Located between the North Eastern States of Nagaland and Manipur, the enchanted valley will leave you mesmerised with its unconditional and prolific natural bliss. Trekking amidst the gargantuan rainforests in Zakhama located 20kms from Kohima, the North Eastern Valley of Flowers is a treat to wandering soul and appetite to hungry travellers. Such was the surreal beauty of the place, I could not resists surrendering my senses to the perfectly mowed valleys, the grass that guides you through the path, the flowers that satiate your nerves and cloud that caresses you like a lover.
It is indeed one of the most idyllic natural evolution and months after I am still sitting with a major hangover remembering the essence of morning zephyr, feeling the touch of tickle of cold water stream flowing through the valley and submitting to the panoramic view of burnt wood on the valley.
