Dimapur to Kohima
I took a flight from Dibrugarh, Assam to Dimapur and reached in about an hour. Post that hired a cab and went to kohima straight away. The journey was quite adventurous, not to mention you get to see lush green valleys and mountains all around. I also saw a guy selling parrots, I was wondering whats that for and my driver explained that in Nagaland people eat parrots along with other kinds of meat, Okay!
It took me 3 hours to reach Kohima as some part of the road is in pretty bad condition. Well, somehow I reached my homestay, I stayed at Murong homestay or you can simply call it a lodge. Not bad for 3-4 nights of stay, but you have to make your own food.

Things to do in Nagaland
Day 2, We visited the local markets, the main reason for which I went to Nagaland was to explore the local markets and understand the Naga Culture. Like they say, if you wanna under a culture visit their local markets. I discovered they eat frogs, snails, bee larva ( and those cost from Rs 7k to 30k), Rats, Guinea pigs, Pigeons etc. Actually these are pretty much a regular diet of the Naga People. Post that we visited the beautiful Cathedral Church of Kohima, oh! Man it was breathtaking followed by war memorial.

Day 3, I took a ride to the Asia's first green village, the breathtaking, most magnificent art work of nature I have ever seen, Khonoma Village. Holy Moly! I have been to so many hillstations and seen so many mountains but this was different. This was something really magical. Oh you need to visit Khonoma whenever you are in Nagaland to believe it. Post that we went to the Heritage Village of Kisama, where the famous Hornbill Festival takes place every year, also crashed an angami tribal party accidentally but it was pretty fun. People in Nagaland are quite welcoming and warm hearted, best to make a few local friends to tour around. People their mostly speak in Nagamese and English.
