Posted By : Panchoi/ 524

The “land of the Mizos”, Mizoram is a North-Eastern state with Aizawl as its capital city. Within the northeast region, it is the southernmost landlocked state, sharing borders with three of the Seven Sister States, namely Tripura, Assamand Manipur. The state also shares a 722 kilometre border with the neighbouring countries of Bangladesh and Myanmar. It is the 2nd least populous state in the country and covers an area of approximately 21,087 square kilometres of which 91% of the state is forested. About 95% of the current population is of diverse tribal origins that settled in the state, mostly from Southeast Asia and has highest concentration of tribal people among all states of India. Mizoram landscape is mostly rolling hills, rivers with major valleys. Mizoram, the lesser known North-Eastern state of India is inhabited by various tribes who practise a wide range of religious customs and cultural splendour. Blessed with a diverse range of geographical features, this small state brings excellent opportunities of travelling over the small hillocks with winding trails where one can get the adventurous feel of mountain biking. The landscape of Phawngpui Hills, Vantawang Falls or even Palak Lake looks incredibly picturesque whereas the heritage sites at Chhingpui talk about the forgotten past of the Mizo life. Typical food habit, dance forms, attires, and local music add zing to the overall cultural panorama of Mizoram and tend to be a great deal for any travel enthusiast who would love to taste off-beaten.
