Nagaland


Nagaland is known for its primeval beauty, tribal culture and dazzling hills and valleys. Kohima is the capital city and Dimapur is the largest city of Nagaland. It shares border with the state of Assam to the west, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam to the north, and Manipur to the south, and shares international border with Myanmar to the east.

Nagaland is home to the sixteen Naga tribes, each with distinct culture, tribal traditions and language. It is a land of folklore passed down the generations through word of mouth. Here, music is an integral part of life; folk songs eulogising ancestors, the brave deeds of warriors and traditional heroes; poetic love songs immortalising ancient tragic love stories; Gospel songs that touch your soul or the modern tunes rendered exquisitely to set your feet tapping.

The climate of Nagaland is generally pleasant throughout the year due to abundance of vegetation and the hilly terrain. Winters are cold in most parts of the states, with little snowfall in some regions due to high elevation. Summers are slightly hot and humid in the towns in the plains. The region receives plenty of rain during the monsoons, from the month of May to September.
