To find semi traditional Naga villages that are at all accessible by road, your best bet is exploring the area of the Konyak tribe around Mon, a remote district headquarter in the northern Naga hills, 900 metres above sea level.

Just a few decades ago, the Konyaks were still head-hunters and you will still find elderly men with the typically Naga tattoed faces, who would have been involved in the tradional head-hunting at one time. As most of Nagaland has been converted to Christianity, the custom has now been outlawed.
