Hornbill Festival & Khonoma village
A 5-day journey combining a photography at the Horbill festival in Kohima, a showcase for the indigenous peoples of Nagaland, and a peaceful stay in the eco-village of Khonoma to meet the descendants of Nagas Angamis.
Nagaland has six recognized indigenous communities. Each of these communities has unique customs and traditions that are most often expressed during village festivals and often have agriculture as their central theme as it is the major activity in Nagaland. To revive and protect the rich culture of the Nags people, the Nagaland Government organises each year the Hornbill Festival, which usually falls from December 1-7 at the Naga Heritage Village in Kisama, 10 km from Kohima. This festival is a showcase of Nagaland traditions and brings together all the tribes of Nagaland under one roof. A good opportunity for visitors to experience this very particular culture of India.
We will spend two days at the Hornbill Festival to take the best photographs, we will stay in the peaceful village of Khonoma for three nights where you will meet the descendants of the Nagas Angamis and admire the beautiful surrounding landscapes.
