Highlights of Nagaland

At a Glance

DELHI – DIBRUGARH – MON – MOKOCHUNG – TOUPHEMA – KOHIMA – DELHI

Apart from the hills and valleys, the next best thing about Nagaland is the Tribes and their intriguing history and lifestyle. There is so much more to discover about them, their diehard spirit to retain the purity and authenticity of their culture, their rituals, festivals, food habits and above all surviving in today’s metamorphosis of civilisation, in harmony with the environment.

This tour takes you to the attractive tribal places like Tuensang, Mokochang and Touphema, apart from Kohima, which is the capital of this picturesque state that still supports the Tribes. It has very fruitfully culminated into one of the most striking tourist attractions of this state. Mon, where you spend three days, is the main attraction and also happens to be the home to the Konyaks. They are known for being masters in the woodcraft and believed to create masterpieces.

The tourists find their elaborate tattoos very fascinating! The chiefs adorn themselves with ornaments made from animal horn or boar teeth. It is a real pleasure and an experience complete with wonderment, to watch them welcome people into their world, which is warm, simple and hospitable. You would surely enjoy the guided walks, expeditions, hunting trips and visits to their local homes.

Their handicrafts are worth appreciating. With so many things to experience and admire it is quite natural to lose the sense of time! Kohima, though last on the circuit in the Naga tour offers a great mix of tribal and non-tribal culture. It has the famous Second World War cemetery; a good state museum that has articulately preserved the Naga artefacts.

It is a fair mix of all the flavours; you begin at the tea city Dibrugarh, wander and admire the tribes and end the experience at Kohima before flying out from Delhi!

Our  Tour features the following locations

DELHI: The largest mosque, the biggest temple, honky auto-rickshaws; it’s easy to distinguish Delhi. The city has been at the centre of the Indian civilisation for centuries and a major seat of power ever since the Mughals built their capital here. Modern Delhi presents a mix of colonial-era architecture, Mughal forts, and mausoleums, ancient bazaars, glitzy malls and world class restaurants. It often feels overwhelming, but given a chance, it always grows onto you. Be sure to visit Humayun’s Tomb, a 16th-century Mughal wonder inspired by the iconic Taj Mahal and Lodi Gardens, the best spot for sunsets in Delhi. There’s also the Hauz Khas Village, a throbbing hub that gained popularity with its Open Nights when those narrow alleys are transformed into cultural wonders, adorned with lights and decorated with streamers. There really is no better place to discover Delhi’s rich culture and mingle with its locals.

DIBRUGARH: The largest tea exporting town in India, located on the banks of the River Brahmaputra, it is the gateway to the three tea producing districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, and Jorhat. A convenient base for access to Dibru Saikhowa NP, home to feral horses, Asiatic Wild Buffalo, White winged wood duck, Tiger, Elephant, Leopard, Jungle Cat, Bears, Small Indian Civet, Squirrels, Gangetic Dolphin and more. Dibrugarh is also the gateway to the adjoining tribal state of Arunachal Pradesh.

MON: The District of Mon, covers an area of 1786 Sq.km. It is bounded on the North by Sibsagar District of Assam, on the South by Tuensang District of Nagaland and Myanmar (Burma), on the East by Myanmar (Burma) and the West by Tuensang and Mokokchung District.

MOKOCHUNG: This hill station of Nagaland is the oldest town in the state and has a distinctly colonial feel to it. A drive to this hill station through the winding road with forest stretches is a thrilling experience. One can experience the Maotsu Festival of the Ao tribe with a sip of rice beer and singing and dancing.

TOUPHEMA: Located 41 km from Nagaland’s capital Kohima, Touphema is a small pictorial village which offers you an exceptional view of traditional Naga lifestyle in the lap of nature. The motto is to preserve the Naga traditional lifestyle, and that is why this village is recognised as tourist village by the local government. It offers essential comforts in an ethnic setting; the interiors also invite you into the chapters of history, traditions and ancient myths of the Naga culture. 

KOHIMA: Kohima has its own unique flavour as a hill resort. A pretty town endearingly unspoilt, tranquil and immersed in history. Go for a tour around the Garrison Hill area, to revisit the Battle of Kohima and the 2nd World War Cemetery listing the brave Nagas who laid down their lives during the famous battle of the ‘Tennis Court’ took place. A bronze plate with a suitable epitaph supports each grave.

What our Clients Stay

Richard and I are home safe and sound after our trip to Nagaland, and I have to give you an A+++ for all your trip arrangements! Everything worked out so beautifully, even though I know some of our locations and logistics were not easy to arrange. Your contact people in India could not have been better……all of them….guides, drivers and meet and greet people. Your hotel choices, too, were wonderful, with the exception, of course, Mon……but even that was probably the best available, and it was not their fault that the town’s electricity was out, also meaning no water. Anyway, I couldn’t be more pleased with your services and with your associates in India. I’m sure Richard feels the same. I certainly will recommend Mystic India to any friends looking to make an independent trip to India. Thanks for everything, Sharon. It was just a really great trip and memory! You are an excellent travel agent. All the best,
