Attending this grand showcase will take you back to a time when the Naga folks used to live life in harmony with nature. A time when hunting and celebrating was the way of life. At the festival women wear colourful weaves and men sport spears adorned with animal fur to go with their loin cloth. Soak the energy and indulge in some lip smacking food.
Anyone who manages to spend a reasonable time travelling across Nagaland, from the land of the Konyaks in Eastern Nagaland right up to the land of the Angamis in the state capital of Kohima will find the Naga people extremely hospitable. That green hills and crispy clouds give you company when you aren’t surrounded by these warm people is a bonus. For those who like their red meat, Naga cuisine should be right up there in the list of cuisines to try. Varieties of smoked and fresh meat, infused with local herbs and generous portions of bamboo shoot.
Hornbill festival brings all these little things together in one place for everyone to witness and it is definitely an event one shouldn’t miss. The other draw of attending Hornbill festival is the trek to the carpet like Dzukou valley and a visit to the historical village of Khonoma. You have to have a really solid excuse to not attend this festival.
This package is for those who only want a stay option during Hornbill 2017 and would like to figure everything else on their own.
Cost per person per night Rs 1399/-
