Nagaland is largely unknown, even to most Indians, yet we hear so much about those flower-filled hills and enchanting ravines. Stories of travelers crossing the slippery mountain borders to meet Eastern Naga who still prefer to wear their sea-shelled costumes and live in remote hilltop villages are often narrated in hushed tones. Experiences of a place that hasn’t changed much over hundreds of years manage to raise an eyebrow or two.
Think of Nagaland as a place that has been completely cut off from the rest of the world, from modern development itself. The Naga culture thrives on its connection to nature and the old-world way of life, and therein lies its true beauty.
