Althea Z.H Kimi is from Mizoram. She says "I am a person who is not that active on certain things but when I find something which I like and which I would give my all for there can be no stopping me. I am not a person of great abilities and have had many embarrassing events but it is these things which shaped the unpleasant person I am today. I am a unique person and am proud of myself".
Althea Z H Kimi from St. Paul's Higher Secondary School, Mizoram is talking about Tan Tlang during an event organised by INTACH.
Tan Tlang is around 85 km from Champhai, it is 6356 ft above sea level located near Vaphai village.
The mountain itself continues to be spectacular, majestic and changing colours as the sun moves across the sky, exuding an aura of mystery all around. It is 6356 ft high from the sea level and is located near Vaphai village which is around 85 km from Champhai town (around 280 km from Aizawl City). The rich hinterland, the abode of the pretty fairies called 'Lasi', the birds and the beasts had been decimated. No wonder the inhabitants had faded away without any trace, probably led by Chawngtinleri (Queen of Beautiful Fairies) herself to greener pastures, perhaps, to 'Buannel Ram', the paradise of the creatures of the forest.
