    You can visit the place before December, Hornbill Festival is something to watch! Please read the safety tips link to understand the safety of people in Nagaland. However, it is very safe for women because Naga people or rogues rarely touch women.

    It's a great place but you need a guide who can talk with village heads in local language..
