What will be the road condition from Silchar to Aizawl during August/September? What does it take 6 hours when distance is only 175 km?

August and to some extent September is also rainy season over there, so the roads which are already in a poor condition are even worse. However, in the few years that I have been visiting Mizoram, I have seen the road condition improve a lot in many areas.

The reason the journey generally takes so long is however mainly due to the constant meandering of the roads around the hill sides, which obviously adds considerable distance to cover. 6 hours is also pretty much the average journey time in Mizoram to get between any of the major towns and Aizawl. To get to another town by road, you just have to accept and prepare for the fact that it will take roughly 6 hours, whatever the mileage on the map. (And I agree, factor in a day or so to recover!)

However... the incredible views make it all worthwhile!
