Welcome to Rural Mizoram
Mizoram’s pretty, green hills get higher as you head east towards the Myanmar border. Champhai is widely considered the most attractive district, where you’ll find Murlen National Park, known for its resident population of hoolock gibbons. The small town of Saitual is a good stopover on the road to Champhai. Very close to Champhai is pretty Tamdil Lake, ringed by lush mountains. Further afield is the stunning Blue Mountain, Mizoram’s highest peak at 2147m. It’s considered by Mizos to be the abode of gods, but its slopes are said to be haunted by ghosts. Hiking options are also available in the region, but it's advisable to enter the wilderness only with an experienced local tour guide.
