  • Naga troupes performing at Hornbill Festival



By whatever name people have called this realm, hidden among the mountains of India's northeast,

Nagaland has always evoked a sense of mysticism and awe, intensified by the remoteness of its geographical location

The Hornbill festival is a showcase of the entire Naga culture. It is an annual ten day feature that takes place from 1-10 December. It has become a mega event not just for the 16 tribes of Ngaland, but also the remaining seven Northeast Indian states to showcase the best of their cultural elements. It is a mammoth task for a tourist to cover all the Northeastern states at once, hence this festival provides the ideal platform for getting a glimpse of the eight sisters of India.
