Mizoram is among the safest states, if not the safest, in India in terms of crime, personal safety and insurgency. Most people, including single female travelers, will not face any problems walking along the streets alone at night.


The main language in Mizoram is Mizo, but English is widely understood as it is taught in the schools. Though people here understand English, they may not necessarily respond in English and may respond in a few key words. This is not to be taken as a hostile gesture or indifference, it is just their inability to communicate in English. Many taxi/hire car drivers will understand Hindi to some extent.
