40km from Kohima, this is a fairly well developed village, thanks to the fact that Nagaland’s chief minister for many years is from here, and is well worth an overnight stay, especially during the Sekrenti Festival during the last few days of February.

There is a small museum of tribal artifacts. The village retains many traditional buildings, and the old gates, many built into trees, are very attractive. It is possible to walk down through the rice paddies into the valley below, or to trek up through rhododendron forests to nearby hilltops.
