About Trip

With its rolling green hills, blooming flowers, warm locals, incredible culture and just sheer natural beauty around, Nagaland is the most fascinating state among the 7 sisters. Explore local villages, interact with the local tribe, trek to the Dzukou valley and be mesmerized by its endless sheets of greenery, camp under the stars with some bonfire and truly disconnect from your hectic city life. It cannot get better than that, we promise you! If that’s not all, we also explore Kezhakeno village for its incredible tribal history and Khonoma village for a taste of history. Need we say more?
