Caves

Milu Puk

Milu Puk means cave of skulls.  There is a big cave situated near the village Mamte in Lunglei district, about 130 Km from Lunglei town. In this cave a big heap of human skeletons were found.  The skeletons appeared to be of people who were taller than the Mizos and might have belonged to some other race inhabiting the area before the Mizos came.  The Legend is that these people belonged to a tribe called 'Tlau".

Pukzing Cave

Pukzing cave, which goes 25m inside is the biggest cave in Mizoram.  It is situated at Pukzing village near Marpara in the western hills within Aizawal district. The legend goes that the cave was carved out of the hills by a very strong man called Mualzavata, the name meaning a person who could clear hundred ranges of forest in one day.

Lamsial Puk

The cave Lamsial Puk is situated near the village Farkawn in the south-east side of Aizawl district.  This cave carries gruesome evidence of a fight between two neighbouring  villages in which many warriors were killed. The bodies of the warriors of the Lamsial village were kept in this cave.  The village is no longer there. But there are many skeletons in the Lamsial puk which recall this gory incident.

Kungawrhi Puk

It is a big cave situated on a hill between Farkawn and Vaphai villages in the South-east part of Aizawl district.  The folktale associated with this cave speaks of a beautiful young girl named Kungawrhi, after whom this cave was named.  She got married to a brave young man, named Pnathira. When the couple was going to Pnathira's village after the marriage, some spirits, bewitched by her beauty, abducted her. The spirits brought her to this cave and kept her confined in it.  She was later rescued  from the cave by her brave husband.
