RIH DIL is a lake located in Myanmar, just about 3 kilometers from the Indian border and is associated with Mizo folklore, where the departed souls are believed to have made their passage before they go to their eternal abodes.

The lake is about one mile in length and half a mile in width. It is about 3 miles in diameter and the depth is about 60 feet. Rih Lake is well known for its shape which is heart. The romantic heart-shaped lake .

The Mizos in the past believed that the ‘other world’ was divided into two, and that all spirits went to a place called ‘Mitthi khua’ (village of the deaths), then some moved on to ‘Pialral’ (heaven); but to reach their eternal abodes, they had to pass through the lake Rih Dil.

Rihdil

Rihdil

According to the legend, after crossing the Rih lake, the spirits/ souls reach a hill called ‘Hringlang tlang’, where they look back at their village and weep for days longing for the world they had left behind. In this mythical hill, there is  spring water called ‘Lungloh tui’, which they drink to quench their thirst and this made them forget all about their past life. The hill is also said to be full of flowers called ‘Hawilo par’, which they pluck and wear in their ears and hair and this made them forget their desire to return to their loved ones and they proceed to ‘Pawla kawt’ and then on to the dead men’s village called ‘Mitthi Khua’.

The dead men’s village ‘Mitthi khua’ is where the common people settled, living just like they did in their past lives. But beyond that village exist a place called ‘Pialral’ or heaven, where only the men and families who earned the title called ‘Thangchuah’ through their piousness and having sacrificed animals and given the community feast could enter the heaven much to the envy of the people who had to settle in Mitthi khua where there is only hardship.
