Kungawrhi Puk is one of the most significant and largest caves in Mizoram. This cave is located on the hills between Farkawn and Vaphai villages in the Champhai district.

Legend has it that a long time ago, the spirits had abducted and used this cave as a confinement of a beautiful girl by the name of Kungawrhi. Kungawrhi was engaged to a brave young man called Pnathira. The incident took place on a day when Pnathira and Kungawrhi were on their way from Pnathira's village. The spirits were fascinated by Kungawrhi's magnificent beauty and they kidnapped her, hiding her away in these caves. The victimised girl stayed in the cave until the valiant Pnathira returned for his love and fought bravely against the spirits and freed his beloved from their trap. The caves were then named after this girl.

One could reach Kungawrhi Puk by hiring a tourist vehicle from Champhai town.
