Hey explorer, 

Although I live in a tier-2 city in the Southern part of India, my life is similar to your life living in a tier-1 city - loud horns disturb my early morning dreams daily, I jog to catch the bus on time, and more such instances make me feel irritated about life. 

So, to take a short break from my routine, I looked for places opposite the early mornings I just told you. That's when I came across Hmuifang in Mizoram. The more I looked into it, the more I got mesmerized. 

But why? Scroll up!

Why Hmuifang?

Imagine your life is a loop in this concrete jungle. Every day is a rush – alarms blaring, cars honking, deadlines looming. After a long week, your mind is a tangled mess that makes you say, "Oh god I need some fresh air." That's where Hmuifang comes into force. 

Hmuifang isn't like the city. Here, the mornings greet you with birdsong, not sirens. The rustle of leaves disturbs the day, not the screech of brakes. It's a place where the biggest worry is getting lost on a scenic mountain trail, not stuck in traffic.

Hey Hey!

How about we learn something each time we discover a new place or break down the history of a place you might have heard once at least?

Hmuifang's history has something to do with the Mizo people. The very name means "Peak" in Mizo. The Mizo chiefs protected the mountain's forests, while The Hmuifang Tourist Resort stands on land that once belonged to a Mizo chief as a bridge between the past and present.

To enjoy nature's beauty and the local life, you must go past 1619 meters above sea level. The journey to Hmuifang will take you through virgin forests overflowing with diverse flora and fauna. To boost your spirit, a source of life for the region, the Tuirial River, originates here gleaming. 

The Mizo culture pulsates through Hmuifang. The warmth and hospitality of the Mizo people are legendary, and their traditions are kept alive through festivals like the Anthurium Festival and Thalfavang Kut. These celebrations showcase their music, dance, and unique way of life. 

Mizo, a Tibeto-Burman language, is the dominant language spoken in Hmuifang. However, some understand Hindi and English. Yet, getting around requires you to speak the native language (if not some common phrases). So, here are a few daily phrases in Mizo.

- I lawmna chu ka dawn e - You're welcome.
- Chibai - Hello / Greetings.
- Hei ka duh - I want this.
