Jampui Hill is situated 250 km from Agartala. The entrancing verdure of the Jampui Hills (the premiere hill range of the six in Tripura) is enhanced by its bracing climate, giving visitors reason enough to call them ‘the seat of permanent spring’. Clamber up those gentle heights to enjoy panoramas tinged by spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Jampui is home to some very exotic species of orchids, ornamental trees and fragrant orange groves. The abundance of oranges has, in fact, given wing to the Orange Festival held in November when the surrounding hills are heavy with the fruit and a riot of colour. The cobweb of picturesque trekking trails, punctuated by friendly brooks and serene lakes along the Jampui Hills, are a treat for the outdoor enthusiast. Village tours are becoming increasingly popular, as the Lushai and Reang community here is welcoming and hospitable. It’s magical in the monsoon too. Especially when the gentle mist lifts intermittently to reveal pretty vignettes of the haunting views of neighbouring Mizoram in the distance Water sports facilities are available around Sabual village. From Betalongchip point you get great views of Aizawl, the Chittagong Hill Tracts and the Kanchanpur-Desda Valley on clear days.
