A Trip to Remember For a Lifetime- Backpackers trip to Nagaland (Part – I)

Nagaland is one of the most scenic hill stations on the north-east. I had my 4 days backpacking trip in Nagaland with the Photographers of India and the team Chalohoppo in this June.

Nagaland- it is not only about historical sight, but it’s also more about their culture. My first experience of an offbeat Nagaland took place in Kohima, A city not looking similar to another city capital.

My trip was started with wonderful people at the war cemetery the memorial dedicated to the soldiers of the 2nd British division of the Allied forces who died in the second world war at Kohima.

Nagaland has always been known for its headhunting tribes- with a simple belief that the more head one would claim the better will be his reputation.

When exploring a bit of Nagaland- I considered not being on my own. With a group or sticking together can helps a lot. You just need to be aware of what is happening around you and not afraid of anything. With my trip, all went well.

What I am actually trying to say, Traveling is safer in Nagaland as any other part of the country. I have experienced local people who were totally friendly & totally understand what value tourism brings to the state.

When we crave for stillness, and with that visiting someplace that has been kept isolated from the real world and where we lost ourselves in amidst nature’s serenity.

During my trip, I ended with such a place named Dzükou valley. Valley is well known for its lily flowers blooms in monsoon. The landscape was mesmerising!

I can say it’s a hidden paradise of northeast India.

Will share more about the trip, how it started and the amazing stuff we got up to in Dzükou valley trek.

Stay tuned! 🙂
