Nagaland Classic Cultural Tour
The mysterious stretch of land between Tibet and Burma, known in India as the “Seven Sisters”, is the wild north-east of India and was “terra incognita” until 1995. The region was isolated for a long time due to a lack of infrastructure, but also for political and strategic reasons, making it a black spot on the tourist map. Only recently has it become possible to visit these interesting areas of north-eastern India, albeit only in small “hand-picked” groups. The area is an ethnic patchwork: a total of over 500 tribes with different traditions, languages, cultures and a way of life at different levels of civilization settle here, all with a different ethnic origin than the rest of India.
Dive with us into this fascinating world of legends, myths and nature spirits.
You will need a pioneering spirit and empathy for our Nagaland tour, even if you are traveling in comfortable cars. In the capital Kohima, you will spend the night in a pretty, privately run lodge, otherwise mostly in very easy and rudimentary hotels and lodges. Those who are not put off by the lack of comfort will be rewarded with unforgettable encounters in an extraordinarily original and diverse tribal world. You will encounter several Naga tribes living in seclusion; Mon and Mokokchung in Nagaland are areas of India that are rarely visited. The Konyak tribe is one of the most traditional tribes in Nagaland. Although headhunting is a thing of the past, the Konyaks still preserve their cultural heritage with their traditional way of life. If you visit Nagaland in the first week of December, round off your tour with a visit to the famous Hornbill festival. Here, the diversity of Nagaland’s various tribes is celebrated with dancing, singing, drumming and traditional food.
