Location of Chandel district in Manipur

The Chandel District, which was also known as Tengnoupal District in British era is the border district of Manipur. It borders with Myanmar on the southern side and Churachandpur district on the south-west. Chandel district lies on NH 39 and the capital Imphal is just 65 km away from here.

Demographics

Similar to Churachandpur, Chandel is also very diverse and cosmopolitan in makeup. It's mostly a tribal area and around two dozen tribes reside here. Some of the prominent tribes are known as Anal, Paite, Maring, Lamkang, Chothe, Thadou,Kuki, Moyon, Monsang, and Zou etc. A small percentage of Meiteis and Muslims also inhabit the area. This small district of Manipur has a population of around 1.5 lakhs and it is home to a large number of non-Manipuris, such as Punjabis, Tamils, Biharis and Nepalis, too.

The Moreh Town

The Moreh town in the south Chandel district has emerged as the hub of international trade in Manipur. As soon as NAFTA and EU like cross border links are created in this part of Asia, Chandel will become a gateway to Myanmar, China, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Moreh is a border town on India Myanmar highway and its location has given the town an advantage to evolve as a center of commerce. It is linked to the Myanmar town Tamu to facilitate trade between both the countries.

Small scale industries

It is a large hilly district with a total area of more than 3000 sq. km, where population density is very low. Though Chandel is not so developed district according to national standards, its people have contributed to army and national security in a disproportionate way. It is second least populous district of Manipur.

With the inception of the District Industries Centre, Chandel in the 80s, village & small industries, particularly tiny & cottage industries have seen a significant growth. Now there is less and less central control on this sector and cottage industries are flourishing in the district.

Access

The best way to reach Chandel is to reach Imphal Airport from Guwahati, Delhi, or Kolkata. Indian Airlines runs regular daily flights from Imphal to Delhi via Guwahati. The nearest railway station from Chandel is Dimapur (distance about 215 km from Imphal,) from where a bus or cab can be taken to reach Chandel. The other way round is to take NH39 from Imphal, where regular bus service is available to Chandel.

Tourist places

Tengnoupal is among the tourists' spots, which is situated 20km. away from Chandel. This is the summit on India Myanmar Road and a nice view of Manipur valley can be had from here. Sometimes, while cruising along this road, you will find yourself above the clouds across the hills, whereas the landscape would be the same lush green. Bustling with business activities, border town Moreh is also a must see place.
