Nagaland, the land of Naga tribes - is the state with the widest range of indigenous tribes in Northeast. The state is so rich in diversity that each of its districts is basically a tribal territory. And, each of the tribes speaks their native dialects which is usually unknown to a different tribe. They had to come up with a new language called Nagamese, which is an amalgamation of Assamese, English, and few words from native dialects. Apart from the picturesque landscapes of hills and rivers, the beauty of Nagaland lies in its unique cultural heritage, music and cuisines, which each of their tribes has been preserving for centuries. Nagaland is the one of the best states to explore north-eastern tribes.

With Kohima as its capital, Nagaland offers a lot of sightseeing places to explore within the vicinity of Kohima, as well as other remote places in the state.
