Thenzawl, Mizoram, India



Mizoram, India

Thenzawl is known to be the handloom centre of Mizoram. The colorful and traditional ‘puan’ that the Mizo women so proudly flaunt during festivals and other occasions are mostly hand-woven in the houses of Thenzawl. The sleepy town in Mizoram is now famously known as the ‘Handloom City’. For the uninitiated, ‘puan’ is the traditional wrap-around skirt worn by the Mizo women. Our introduction to Thenzawl, along with Hmuifang was on a rainy day in the last leg of our week-long Mizoram trip.


Thenzawl is also known for its waterfalls. The highest waterfall in Mizoram, the Vantawng Waterfall and the Tuirihiau Waterfall (this one is so hard to pronounce!) are located in Thenzawl. Hmuifang, on the other hand, is one of the most beautiful hill stations in Mizoram. To call is a hill station in Mizoram is a bit funny because Mizoram is mostly a hilly state. But since we were just back from Champhai Valley, we found the charm of Hmuifang very appealing
