Hornbill festival is a massive international occasion celebrated annually (Dec 1-10) in Kisama village, Kohima. Before anything is spilt about this celebration, one must know that Nagaland is a land of eccentric cultural festivals. These festivals are held year-round among the varied tribes in their respective towns and villages. The fundamental theme of these activities (in a nutshell) is to bring back to life the age-old tradition of the ancestors for a brief moment as a matter of identification and to showcase an element of a long-lost culture to the contemporary generation. Once the celebration is set off, all the people present in the event have the liberty to indulge themselves in the traditional luxury of delicacies, drinks, arts, crafts, music, attire, folklores, equipment, paintings, muses and etcetera at the costs ranging from free to extravagant.
Apart from indulging ourselves in the festive celebration, we are going to stay in a few of the warmest homestays, and hop villages, we are also going to trek to the mighty Dzukou valley, have a night of camping in the wild and make many many new friends!
We are looking forward to hosting you in our home!
