In the settlements of Nagaland, every tribe builds a faultless imitation of the hut their ancestors used to live in, even if their own may have changed over the years. These huts, known as morungs, portray the lifestyle of the tribesmen.

At the Naga Heritage Village, you can take a conducted tour to see each one of these and interrelate with tribals. They will offer you freshly-brewed rice beer served in bamboo glasses.

Every day is a food fest in Nagaland — on your plate can be snails, frogs, dog meat or bamboo fungus. Almost everything that crawls or moves can be found in a Naga kitchen, slowly roasting on a fire.
On a chilly winter evening, a extravagant dish of smoked meat pickle, slow baked pork and curry with bamboo shoots, and rice is calming, to say the least.


Hike to Japfu Peak

If you haven’t fixed your dates yet, then design your trip to Nagaland in the first week of December. This is when the world-famous Hornbill Festival takes place at the Naga Heritage Village. The foggy valley comes thriving and the rich Naga culture is on full display during these 10 days.
You get to see the best of native crafts, local sports such as archery and wrestling, and traditional performances. Stop and listen to the commanding rhythms of warrior log drums in appropriated Nagaland.
