Nagaland is home to many tribes with unique cultures and traditions. Life here is one big festival, as every tribe celebrates with fervour their very own festivities. Forget about all your worries in the stunning nature and with the hospitable people of Nagaland.
Nagaland is a state in North East India, sharing a border with Myanmar in the east. It is particularly famous for its tribal culture, with 16 major tribes and numerous sub-tribes. Each of the many different tribes has their own customs, dress and language. Music and dance are vital parts of the culture in Nagaland, and displayed in many colourful festivals. Taking advantage of their tribal differences, many of the younger generation ventured successfully into fashion design, combining traditional and modern influences.
Nagaland’s nature with the picturesque hills, lush greenery, wild flowers and mountain streams is perfect to unwind and relax. Orchid lovers will find several hundred varieties growing on the hillsides. Life in Nagaland is laidback and slow, you’ll have time to savour every day and minute of your holidays. The countryside invites to trekking and rock climbing off the beaten path.
In Dimapur, reminiscences of the ancient Kachari kingdom can be found. Ruins telling of this old splendour can be found scattered around the town. In Kohima, the largest Cathedral in Asia dominates the landscape from the hilltop it is erected on. The Naga Heritage Complex, where the annual Hornbill Festival is held, about 12 km from Kohima, showcases the different cultures of the state.
