The Western Region of Saiha in the Southern part of Mizoram boasts of a mesmerising rock formation that resembles a castle. It is known for its geological marvel which is the craftsmanship of nature: a true feast for the eyes. Set in the pristine river of Kolodyne, Castle of Beino is a sprawling alley of rocks about 10 metres high on both sides of the river. The locals believe it to be a cursed castle and has mystical folklore surrounding it. It is said that the river queen of spirits inhabits the place acting as an ombudsman. This unfrequented destination must be explored with one’s own eyes for its untold beauty to be unravelled. Though it is not easily accessible during the monsoon season, the ideal time to visit is during the month of February to May. A motorboat and a local guide can be hired at reasonable rates.
