“The caravan tours from India entering via the gate in the beautiful Chin state can visit the heart-shaped Rih Lake”After crossing the Zokhawthar border to enter Myanmar via Rinkhawdar border, there is a chance to see Rih Lake (or Rih Dil), a natural lake located in northwestern Chin State (in Myanmar/Burma). The lake is about one mile in length and half a mile in width. It is about 3 miles in its circumference and the depth is about 60 feet. It has a heart-shaped outline. The name is derived from a Mizo folktale of Rih-i. Rih-i had a younger sister who was murdered by her father upon the order of their stepmother. Rih-i's sister was resurrected with the help of a spirit. With the same magical spell Rih-i turned herself into a water body that became the lake.
