Far beyond
Just midst of the mountains
There lived the tiny people
And did you see..............

.. And did you see the little people walking past by the small hills of the town called Aizawl. Welcome to the land of simple people of Aizawl. Perched in a ridge at 4,000ft, overlooking the Tlawang River Valley this small town with small people encloses a number of beauties in it. Watch them out!


Flashback :
N.C.Hills district was a part of Kachari Kingdom before 1832. The kingdom was extended from Jamuna in the North to the foot-hills of Lushai Hills in the south . The Dimasa Kachari kings had their Capitals successively at Dimapur, Maibang, Kashpur & lastly at Horitikor ( Karimganj district near Badarpur ).

In 1830, the Dimasa king Gobinda Chandra was assasinated by his own general Gambhir Singh, after that the British annexed the southern part of the kingdom on 14th August 1832 under the doctrine of Lapsi. The rest was ruled by last Dimasa General Tularam. In 1837 a portion of Tularam's kingdom was further annexed to the British Empire & constituted into a sub-division of Nagaon district in 1837 with Head quarter at Asalu. In 1854, on the death of Tularam, the remaining portion of his kingdom was finally annexed to the British Empire & added to the Asalu sub-division. In 1867 this sub-division was abolished & apportioned into three parts among the districts Cachar, Khasi & Jaintia Hills & Nagaon. Later on it became a part of India.

Its a place filled with adventure, fairy tail stories and festivals. All the fun loving people will find it a charming place amongst the hills.

Aizawl
Aizawl at its best

  • Mizoram State Museum : For some History attracts, if it does the same for you, its the right place to visit.
  • Tlangnuam : The drab tower is the place which gives you one view of the entire city.
  • Food Outlets - DhabaRestaurant, Zote Bakery, Beijing Blue, Basilica Restaurant and the Glenary's are some of the best outlets of Aizawl to try out.


Where and Why

You can book a ticket on the Alliance Air which flies three days a week - Calcutta - Aizawl - Imphal - Aizawl. (Monday - Wesnesday - Friday). (Check it out as the airlines and the timings differ from season to season). Your guide will be at the airport to show you the way to the pre booked hotel . Hotel Chief is a good choice if you like so.

Its multi cuisine restaurant is famous for its cusines. Have a heafty breakfast of the hotel. Usually its the perfected breakfast of jam, eggs, butter, sandwitches, fruits and juice with tea and coffee as compliment which makes up for the breakfast. After having your fill sit in the hotel cab along with your tour guide to explore the hilly bounty.

The first place in Aizawl you can reach is the Chaltlang; highest point in the city, standing at a height of 3,713ft . Near to this place is the Tlangnuam; another place with the height. Standing here you can see the entire city of Aizawl with lush greenery and the clouds passing by. As you wave to the clouds, take out your camera to have some wonderful exquisite photographs.

If you are in the spring season here then take a chance to see the Chapchar Kut festival in the AR Grounds. Click your camera at flashing light speed till the festival is over (and yes the roll too!). (Other festival are there like the Mim Kut (maize harvest in Aug - Sep) and Pawl Kut (post harvest in Dec-Jan). The dress, the music, the beautiful colors and the bright plnk faced ladies; all add to the charm of the dance and music festival. For a moment you will loose yourself in this extravaganza.

In the afternoon have lunch at one of the llocal hotels in the open greenery amongst the mountains. Food in Aizawl is expensive; even than try out some pastries at the famous Glenary's and trying the Chinese at Basalica.

And then there was one thing left to do. Shopping ! Typical iptichei bags, traditional puanchei wraparounds and small purses are some of the things you can load youself with. It great to do shopping here, do try yourself! Around the time to get back to the hotel sit in the cab and move towards the the famous Dhaba Resturant; so famous for its tandoori!

And when you are visiting Aizwal, I suggest at least two days stay at the place so that you can also visit the nearby beautiful places like Tamdil lake(about 85 kms from Aizawl) and Faalkwan (about 18kms ).


Suggestions
  • Take extra clothings with you especially if you are visiting Aizawl in the winter season.
  • Drink only boiled or Mineral water and eat only at standard resturants as gastrointestinal problems are prominent here. Water can be a problem in dry months; check out before you move in any of the hotels.
  • Most of the Aizawl closes by 6 pm, even the shopping centers. So try to wake up early to get most of the town.
  • You need to take a permit from Govt. of India for visiting Aizawl. For the permit and other necessities, contact us.
  • Book a hotel in advance and try to take a guided tour if on a individal tour. Or ask your travel to book a hotel for you in advance.
