Its simply beautiful ... A lake right in the centre of the city makes it even more inter sting

One must carry warm clothes, rather layer yourself ... Just spend the day lazying around the lake boating, shopping aor eating. The zoo is a another place worth visiting.

Nagaland-Best journey

I have gone to visit Nagaland for a weekend. It was too adventureous and the moutains were dangerous. But we all enjoyed it too much. We have visited Dimapur, Farukting, Kohima, Moon and some other districts. We travelled for 7 hours to stay our hotel. The hotel was very beautiful and service was also good. But food was disappointing because veg food was not available there. But the journey was surprising at all.

Perfect for a hard core hiker up the remote mountain village

Once off limits to the world, there in the remote northeastern hills of India, lies mystic. Hills landscaped by primitive villages, some still untouched by modernization, this Molungyimsen village up on top of a steep mountain, is a must for die hard nature lovers. The hike is about 15 km, not for the weak at heart. For the first 6 kms, it is a walk through the jungles, the next remaining hike up the village is where the challenge is. The angle of the hike almost 45 to 50 degrees, but once up the top, the feel ling is exhilarating . .

Nagaland

The uncontested 'wild east' ofIndia, Nagaland is probably one of the reasons you came to the Northeast in the first place. A place of unparalleled primeval beauty, Nagaland's dazzling hills and valleys - right on the edge of the India-Myanmar border - are an otherworldly place where until very recently some 16-odd headhunting Naga tribes valiantly fought off any intruders. Of course, the place is a shadow of its once savage self today, and much of the south of the state is fairly developed. In the north, however, you still stand a goodchance of meeting tribesmen in exotic attire who continue to live a lifestyle that is normally only seen within the pages ofNational Geographicmagazine.

Wonderful place and lovely people

Nagaland is a wonderful place to visit but one must keep in mind that there are no great activities happening here throughout the year but December is a special month for them when the Hornbill festival happens during the first two weeks. Life is pretty much very laid back and nobody's in a hurry . The war cemetery in Kohima and the Ao Baptist church in Dimapur are must visit places and if you have time then make a point to go to the local bamboo centre just outside Dimapur called Bambusa where you can get exquisite bamboo products and gift items and wonderful food at the restaurant in the same premises. One thing to be warned of would definitely be the bad roads especially on the way to Kohima. On the whole, great stay and wonderful people and I felt like I was in a different world altogether .
