Thanks to its dramatic hills and pleasant climate, Mizoram is loved by many who like calm and tranquil places. While tourism has just started to catch-up, this southernmost state of North East India, nestled between the rolling blue hills of Myanmar and the plains of Bangladesh, has a lot to offer to the curious visitor.
Roughly translating to ‘land of the hill people’, Mizoram with its dense forests and rich flora and its many mountain rivers, is one of the most unexplored states of the region.
While there is no written history about Mizoram, places like the Mizoram State Museum in Aizwal offer great insights about Mizo traditions, culture, and food.
With tribals accounting for its 95% population, Mizoram has the highest concentration of tribal people among all states of India and is one of the most literate states of the country. The state of Mizoram is also where the largest family of the world, that of Pu Ziona, with his 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandchildren lives.
