A country is defined by its boundary, a material fence that bounds the geographical locations. Still ever imagined of a village that shares international boundary without a fence? Infact the chief of that village resides at the border. I mean he literally dine with his right leg in Burma (Myanmar) and the left leg in India.
I am talking about the north-eastern village of Longwa, the land of the Konyak tribes in Nagaland.
Situated at the border of India, in the district called Mon, in Nagaland, Longwa, is the home of the most fierced headhunter tribes called the Konyaks.
These tribes are known for their tattooed faces and the headhunting tradition. The chief Angh controls the whole village and he has approx 60 wives to himself and rules over 60 villages in the Longwa area!
Let me detail one of my most culture shocked weekend getaway! Like i always say that its a boon that i m born here in the north-eastern state of Assam and that too in the tea-city of Dibrugarh!
It was 13th of April, me and Gaurav had to take two days off our work and decided to move into Nagaland, somewhere more off-beat and to something more unique. We heard about Longwa in Mon district and finalised our destination. We decided to stay the first night at Mon and Longwa the next day.
Our route be: DIBRUGARH-MORAN-SONARI-TIZIT-MON-LONGWA
