Gateway to Aizawl city , Mizoram

Seen here is a small road opening in Durtlang which not only leads to the main town Aizawl but also various other parts of the state Mizoram. As such it is known as The Gateway to Aizawl. Initially this passage was a narrow alley between two cliffs which led to traffic congestion. However it was widened up by chiseling the two sides using dynamite. The capital state as well as the largest city of Mizoram is Aizawl; the center of all important government offices, state assembly house and civil secretariat.Aizawl is also the main religious and cultural centers of the Mizos, the ethnic tribe of Mizoram.The city lies just north of the Tropic of cancer and is located at 3715 feet from the sea level. A birds eye view of the city will sure catch the attention of the beholder. Some of the notable places once you get to Aizawl city are Mizoram State Museum, Durtlang Hills, Mini Zoo, Bara Bazar, Luangmual Handicarfts Centre and Berawtlang Tourist Complex.
