The Land of the Nagas

Validity: From 29 November to 12 December 2016

Kohima Camp, Nagaland, introduced by 'The Ultimate Travelling Camp' crosses into the realm of the unknown, exploring the unexplored. Situated in the exotic state of Nagaland, hidden in the north-eastern part of India, the camp showcases the cultural treasures of the Land of the Nagas, known as the last head hunters.


The picturesque state of Nagaland is bound by Assam in the west; Myanmar in the east; Arunachal Pradesh in the north and Manipur in the south, forming a part of what are known as the Seven Sisters, the seven states of north-east India, full of rolling hills and verdant rain forests. The Naga people, comprising 16 proud tribes were once fearsome warriors and head hunters who have retained much of their traditional and cultural heritage. This is reflected in their elaborate costumes and ritualistic headdresses which incorporate tiger tusks, bear skins, hornbill feathers and other symbolic accoutrements.

Kohima Camp coincides with the ten-day Hornbill Festival, an annual melange of cultural displays from all 16 tribes of Nagaland, showcasing their rich heritage in this colourful pageant. Each day brings forth their 'vibrant' performances, crafts, sports like archery and wrestling, food fairs, games and religious ceremonies.

At Kohima Camp, Nagaland, relax in individually designed tents, with en-suite bathrooms, crisp linen and the services of your very own butler. Enjoy a drink of the local rice beer, savour delicious tribal recipes and participate in celebrations of the unique Hornbill Festival.

Kohima Camp is located in a region that is predominantly occupied by the Angami Tribe, one of the major tribes of the 16 tribes of Nagaland. Historically warriors, these tribes spent much of their time in warfare with the other tribes and villages. The inter-village feuds came to an end in 1879 with the annexation of their territory by the British and their primitive religion, Animism, was replaced by Christianity, as the majority of the Angamis changed their faith. Another interesting facet of this warrior clan is that they are also innovative cultivators, an example being the 20 different strains of rice developed by them to suit variations in temperature and landscape.

Khonoma is a 700-year-old village inhabited by the Angami tribe whose men are renowned for their bravery and martial acumen. The Angamis etched their names into the history of Indian resistance by bravely defending their territory against advancing British troops from the 1830s to 1880, when a peace was brokered.

The village is known for its forests and for having some of the oldest terraced paddy fields in the region. The lush forests are home to a wide variety of plants, trees, birds and animals including many rare and endangered species.

A close bond with nature is a part of the local way of life. Faced with widespread deforestation, the residents banned hunting and logging in their forests. Today, the cobbled streets of Khonoma stand as a reminder of a time when man and nature flourished in peaceful coexistence.
