Moreh is a town around 108 km from Imphal and is the only entry point to Myanmar from India. It is also India's Gateway to South-East Asia and the proposed Trans-Asia Highway and railway from India to China will pass through Moreh.
It takes about three hours by car from Imphal to reach Moreh. The drive gets very scenic and enjoyable barring the halts at numerous security checkpoints that fall on the way to Moreh.
A bustling commercial hub, Moreh trades in both Indian and Chinese goods, including perishable items such as betel-nut, onion, garlic, and rice. It has a cosmopolitan population that includes communities such as Kukitribe, Tamil, Nepali, Manipuri, Punjabi, Telugu, Bihari, and Marwari.
Apart from the local market, the Indo-Myanmar Friendship Gate and the Indo-Myanmar Friendship Bridge are of interests to tourists. The Indo-Myanmar Friendship Gate is about 1 km from central Moreh. On the other side of the border is Tamu town of Myanmar.
In order to crossover to Tamu, tourists, including Indian’s need Myanmar visa. Global Connection Siliguri can guide you on this. Equipped with a visa, you can travelby road up to Mandalay.
