Nagaland – Switzerland of the East

A land engulfed in mystery, inhabited by vibrant people zealously guarding their culture – dancers, warriors, head-hunters; mountains, valleys, forests – all these form the portrait of Nagaland the moment the word is uttered. But, from extreme mystery to hosting a globally famous cultural festival, Nagaland has come a long way over the years and etched a name for itself in the world’s tourist destination map.

Nagaland shares her borders with Assam in the North and West, Myanmar and Arunachal Pradesh in the East and Manipur in the South. The topography of the state is nearly all hilly, the highest peak being Saramati (3841m) in the district of Kiphire. Many rivers cut through this mountainous terrain, like sharp swords slicing through rocks, the main ones being Dhansiri, Doyang, Dikhu, Milak, Tizu and Zungki.

Colourful costumes, spicy cuisines, pleasant weather, traditional villages, beautiful dance forms and lyrical songs are all that define the north-eastern state of Nagaland.

Encompassing hills, mountains, plains and plateau, the region has many cultural groups and communities with varied cultural background and biodiversity hotspot where it lies which can easily attract tourists from the world over.

Life in rural areas is extremely engaging, more colourful and unusual compared to what travellers are used to seeing. The scenery is equally engrossing.

Summer sets in the month of March and continues through end April / start of May. Temperatures vary depending upon the altitude of the area and the district. Unlike the rest of the country, summers are humid but moderately hot. Monsoon is quite prolonged in Nagaland lasting from May to September. The state experiences medium to heavy showers during these months. Winter in Nagaland is extremely pleasant and beautiful. Humidity is at its lowest; temperatures are low and are great for moving around and exploring the different areas. As you go higher up temperatures continue to fall and can dip as low as 4°C.
