The major profession of the Mizos is agriculture. Paddy, Maize, Mustard, Sugarcene and potatoes are the main crops of the area.
After the retreat of the British, Mizoram has become highly inaccessible as the traditional routes viz. Chittagong and Rangamati no longer exist. The air links to Aizawl are also uncertain throughout the rainy season which lasts from April to October. The tediously long road journey from Shillong or Silchar is also not recommended. The once dense forests of Mizoram have been replaced by Slash and burn Jhum cultivation.
