Experience Naga culture first-hand - Mokokchung

Vibrant green hued mountains and warm hospitality from the tribes! Yes, it’s Mokokchung. At an altitude of around 4,430 feet above sea level, this town is a favourite of backpackers. And not to forget: the local Naga food, a variety of pork, chicken and fish dishes served with rice, is a must try.

Nivathi stayed at Hotel Metsuben, Mokokchung: Location is good and the services were very good. The hotel attendants were friendly and very helpful.

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 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.

Nature widens its arm to taste the tender touch Kohima to Mokokchung, natural experience with cordial Nagamis & they are awesome.
