Kisama, Kohima
This is a village and an open museum off the Imphal Road about 10 kilomteres from the Central part of Kohima. Here you will be able to experience the authentic living styles of the Nagas. The place is a Heritage Village since they have successfully preserved the joy of simple living of the tribals in one place. There are number of Naga traditional houses here along with some bachelor dormitories which are locally known as morungs. The most important fact about the Kisama Heritage Village is that the largest Naga Festiva, The Hornbill Festival is celebrated here. This is a week long festival which is celebrated every year from the 1st to 7th of December. Tourists come here to watch tribal people gather together and enjoying their singing, dancing and sports. Most of the people who come here are in their traditional warrior attires. The Kohima Rock Festival is also celebrated in this village.
