22 January 2008


I visited Vairengte, a small town in Kolasib district of Mizoram last year in 2007. That was my first visit to Mizoram. Maybe one of these days, if I can recollect, I will try to write the experiences of my visit. Vairengte is around 130 Kms from Aizawl, State Capital of Mizoram. It is a bordering town of Mizoram with Assam. The National Highway-54, which originates in Assam passes through this border town.

On December 10, 2007 at around 5 in the morning, we (L. Keivom, David Buhril, and me) boarded a plane at Palam Airport in New Delhi and flew to Kolkata. After a stressful wait for around 6 hours at Kolkota Airport, we boarded a small Air Deccan plane and flew up and touch down at Lengpui Airport around 2:00-2:30 in the afternoon. I didn’t have the extra time to click much photos enroute to Vairengte from Lengpui via Sairang Road (?) though I really wish I had. It was already dark and almost late when we reached Vairengte.

I forgot the name of the place, it was a small village inhabited mostly (?) by road labourers. We got down from the car to rest our tiring body for a few minutes and also drank the spring water as well. When I asked one of the labourers where they came from, he told me that they were from Jharkhand.

The next day, we toured around Vairengte and took some pictures and also captured the sun settling down over the horizon.
