Mizoram is the southernmost state of North East India – the land of the Blue Mountains. The Indian states of Manipur, Assam and Tripura bind the northern end of this small province with Myanmar forming most of its eastern boundary and Bangladesh its southern and western boundaries. The evergreen ranges of Mizoram hills with blooms of exotic flora and dense bamboo jungles rise sharply from the plains of Assam in a north south direction. These hills and plunging gorges are crisscrossed by gushing rivers and sparkling waterfalls. In sharp contrast to the dense jungles and steep hills is a rugged quilt of lush paddy fields all the way from the centre of the state towards the Myanmar border. Oral tradition reveals that the Mizos migrated from their homeland in China about 3 centuries ago, in search of new pastures and settled in these hills. Alzawi is the capital of Mizoram and near by are other interesting places like Champhai, Phawngpui Peak, etc.
Mizos are friendly and very hospitable. There has been a concerted effort to propagate their ancient cultural strains by clinging to their traditional roots resulting in bringing to the limelight some of the most vibrant ancient Mizo traditions, cultural heritage and colourful customs. Phawngpui is the highest peak of Mizoram. The Darnpa Wildlife Sanctuary is the best place to see bison and wild elephants.
Visitors are taken through various parts of Mizoram and are introduced to the cultural traditions ofthe state. Mizoram is particularly interesting for people interested in motor cycling and cycling. Visitors also participate in the traditional festival of Chapcher Kut, celebrated at the end of February when winter starts receding and the festival commemorates spring and the promise of a good harvest.
