I visited Nagaland, northeastern state of India this March.  I visited Dimapur,  Peren and Mokokchung district.  I have tried to summarize my overall experience in simple notes.

Thanks 2 Achet for inviting me to this trip, am missing all the fun already. 🙂

  • Pork is a staple food & its common to keep pigs at home along with hens.
  • Although Indian government has only recognized 17 naga tribes  number is much more.
  • Christianity is dominant in the state & people are god fearing.
  • English is commonly spoken & medium of education.
  • Education has special importance & students walk few kilometers daily for schooling.
  • People are  humble & happy & well educated.
  •  The state has natural resources in abundance but pollution is a major threat.
  • Bamboos play major role in building houses & handicraft industry is largely dependent on it.
  • One can easily enter Nagaland via Dimapur but to visit most other districts one needs inner line permit.
  • If you like reading local folktales then do visit Signet Books, Dimpaur. They have good collection.
  • Don`t forget to being some green tea from local Nagaland brand named Amonar, its awesome.
