They organize various competition like chilli eating, log puling, cart pulling and motor biking. It is a 10 day enjoyment along with visit to the neighbouring villages. There are many places to see around like the 2nd world war cemetery, the cathedral, the local bazaar and the night bazaar. I travelled all the way from Hyderabad (South India). I travelled from Hyderabad to Gauhati by flight and from Gauhati to Dimapur by train and from Dimapur to Kohima by Taxi. Kohima is a beautiful hill station with friendly people.
