“Tourist Resort of Reiek, - A lovely place to stay”

Reviewed 2 January 2017

While visiting the Reiek Heritage village we spent some time at the Tourist Resort of Reiek,
Reiek is a beautiful and picturesque place on a hilltop and this resort gives you a cosy place to stay and enjoy the surroundings including some trekking. The food is good and reasonably priced.
We had a luncheon party and we enjoyed the outing.

Thank kc j

Reiek has a typical Mizo village consisting of the distinctive traditional huts of the different Mizo sub-tribes, Mizo chieftain’s house, a bachelor’s dormitory and that of a widow has been created and maintained by Tourism Department of Mizoram. The houses are fully furnished giving the visitor a peek into the glorious past of the valiant highlanders. A few Mizo modern houses have also been constructed nearby to show the changes that have taken place in the Mizo way of life in keeping pace with the modern developments.

It is like a museum of the ancient Mizo way of life. The Mizo traditional and culture were still prevalent just a few decades back. Houses were made of bamboo and woods with thatch roof. Rice was pounded in a big wooden mortar. The walls have decors of animals heads and horns and homes have a spacious kitchen with a fireplace. All these traditional implements and attributes of the Mizos seemed like a thing of the past now.
The typical Mizo village has few huts designed in the tradition way and the huts contained certain entities that are central and an important part of daily Mizo life like the fireplace, mortars, bamboo basket for keeping chickens, corn grinding machine, wooden tool for spinning yarn out of cotton, bamboo baskets with straps for carrying rice and other commodities to field etc.On the right side of the entrance, there's a hut bigger than other huts. It is known as Zawlbuk or bachelor's dormitory. It was spacious and in a tribal setup, it was always the largest house. In the olden days it was where bachelors would assemble every night after working in the paddy field. It was a place of learning and where oral traditions were kept alive, passed down from one generation to another.

Reiek is located at about 28 km from Aizawl, takes about an hour to reach there. The Heritage village shows old and new Mizo village with hut, dormitory, etc. However, the village is under renovation and is in bad shape. Nothing much can be gathered. The most interesting part is the climb to Reiek Tlang. We started at 6:30 AM and after reaching the top could return back by 9:00 AM. Good view from the top, could not see the sunrise due to overcast. Stayed at the Reiek Tourist Lodge of Government. Decent stay, booked two cottage rooms, average but clean rooms. Stayed on 9th Oct. Food in the restaurant was home style. Good place to spend a day or night.

A short distance from Aizawl,the capital city of Mizoram, lies this sprawling mountain village with rocky cliffs with well-preserved natural forests. This is the site of annual Mizo festival showcasing the rich cultural heritage of this christian society which was once a land of hunting hillmen.The few cascades along the way are photographers delight.
