Khonoma Village

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 the Indian resistance to Britain by bravely defending their territory against advancing British troops between the 1830s and the 1880s, when a peace was finally brokered.

The village is known for its lush surrounding forests, and for having some of the oldest terraced paddy fields in the region. The 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 an unquestioned 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.
