Welcome to Nagaland
The uncontested ‘wild east’ of India, Nagaland is probably one of the reasons you came to the Northeast in the first place. Rich in primeval beauty, Nagaland’s dazzling hills and valleys – right on the edge of the India–Myanmar border – are an other-worldly place where, until very recently, some 16-odd headhunting Naga tribes valiantly fought off intruders. Of course, Nagaland today is a shadow of its once fierce self, and much of the south of the state is fairly developed. In the north, however, you still stand a good chance of meeting tribespeople in exotic attire who continue to live a traditional lifestyle. Note that a number of insurgent groups are active in the state and you should check the political situation before you travel.
