Kohima Experience: Nagaland if filled with picturesque landscapes. However, it offers very little options to stay. Vegetarians will find it very difficult to survive here given the immense love of Nagas for read meat. Plan your stay well ahead in advance.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Lots of shoppoing options are available in Kohima. Also the supply from Burma and Chinese markets offers some great stuff at decent rates. All you need to know is to bargain hard.
Activities & things to do: The key attraction is the Hornbill festival. That's all we did when we were in Kohima.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: AIR : DIMAPUR is the only Airport in Nagaland at the moment. Direct flights connect the airport to Guwahati and Kolkota.

Yellow taxis can be hired with other passengers (shared taxi) or exclusive (full taxi). One way fare from Dimapur Station to Kohima will be about 175/- per person for a shared cab.
