Mizoram is the southernmost outpost of North Eastern India. Cities of Mizoram
are sheltered in the lap of the blue mountains and are home to a range of exotic flora and dense bamboo jungles. As if to provide a beautiful contrast to the dense jungles and steep hills there are lush green paddy fields. The gushing rivers, vast blue sky and gleaming waterfalls add to the vibrant atmosphere of the cities.
Cities of Mizoram are mainly inhabited by the Mizos who have a very sincere code of ethics based on the term "Tlawmngaihna", which implies hospitability, kindness, unselfishness and helpfulness. There are two important festivals held in the cities, one is Chaphar Kut (related to Jhum cultivation) and the other is Pawl Kut. The major cities of Mizoram are Aizawl, Lawngtlai, Lunglei, Champhai.
