Champai Caves

Champai is a small but magically beautiful district of Mizoram that is bestowed with pristine valleys resplendent in a carpet of thriving green grasses, fruits orchards, rhododendrons, and plantations around the settlements ascending over other smaller hills. Besides its picturesque and thriving green hills, Champai is also blessed with several interesting caves. 

Visiting the astonishing caves located at or near Champai District promises worthwhile experiences and stunning views of the green hills and valleys. As one starts heading higher, towards the Myanmar border, the hills turn greener and more attractive. Champai Caves of Mizoram tell stories of the past and some speak of interesting legends; many natural caves here have also originated from mass dislocation by tectonic forces and gravitation in Mizoram. The caves are mostly accessible during the dry season. 

Champai also makes one of the perfect bases for trekking and camping in the hills of Mizoram on various overgrown footpaths and faint jungle trails.
