Mizoram

Mizoram is the furthest state of North East India. It is the land of the Mizo people who are spread over to neighbouring Myanmar and Bangladesh as well. The inaccessible and hostile hilly terrain has kept the Mizo people cocooned from the rest of the world for a long time. Aizwal is the capital of the state. Mizoram shares its border on the North with Manipur and Assam; on the west with Bangladesh and Tripura, and in the south and east with Myanmar.

Reaching Mizoram

By Air –  Mizoram is a landlocked state with its airport at Aizwal. The airport has direct flights to Kolkata, Guwahati and Imphal.

By Rail - There is a small railway station on the Mizoram – Assam border known as Bairabi. However, there is hardly any passenger train here and all tourist destinations of Mizoram is quite far from the Bairabi station. So although technically there is a train connection to Mizoram, it is of little use to the tourist.

By Road – The NH 108 connects Jampui hills of Tripura with Aizwal, the state capital, alternatively, NH306 connects Assam with Mizoram.

Among the alternatives, air travel is the best option for tourists to travel to Mizoram.
