Lakes

The state has a number of beautiful lakes situated in different parts of its territory

Palak Lak

It is situated in an almost inaccessible area in the southern part of the state. It is in the Lakher region of Chhimtuipui district, 130 km south-west of Saiha, the district headquarters and 5 km from Pahu village. It is an oval lake, 200 m long and 150 m wide, occupying an area of 30 hectares.

The lake is surrounded by tropical evergreen and moist deciduous forests comprising of species like Dipterocarpus sp., Michelia sp., Schina Wallichin, Mesua ferrea, Chikrassia tabularies, cedrella tonna, Albizzia sp., Termemalia sp., Lagerstromia sp., Biscofia Javamica, Ficus sp., Artocarpus sp., Tetrameles nudiflore, bamboos, canes etc.

There are fish and crab in the lake. Bear, tiger, deer, wild pig, and variety of avifauna are found in the surrounding forests. In Mizoram, this is the only abode of aquatic birds, with the wild duck of different species.

Tamdil

Tamdil is situated in Aizawal district. It is about 110 km south-east of Aizawal town and 7 km from Saitual village. 'Tam' is a shortened form of the Mizo word 'antam' which means mustard plant and 'dil' means lake. Tamdil means a lake of mustard plants. A folklore associated with the lake says that there was a big mustard plant in the place where the lake is situated now and whenever this plant was cut off, water came out incessantly thereby creating the lake.

The lake is surrounded by tropical evergreen and moist deciduous forest with species like Sehenia Wallichii, Chikrassia tabularis, Albizzia sp., Artocarpus sp., Merus sp., bamboos etc. The aquatic fauna consists of fish. There are plenty of prawns in this lake. In surrounding forests bear, deer, wild pig and common avifauna are found.

Rungdil

It is situated 14 km from Suangpuilawn village in Aizawal district. It has an area of 2.5 hectares. Rungdil means lake of partridge. It acquired this name as at one time it was the habitat of a large number of partridges. 

Actually, it consists of two lakes, more or less alike, separated by a narrow stretch of land. It is said that if a pumpkin is cut into two halves and one is put in one lake, it will surface in the other lake. The two lakes are believed to have a subterranean connection. The lake is surrounded by tropical evergreen deciduous forests. Its flora and fauna are of the same type as found in and around the other lakes in Mizoram.
