Naga Heritage Village during the Hornbill Festival can give you a complete Naga experience within a few days. If you are short of time, December 1 to 10 every year is the best time to visit.

Date of experience: December 2018

It's a showcasing of all the tribal and indigenous customs and traditions of Nagaland state at one place called Kisama heritage village. Huts or morungs built as per the tribes living in the districts of the state. Every hut or morung is different from each other with different customs and practices and designs. Tourists should visit in the first week of December where the festival takes place here. There is a World War 2 museum, children's park, botanical garden. Other days it's just the huts and morungs and some restaurants operate during day time.

Amalgamation of 16 major Naga tribes belonging to the infrequently visited state of Nagaland in northeast India can be seen in the Hornbill festival in this Naga Heritage Village. One can pay a visit the village and enjoy it even withour the festival ongoing. It wasn’t so long ago when these tribes were still warring among each other and severing the heads of their enemies to bring home as trophies in a practice known as headhunting. Every year in the first week of December, at the annual Hornbill festival, representatives from all the Naga tribes perform traditional dances, prepare & sell traditional cuisine and generally showcase their culture to festival attendees in this cultural venue. We were bestowed with the great privilege of being able to attend the Hornbill festival 2017 from Dec 1st to Dec 10th and the events are still fresh in our memories.

It is a place which is supposed to be visited during 01 Dec to 10 Dec every year when hornbill festival is organized here. People of all tribes come here & display their traditions such as traditional home, dance, dress, traditional food drinks etc. It is located bang on the highway from where about 500 meters ahead car parking is there. Tickets to be purchased...different for indian national & foreign nationals. Other than festival days very minimal price. I had visited last week of Dec hence nothing was there to see except traditional homes. It was waste of time then but during hornbill festival it will a delight to be here. All amenities available such as rooms, toilets, restaurants inside this village premises spreading about 50 acres...but functional only during hornbill festival. Not a must in Kohima if not during hornbill festival.
