The Mizoram government has plans to set up the state’s first eco-tourism park at Sairilzo village under the Mamit forest division, 38km from Aizawl. A government team led by the state’s tourism minister, John Rotluangliana, and director of tourism, Vabiha Hlychho, selected the ecologically wealthy Sairilzo during a recent visit to the area.

Official sources in Aizawl today said the cost of the proposed eco-tourism park was being prepared by an inter-departmental cell and later the tourism department would implement the plan within two or three years. The adventure and eco-tourism are being given much stress by the state government for attracting the tourists in the state, for whom as many as 19 tourist lodges have already been set up.

A proposal has been mooted by the forest and environment authorities to start rearing such rare birds such as Hume’s pheasant, white -cheeked partridge, great pied hornbill, large Indian parakeet and khaleej pheasant for the eco park. Rare orchid species as cymbidium, dendrobium and vanda would also be cultivated inside the proposed eco park for attracting the tourists, official sources said.
