After the airfield, I made a quick stop at Tuirial bridge. The bridge appeared several years ago in what used to be very popular (May still be, but who likes to hang printed calendar on the wall any more?) Mizoram Calendar issued by the State Dept. Of Information & Public Relations. It also appeared in a handful of Mizo music videos ( and films), one was that of a Mizo band called Tornado. The river bed by the bridge used to be a popular picnic spot, not sure now.
Just before Seling the road forked into two. I took the left into Tipaimukh road. Tipaimukh road was just something in school text. I was going to ride it then. From there on, it was all new to me.
Good road so far. They must be very well engineered I thought. You could just lean left and right with confidence, even as a novice rider like me.
I crossed the second bridge for the day- Tuirini. Another quick stop for photography and because it’s a bridge I had to stop and admire it.
Next I rode pass Khawruhlian, another very familiar name because my grandmother was from here.
