Never visit this place.

I am a student at NIT MIZORAM, the worst college in the entire country should I say, but I'm going to talk about only Aizawl in Mizoram . . If you want to spend some good time like a holiday trip to this place, make sure you pack a lot of medication. Visit only the places which demand high fares and offer good food and services cause you have no clue how bad it is to live locally and have a mid-class trip to Aizawl. You will get bullied by people around you if you roam around the city, people will try to rag you and make you do some things, the police will never help you out but they'll support the locals, never pick a fight with the local cause the whole of Mizoram will be on you. Please try to understand that there are no good visiting spots here other than some peaks where you'll be able to get some nice clicks, but nothing more than that, the food here is terrible, total absence of any flavour, make sure you reside and eat only at top rated hotels which are hard to find as well. The only thing that you may like is the weather which constantly changes from kind of sunny to raining cats and dogs, it's always cold out there when compared to other parts of India. Please don't waste your time at this place, you seriously don't want to go to Mizoram unless you have any official business meeting I'm sorry if you felt this to be offensive or that I personally hate this place, but this is the reality.

Aizawl Overview

Aizawl, the capital city of the state of Mizoram, is a favoured destination of solitude seekers. Located on the Tropic of Cancer, on the Himalayan ranges, the city is one of the foremost cities in the north-eastern region of India.

The 112 year old hill fortress offers ample opportunities for sightseeing, recreation and adventure. Set in the midst of beautiful landscapes, the destination is situated on an elevated platform at an altitude of 4,000 ft above sea level. One of the highlighting characteristics of the region is timber houses positioned between profusion of flowers.

The cloudless blue skies, dewy mornings and sunlight streaming through the woods are ideal for a relaxing holiday. Along with the Tlawng River, the Turial River Valley gives an opportunity to visit the high hills of Durtlang and other adjacent areas.

The hill station of Aizawl also houses administrative houses like the State Assembly and Civil Secretariat. The state has several public sector offices and is a beehive of economic activities of the region.

Some of the attractions in Aizawl are the State Museum on Mcdonald Hill, known as Zarkawt, which exhibits various artefacts and historical relics related with Mizo culture. Chapchar Kut, Min Kut and Pawl Kut festivals are hosted in the city, which is celebrated with zeal in the traditional Mizo style.

The group performance displaying foot movements and colourful costumes of the famous Cheraw (bamboo dance) is a spectacular sight to witness in Aizawl. The region is popular for items like cane and bamboo items.

The north-eastern city experiences a pleasant weather all round the year with inappreciable changes in mercury levels. The monsoon months are pleasant and gentle. Therefore, Aizawl can be visited throughout the year.
