History, Geography and Culture of Mizoram
The north eastern state of Mizoram is an equitable society known where natives as well as tourists are treated with gentle equality. This is the unique and appealing aspect of Mizoram’s society that makes this state different from the other Indian states. Historically, the land is shrouded in mystery. But according to the oral legends, the first inhabitants or Mongoloid Mizos here migrated from their homelands in China about three centuries ago in search of new pastureland and settled in Lushai or Mizo hills. British during 1891-95 brought the territory under their rule. The region achieved its statehood in the year 1987 by becoming the 23rd state of India as Mizoram.

Geographically, the state shares international borders with Myanmar and Bangladesh. Domestically the state is lined with Assam, Tripura and Manipur. The land of Blue Mountains, Mizoram has a flourishing tranquil aura based on its hilly expanses, crisscrossing rivers, silvery streams and thick bamboo jungles. Highest among hills here is the Phawngpui — the Blue Mountain. The biggest river in this state is Chhimtuipui. The economy here is agrarian based on rice cultivations at Vanlaiphai and Champhai Plains.
