The district of Wokha is situated on the mid-west
of the State of Nagaland and adjoins the Sibsagar plains of Assam on the
West. The district is intercepted at the heart by latitude 26°8’N and
longitude 94°18’E. Its area is not yet exactly known but it is about
one- third of the former Mokokchung district which was 3852 sq. km.
Therefore Wokha will be about 1300 sq. km.
Wokha district is bounded by Mokokchung district on
the north, Zunheboto district on the east and Kohima district on the
south, whereas it is bounded by Assam plain on the west side. It more or
less shares the same topographical character of the other districts of
Nagaland. Like the topography of the other districts it forms a mountain
terrain characterized by the ranges of the hills running from northeast
to southwest. It is interesting to note that Doyang, which is the
biggest river in Nagaland, flows through the middle of the district and
it crosses all three ranges of the district.
