The Blue Mountain of Mizoram or Phawngpui is held in high esteem in the state as it is believed to be the abode of the Gods. The highest mountain peak in the state of Mizoram, with a height of 2157 meters, the peak stands near the Myanmar border in Chhimtuipui District. Well-known for orchids and rhododendrons, Phawngpui peak provides a stunning view of the trees and colourful flowers growing in the vicinity.

Giving the most enthralling view of Mizoram, the mountain contains a semi-circular beautiful cliff in its western side known as Thlazuang Khàm, which possesses a pointed and a deep fall. On the peak, there exists a level ground of about 2 square kilometres which is bordered by tangled bamboo groves and other appealing vegetations.

Further, the Farpak area in Phawngpui is known for thronging with lush green flora and fauna. Sighting birds like Peregrine Falcon, Sunbirds, Blyth’s Tragopan, Golden Throated Barbet, Mrs Hume's Pheasants, Hornbill, amongst others is a common activity here. Clouded Leopard is also seen in the area very often. Since off late instances of wild orchids been stolen from Phawngpui are on a rise, efforts are now been taken to protect and conserve the area.
