The train from Guwahati to Bhairabi (Mizoram) follows the same route as the Guwahati-Jiribam until Badarpur Junction. From Badarpur Junction, the train heads south into the heart of the Mizos. You will witness the colourful Mizo culture, innovative local dishes, whitewashed Catholic churches, traditional Mizo villages, surreal water bodies and tea gardens on this route. Bhairabi is the end of the railway line. From here, you can hire a taxi to get to Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram.
How to get there
By air: Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Airport (280km), Agartala is well connected to major Indian cities.
By train: Bhairabi is not connected to major cities by direct trains. You have to rely on passenger trains to get here. Arunachal Junction and Badarpur Junction are the nearest transit points to board express trains to Agartala, Guwahati and Delhi.
By road: Bhairabi doesn't have reliable bus service, therefore, it is best to either fly to Imphal or rely on passenger trains to get here.
Best time to visit: October to June is the best time to visit. The temperature ranges from 10 to 35 Celsius. It is best to avoid the monsoon months from July to September.
