Kohima, Nagaland travel this November 2012Hello, my good mate and I are backpacking in Nagaland and Assam, we arrive Kohima this November 13th and am interested in finding an affordable homestay or couch surfing in town for us. Ideas?
There seems to be so little info about Nagaland. Good friends, can you tell me?
Is a trek to Dzukou Valley great? Are there places to stay there?
How long does it take to get to Fakim National Park from Kohima and is it good?
Any traditional villages close to Kohima? I mean places where tourists don't go so much.
Any special off the beaten path things you can tell me about Kohima? What do the locals do?
I like to have a drink or three. I know alcohol is banned in Nagaland, can I find rice beer/wine?
The trip to Mon sounds okay, but a long way to go. What do you think?
I will be heading to Jorhat after Nagaland? Any other special things that direction but still in Nagaland?
What do you think of Ntangki National Park?
Any guides to recommend for trips to Dzukou?
I have heard the food is great in Kohima, any suggestions?

3Trekking Dzukou Valley in November might be a bit problem. it will be very cold. Bara Bosti is a great place to visit if you want to experience the traditional village life. There are many villages near by. On a general, most parts of Nagaland is still unexplored by foreign travelers.
Why not visit during last week of November or the first week of December, Hornbill Festival take place during the first week of December and its worth attending.
Though Alcohol is banned but you will get it almost anywhere. Try the local rice beer. Its really something and the local rice beer is not illegal, so you need not worry about the law. It will cost you around 20 rupees for a mug. I would suggest not to drink more than 2 mugs for first timer.
Hope this helps

"Trekking Dzukou Valley in November might be a bit problem. it will be very cold."
Does that mean very cold compared to the rest of India. Or very cold in a way it could deter somebody used to European winters. Sub-zero all day ? Is it a try coldness or a humid coldness ?
thank you in advance, gf

11Its should not be so cold as the European winters. I am a Naga from nagaland and I presume you can bear the cold and yes, its dry cold. Good luck.
