I went to Mokokchung on June, 2015 on two wheels. The whole journey was super awesome but the road was the only thing that really pissed me off. Apart from that the views is really beautiful. We went from golaghat(district of Assam) to Mariani(jorhat district)-then from Mariani 81 kms to Mokokchung town. The km looked only 81 km but DS was not a straight road. You had to go up so kms was double, the construction of the road was relay bad, & Nagaland government should take steps on this matter. We crossed many small small waterfalls on our way and there was not good. Need hotels to eat something. Only at Mokokchung there was good restaurant my experience was very good there was lot of site scene on Mokokchung. If you budget is 3000-3500 than take your bike and ride on. A really adventure ride for you guys.
Local food are stunning. Locals are very amicable and cordial. Captivated to taste the bliss of mountains. Utterly a 'trekkers paradise. A very safe place owing to army camp. Nature widens its arm to taste the tender touch Kohima to Mokokchung, natural experience with cordial Nagamis & they are awesome. Mokokchung is the cleanest place among the cities in Nagaland as we experienced.
