Area & population
Chin State is inhabited by different Chin tribes, Nagas, Rakhines and Myanmarns in nine Townships and 505 Wards and Village-Tracts. It has a population of about 368,985.
Main agricultural crops are paddy, maize and millet although wheat, groundnut, chilli, cotton and sugar-cane are also grown. Apples, oranges, damsons and other garden fruits are produced in large quantities and grapes are being cultivated on an experimental basis. Cultivable acreage has increased as the State has built irrigation works, introduced terrace cultivation, distributed pedigree seeds and insecticides and provided tractor ploughing.
The 605 square miles of Forest Reserves in Chin State produce valuable scented woods, teak, pine and cane. Hilly though the State is, the hills are not rocky but made up of shale and earth. Some coal is found in west Kabaw valley. In livestock breeding, sericulture is the principal industry.
There is a beautiful heart shape lake called "Reh" close to the Indian border. Mt. Victoria can also be climbed. Tourists can also visit the Nat-Ma-Taung or the Mt. Victoria nature park in the Chin State.
