Experience


Nagaland is one of the most beautiful states in the North-East India. Connected with well laid out roads, rail and air Nagaland has lately seen a bit of increase in tourism in the recent years. This is also due to the hugely popular 10-day long Hornbill Festival that is held every year in December. The festival is a colourful feast celebrating the local culture, music, dance and food of the various tribes in the state. Widely anticipated, the festival is attended by people from across the country who travel to be there and soak in the Naga hospitality and culture. However, there are lot of places to visit and things to do apart from attending the Hornbill festival.
