I went to Jampui in april'15 and was astonished by the pure tribal lifestyle there. From Kanchanpur, Vanghmun on Jampui hills is about 25 kms. Sumos are the only mode of transport available,charges Rs 60 and only good place to stay is Eden tourist lodge. The road route from kanchanpur to vanghmun is sheer pleasure, travelling through jungles and tribal huts on the way. Nothing much to do there, just visit nearby villages and rest you can enjoy a day or two in solitude.
The local tribes there are the Reang and Lusai, very hospitable and if you want you can enjoy a drink or two with them. Early morning is very refreshing, cool, calm,and rays of sun hit jampui first. Be wary of the weather. If it seems cloudy, better be prepared to take shelter because it's the first place in india where i have seen such a powerful thunder and hail storm, twice in 12 hours, but its a treat to watch. Local market close by 5:30 in the evening and not many hotels or restaurants options. Food is available in eden toursit lodge. so better be prepared beforehand if you plan to stay overnight.
