Mon 1/undefined by Tripoto


On day 6, we proceeded to Mon which was 220 kms or 8 hrs away. Home of the Konyaks, the town was established at the land of Chen and Mon villages. Situated at an altitude of 2,945 ft above sea level, it is centrally located for the coronation of Anghs (chiefs). The place has always evoked a sense of awe and wonder in the minds of people. Colourful life and culture are an integral part of the 16 officially recognized Naga tribes of Nagaland. These 16 tribes are different and unique in their customs and traditions. These customs and traditions are further translated into festivals which revolve around their agricultural cycle. Songs and dances form the soul of these festivals through which their oral history has been passed down the generations.
