Best Time to Visit Mizoram
November to March is the best time to visit Mizoram with the mercury dropping to a comfortable range between 11º and 29°C. The sky is a brilliant blue and the morning mists envelope the valleys between the hills presenting a visual treat. This is lovely time to go trekking in the hills and also see nature at it’s very best.
The rains come in May to Mizoram and continue till September making the region very wet and humid. So it may be best to avoid travel here at this time of the year.
The Mizos celebrate an agarian festival called ‘Kut’ and it is celebrated thrice a year – March, September and then again in November. The festivities are connected with the planting, ploughing, and harvesting of the crops. Christmas is also celbrated with fervour all over Mizoram.
