Kohima

The state capital of Nagaland, Kohima is situated at an altitude of 1,444 metres and is a beautiful town with wide panoramic views of the surrounding region. Built by the British close to the original Angami tribal village, Kohima is located in central Nagaland in the heart of what is a little-visited and remote region. The gateway to the rest of the state, Kohima is the perfect place from which to visit local Naga villages and is also close to where the famous Hornbill Festival is held annually each December when the sixteen tribes of Naga descend on the town’s environs in a riot of colourful celebration. Visit the Kohima War Cemetery and Cathedral Church of Kohima, the fascinating 700 year old Naga village of Khonoma and the State Museum which houses a rare collection of artefacts from each Naga tribe. With our knowledge and experience we can help to create a unique holiday to India that is tailored exactly to your requirements.
