Khonoma is one of the oldest villages in Nagaland, and like the rest of them, is a beautiful quaint little place which is perfect for a getaway from the maddening crowd. The homestays are warm, friendly, surrounded by beautiful plants and hills. Nagaland is a must visit destination

The ride was long and backbreaking . Completely dilapidated road and exorbitant car fare. It was frankly not worth. Although we had a great guide and he really nicely explained the various aspects of their culture and practices. That was the interesting part. As per village noting special really .

One of the most memorable and eye opening experiences in my life was the Khonoma trek to dzuko valley. You'll get to live your life as raw as it gets. The clear night sky view (attached pic taken from my phone) and the other visual treats adds as a great kicker to the whole package. Once you live as a Naga, you'll start to think and enjoy life in a different style.

I am very grateful to Cristo (+918414982409) , a seasoned mountaineer and a young Naga (an epic person) who helped us to enjoy the stay and experience Nagaland as a true local.

This village is approximately 20 KM away from Kohima. It is one of the green village and has its own history. One walk around the village to understand the village and the community. Forts, archaeological places and also paddy fields worth seeing. Home stays and guided tours are available.

Khonoma is said to be the 1st green village of Asia. A village of Angami naga tribes. Angami's used to be a warrior tribes, was into hunting. But they have learned to preserve nature.
This village is 20km away from Kohima, the capital of Nagaland. Roads are so,so. Can be said better than the usual road conditions of Nagaland . They have a village tourist center, from where one can take a guide to show you around.
Birding is also another attraction here and one may find many rare species of birds here. There are 3 small castles here ,representing the British war time.one Morang is situated at the center of the village. Taxis are available for day trip.There are home stays to stay overnight. People are very friendly and helps tourists around.

An Angami village located about 20 kms from the capital, Kohima. Be warned that the roads are in bad condition and the trip may take more time than usual. A real tiem village with about 2000 inhabitants going about their daily village lives. Get to explore and witness this in person with the help of a guide who can take you around and describe in detail about he village, history and the lifestyle.

Although only about 15km west of Kohima, getting to this village takes time because the road is poor. However, it's well worth the effort, provided you hire a guide when you get there. If you don't, you won't appreciate very much simply by wandering around. The village sits on a hill with its terraced fields for rice and other crops below, and beyond, steep wooded hillsides with small patches cleared by rotation to provide wood. However our guide gave us far more than the scenery, showing us several morungs, house interiors, the water supply, the three British forts, burial places, areas set aside fo games and the small but interesting museum. He also explained the social structure and way in which the village was run. I think we got a much longer tour than normal because of the interest we were showing, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. As a bonus, we also saw a hornbill circling overhead.

Had a very nice stay in this quiet village. Some very lovely homestays here who will guide you, make you feel at home, serve authentic Naga food. I stayed at Hills View Cottage (Uncle Kose is a very nice host). Highly recommended if you are staying in Khonoma

Khonoma village is a pretty, peaceful and green village. People are relaxed and friendly and the village is worth a visit, to roam around and it's great to spend a night here.

A taxi from Kohima should cost Rs 500 but Rs600 is also acceptable. The entrance fee for the village (payable to your host) is Rs 50 per head. There are guides available to show you around for a fee.

We had a lovely stay at Mr Kose and family Homestay Hills View Cottage. Their house is , overlooking the hills and terraces and their two guestrooms can accommodate 5 people.

We had lots of nice tea, a tasty local dinner with only homegrown vegetables and even the rice comes from their own paddy field.

The room is comfy with plenty blankets and the bathroom is attached / next door where the family brought a bucket of hot water in the morning for a nice warm bucket shower.

Contact Mr Kose via +91 81198 90171 (phone and WhatsApp) to make sure they have availability.

When arriving in the village immediately turn right onto Lower Circular Road (there is a sign). Continue driving around the village untill at almost the other side of the village you see the green/yellow two story cottage on your right.
