Glimpse of Champhai
Champhai, a bustling commercial town at the Indo-Myanmar border is a beautiful place that offers plenty of tourist attractions. Besides its breathtaking beauty, Champhai is a store house of ancient relics, monuments and memorials of legends and folk lore. Located 192 kms from Aizawl at an elevation of 1678 mts, Champhai is also fast emerging as the fruit bowl of Mizoram. It is the capital of Champhai District which covers an area of 3185.83 sq.kms. Well tended vineyards, passion fruit and the recently introduced ‘Kiwi’ fruit plantations in the surrounding hill slopes that provide a kaleidoscope of colour are captivating scenes worth visiting. The market place at Champhai is a shopper’s paradise. Household items, cloths, electronics, cosmetics etc. of all ranges can be selected at bargain prices. Visitors are however warned not to indulge in excess purchase to avoid custom penalty. Believed to be the entry point & settlement of the first Mizo migrants to India, Champhai has a rich heritage background, scattered in small hamlets and villages are monuments and monoliths that depict success in war, hunting, personal grieves and achievements.

Its beautiful landscape, the mingling overawe of history and legend and images of modern day development that subtlety blend together makes Champhai an ideal tourist destination both for the adventurous and the holiday maker opting for relaxation and recreation. At the base of the town, towards the Myanmar border is Champhai valley. Surrounded on all sides by undulating hills, is a wide expense of rice field, popularly known as the rice bowl of Mizoram, which viewed from Champhai is a spectacular scene, one of the most awe-inspiring views of Mizoram.
