Great place to travel

Though was a small place, but still a lot of sight seeing in such a small place. I went there in the month of January, and it was freezing like anything. But I actually liked the weather. At least one time visit is suggested. If you are in Nagaland, this place is a must visit.

Mokokchung, very good one

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 irritated me off. Apart from dt the views is realyy 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#u had to go up#so kms was double-. -The construction of the road was really bad. And the nagaland govt. Should took steps on. This matter. We crossed many small. Waterfalls on our way and there was not a. Good hotel to eat something. Only at. Mokokchung there was good restrau. My experience was very good there was lot of site scene on mokokchung#if you budget is 3000-3500 dn take your bike and ride on#a really adventure ride for you guys.
