The northeastern block of India comprises of seven states, popularly known as seven
sisters. Manipur is one of the states, which has been covered with fame and is known
in every corner of the globe for its pure and rich cultural heritage also for Sports.
Out of the state's eight districts, Tamenglong is located along the western boundary
of the state.
Tamenglong is entirely composed of hills, ranges and narrow valleys. The hilltops
and valley sides are dotted with small hamlets, located at strategic points.
The land was believed to have been formed due to orogenic movement during cretaceous
and Eocene period. The main rock formations are sandstone, shale, schist. Due to
weak and fragile nature of rocks and high gradient of the hill slopes, landslide
is a common phenomenon in the whole district in rainy season.
Tamenglong HQ can be reached through Roadways. From Imphal (State Capital) three
buses depart at 6.00 am weekdays (except Sunday) to reach Tamenglong the same afternoon.
