Hnahlan is a village located in the Champhai district of Mizoram, 247 kilometres away from the state capital, Aizawl. It is located on the international Myanmar-India border, being a mere 5 kilometres away from Myanmar.
The village’s origin can be traced back to the year 1897, when the region was at first occupied by Sailo chief, Kaihranga, and his successors. This is only till the year 1954, when the order for the abolishment of chieftainship was put into action and the chief was forced to abdicate his position. The village now functions under a Democratic Village Council.
Apart from its great history, Hnahlan is also popular for its wine production, having the name Zawlaidi or Love Potion. About 80% of the village’s population is engaged in wine cultivation. Barring a few set backs, the winery has had consistent performance throughout the years.
Hnahlan is well connected to Aizawl by buses and sumo services.
