Runway in the hills, Lengpui Airport
Lengpui Airport is the only airport we have in Mizoram. It’ about two hours(?) drive from the state capital Aizawl. We do have another aerodrome – Tuirial Airfield decommissioned since the opening of Lengpui Airport.
According to Wikipedia, it is one among the three airports in India with a table top runway. I was seven standard when the construction started. They chopped hills and filled the valleys with soil – in layman speak.

I could be wrong with the facts and figures. I will be happy to stand corrected. Please do cite the source if any. Yes I like aircrafts and airports -especially those high in the hills.
