NAGALAND

Kohima, the capital of the state of Nagaland, is perched at 1444.12 meters above sea level. Kohima enjoys a temperate climate throughout the year.It is a hill station in its own right and has its incomparable charms that other hill stations do not offer.

Kohima is the cosmopolitian headquarters of 15 major tribes. The distinctive character and identity of each tribe in terms of traditions, custom, language and dress is clearly discernible to a visitor. Many are visibly amazed by this contrast.

BEST TIME TO VlSlT

The winter months, i.e. October to April is generally recommended as the best time to visit Nagaland. The weather during this period is quite pleasant and one can move around in comfort. The summer months, from May to September is best left out due to the onset of monsoon.
