As the flight landed at the small airstrip surrounded by green all around, there was a mild excitement in my heart. I have finally arrived at the “Land of Blue Mountains”! Yes, that is what Mizoram is known as. As I came out of the airport, I was greeted with a bright blue and sunny sky. But there was a nip in the air. Lengpui Airport in Mizoram is a small airport. It was a white building standing tall and nothing more. I collected my luggage and started towards my homestay.
Mizoram is one of the remotest states in India and naturally received very less tourists. Surrounded by Assam, Tripura and Manipur on the northern end, Mizoram also shares its borders with Myanmar and Bangladesh. This oasis of tranquility is the home of the Mizos or the highlanders. Dominated by mountains and covered with lush forests, paddy fields and vineyards, Mizoram is a gorgeous place. The landscape of Mizoram is no doubt breathtaking, but what impressed me are its friendly people. The Mizos are a smiling lot and very helpful. I had spent some lovely time in the land of the highlanders (Mizoram also has got this name). Let me share you my experience at Mizoram.
