in scenic treasures, the state boasts of the majestic Blue mountains, beautiful rivers like the Sonai and Mat and the tranquil Palak lake. Waterfalls and wildlife sanctuaries, boating and angling, bustling bazaars and heritage-rich mandirs – there is just so much to see and soak in, when in the state. More so, what makes it rather unique is its distinct culture and ethnicity.
Mizoram – means the land of the Mizos (the local tribe of the state). The local tribals here are extremely warm and creative. It’s interesting to learn about the Mizo culture and habits. Imagine interacting with locals clad in colourful happy attires and buying off intricately crafted shawls and bamboo carvings. The weather is more or less moderate throughout the year which adds on to its benefits as a tourist site. However visit between November and March for the best wintery feel.
Travel might be a bit of an issue so make sure you plan all transportation in advance. There is only one airport at Aizwal. Public transportation post 6 is problematic to find as the state shuts by the evening. For non-vegetarians, the local food here is a delight whereas vegetarians are advised to carry along some eatables as options are limited.
