CHAPCHAR KUT is one of the biggest festival we celebrate in Mizo Tradition. This festival is held at the time of the beginning of spring. This is the time of the year when they finish the jhum cutting, the most ardous part of the jhum operation. The respite between the jungle clearing operation and the burning of jhum becomes all the more enjoyable in the springtime. The cold spell of the winter yields to the spring and the trees put out fresh leaves and flowers blossom. Chapchar Kut is perhaps the liveliest of Mizo festivals observed as it is with great funfare and merriment.
