It has a background of rich heritage, the hamlets in the town have monuments and monoliths that depict success in war, valorous hunting, personal distinctions and achievements. There are many paddy fields alongside the valley, and hence it is rightly called as the " Rice Bowl of Mizoram". It also serves as a base point for trekking.
