The Hornbill Festival of Nagaland
Dzuleke - Kohima - Mokokchung
Nagaland, the tribal hinterland of India, is known as the ‘land of festivals’. The sixteen Naga tribes here celebrate with gusto and infectious zest. Festivals are considered sacred and participation, though compulsory, is more by choice. Recognizing their rich culture and heritage, the Government of Nagaland organizes the Hornbill Festival.
We had a wonderful trip and Kevin was a great guide; very knowledgeable, thoughtful and spoke perfect English. There were so many memorable experiences during the week and we really felt immersed in the local culture for the entire time.
Greener Pastures arranged a superb, bespoke trip to Nagaland for us at very short notice. They were really helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. The driver was excellent on hideous roads and our guide was great fun.
We recently completed an incredible adventure in Arunachal Pradesh in North East India. Our outfitter, Greener Pastures were essential to the success of the trip. Through our guides, we were immersed in the native Adi tribes and the local Tibetan community.
Our guide, Tassang, was an extra value. Being an Apatani he knew everything about Ziro and Myoko, took us to homes of locals and introduced us to his friends and relatives. Overall, we can highly recommend Greener Pastures to anyone planning a trip to Northeast India.
