Unspoiled landscapes

The mountains of Nagaland

Mountains and trekking

Impressively beautiful waterfalls

Trekking in Nagaland offers breathtaking views of mountain and river landscapes, lakes and enriching encounters with the mountain people. Everywhere one comes across caves, which are rarely explored, towering monoliths and sacred places. Interesting rock formations, sparkling springs, a kaleidoscope of exotic flowers such as orchids and multi-colored rhododendrons characterize the landscape. To date, only a few guests have discovered the beauty of Nagaland on foot. Trekking and summit ascents (2,500 to 3,841 m above sea level) have a pioneering character and are suitable for all those who are looking for a travel experience away from the usual tourist routes. You can also take a tour through the botanically diverse “Valley of Flowers” or climb the 2,600-metre-high Glory Peak in the Mon district, which offers majestic views of Mount Everest and Mount Sarmati. An unforgettable experience awaits you in Nagaland’s mountain world in an area that has hardly been touched by tourism. The pleasant climate also offers ideal conditions for bike enthusiasts.
