This is the town’s bustling shopping hub where vendors are seen in traditional Mizo attire selling a wide selection of colourful wares ranging from river crabs, farm supplies and handmade products.

The museum is home to several interesting historical artefacts like traditional Mizo costumes, musical instruments, weapons etc.
  • Our next stop is at Durtlang Hill, situated about 5 kilometres away from Aizawl. Durtlang Hill provides stunning views of the surrounding landscape and we stop here for an al fresco lunch. In good weather it’s lovely to have a meal on top of the hill, while enjoying the scenic beauty of the place. Post lunch, we make our way to KV Paradise, one of the iconic landmarks of Durtlang. It is a three-storey mausoleum built by Khawlhring and dedicated to his wife Varte who died in a road accident in 2001. KV Paradise is located around 1 kilometre away from Durtlang Village across a narrow dirt-road.

Verdant forests surround the falls, making it difficult to get a close range view. Vantawng is situated in Vanva River in Thenzawl and can be seen from a distance as a gushing cascade of froth, milky white against the green of its environs.
