Vantawng Khawhthla, Aizawl District

Situated about 95 km to the south of Aizawl and a ten minute drive from Thenzawl, Vantawng Khawhthla or 'Vantawng Falls' is the highest and the most spectacular waterfall in Mizoram. It is named after Vantawnga who was said to be an excellent swimmer. So good a swimmer was Vantawnga, so the legend goes, that he could hover in the cascading water as some fish do, but unfortunately during one of such escapades, a drifting log fell from above and killed him. The height of the fall is recorded as 750 ft and though it is difficult to get close to it because of the sheer forested hillsides surrounding it, a comfortable viewing tower has been constructed by the Tourism Department.
