Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram, works at its own pace. As a tourist you may not find much to do here, but as a traveller looking for an alternate lifestyle, this may be your escape into solitude or into an untouched part of nature.
Aizawl has many attractions located close to each other. A road trip is highly recommended to enjoy all of them. For romantics, the KV Memorial or Mizo Taj and Phulpui grave are enchanting. Bara Bazar and the main handicrafts market offer you an insight into the typical Mizo way of life. The Mizoram State Museum in the centre of Aizawl is an option for those interested in the cultural history of the place, showcasing ancient relics, traditional dresses and others.
To experience Mizo life closely, you can't miss out on a stay at the Reiek Heritage Village. Spend some time at the Tamdil lake and Vantawang falls for magnificent views. If you are around in September and February, celebrate local festivals such as the Anthurium Festival and Chapchar Kut Festival.
