Champhai, a bustling commercial town at the Indo - Myanmar border, is a beautiful place that offers plenty of tourist attractions. Besides its breath-taking beauty, Champhai is a store house of ancient relics, monuments, legends and folk lore. It is also considered as the fast-emerging 'fruit bowl' of Mizoram. Well-tended vineyards, passion fruit and the recently introduced kiwi fruit plantations in the surrounding hill slopes provide a kaleidoscope of colours, which are captivating to look at. The Champhai district is believed to be the entry point and settlement of the first Mizo migrants to India. Champhai has a rich heritage; scattered in small hamlets and villages are monuments and monoliths that depict success in war, hunting, personal grieves, and achievements. Also preserved are landmarks wherein legends and folklore were spun. At the base of the town, towards the Myanmar border is the Champhai Valley. Surrounded on all sides by undulating hills, is a wide expense of rice fields, popularly known as the 'rice bowl' of Mizoram, which presents one of the most spectacular views in the region.
Champhai is an ideal tourist destination because of its beautiful landscape, its rich history and folklore, and modern comforts that subtly blend together to make it an ideal place to plan time off for relaxation and recreation.
