Hmuifang Trail Eco-Tourism

Hmuifang hill is about 5000ft high above mean sea level. The hill range runs north to south and most of the western side is almost vertical and could be quite challenging for adventure tourists for Rock climbing.

One can reach Aizawl by daily flight from Kolkata/Guwahati and take three hours drive from Aizawl airport to Hmuifang Resort. One can either stay in the cottages or make shift tent available for hire.

Activity’s suggested:
1. Mountain Biking: Rent Bike from the Tourist Resort and follow any of the following Trails
a) Trail One:Biking to the hill top and Hmuifang/Chawilung /Sumsuih/Thiak village for amateurr
b) Trail Baktawng 6 hours biking required and on the way visit Mr Zion’s families who is having more than 50 wives

c) Trail Sialsuk : 8 hours Biking. First stop @ Sialsuk town and goto Ngei-ngei-tlang Romantic Spot and further down to River Changte and halt for lunch. Biking up and up to Damdiai and back to Hmuifang Resort.

d) Trail Lungleng 8 hours Bike to Lungleng village on way back to Aizawl

2. Walking Trail : Walk to nearby village and share experiences with shy villagers, if lucky the YMA can show you cultural dances. Nearby villages are –

    • Hmuifang  one km

  • Chawilung five km
  • Thiak six km
  • Maubuang 10 km
  • Sateek 20 km

can also be found around the Resort. For expert rare amphibians and lizards can also be seen. One has to be ready to to trek down to River Changte or small stream in the eastern valleys to have deeper exploration.

4. Home Stay : If you are anytarian you can join the villagers as guest but be ready to join their food habits. Could be interesting for those having strong palette

  1. Suggestion for the Trekking route seems much better and exciting than the one we are now using for the YHAI National Trekking & Caving Expeditions…that is…from Luangmual to Vaipuanpho, Ailawng, Reiek, Hawlhhah, Nghalchawm ,Sihhmui to Luangmual Base camp.Are there any Caves in the route mentioned??Kindly post details

  2. Another thing is…the road for the Trekking should not be mettalled…For Biking it maybe good but these tourists seems to prefer to see the natural beauty,its geographic settings,its topography,its varied flora and fauna avian life etc etc…for they will be coming mainly for outdoor recreational activties…tui,inthiarna leh eitur leh Base camp tur te a harsa ngem le????????

  3. with people realising that eco-tourism and our ethnicity are the only things we can sell in the tourism market, protection & preservation of natural-ity is taking the front seat in the face of an aggressive commercial need to’develop’. The challenge is on

    • Belated though its like torn between two lovers – one to get more tourist visit our place to create employment the other protect your site and donot welcome tourist. We got to keep the balance.
