The 34 km stretch that leads to Longleng from Changtongya is the perfect rural road for the adventurous motorist. Using an SUV or a two wheel cruiser, the driver can experience the true feel of a rural dirt track, while driving through the villages and interacting with the villagers. The open markets of the villagers are like images frozen in time when our forefathers used to sell or barter their ‘naturally organic’ agricultural produces. The Phom Nagas, who are the majority of this district, preserves their ancient culture through their festivals and artefacts like the log drums. The main festival of the Phom is Monyu, which marks the end of winter and the beginning of summer.
