Rih Dïl, also known as Rih Li is a beautiful heart-shaped lake that is located 22 km inside Myanmar. The lake is approximately one mile in length and half a mile in width. This lake is believed to be the passage to heaven for the souls of the dead. A strange feature of the lake is that its South West floor happens to be deeper than the north-west and that it gets deep abruptly immediately after the edge of the water.
There are several folktales which surround this amazing and picturesque lake. Ril Dïl is a rarely visited place even today because of the difficulty to access this region. Yet, public bus facility has been provided from the Indo-Myanmar gate which will take you to the Rih. One can also get permission to visit the lake from the Deputy Commissioner's office at Champhai.
