Mindat is a small town in the Chin State, impressively perched on a hillside at an altitude of about 1,500 metres, offering scenic and varied adventures to visit the Chin ethnic minorities. It's overlooked by Mount Victoria some 48 kilometres away across a deep valley to the southwest.

Chin elder, MindatMindat itself is a simple but charming town with limited accommodation options. Next to the central market is a tea shop that serves snacks and hot drinks and is a great place to sit and watch the Chin go about their daily lives. The town and surrounding villages are 65% christian, with the remainder made up of Buddhist and animist worship — along the roads and tracks you will see catholic and baptist churches, and the occasional Buddhist temple.
