How to reach:From Kohima, head towards one of the following trekking trails: 1. Viswema: Easier but expensive because of the Taxi Sumos going up the mountains, off the national highway. 2. Jakhama: Cheaper but difficult. The trek is much steeper compared to the other two and the jungle is thick, better for experienced trekkers on a budget. 3. Khonoma: Less popular and has waterfalls on the way, but not recommended due to lack of facilities compared to the other two trails. The valley is hidden behind the mountains and is accessible through well-defined trekking trails which start from the base of the mountains and winds its way up to the top. The trek is relatively easy and can be completed in a day(to and fro from Kohima), but it can be quite steep in some places. However, the views from the top are truly breathtaking, making the effort worth it. For those who prefer a more relaxed pace, there is a camp site in the valley with basic facilities for travellers established and maintained by local village organisations. Travellers can fine a kitchen with a fireplace, toilets, and a dorm equipped with mats, pillows and blankets for hire. The visitors can set up also set up tents to camp and enjoy the serene surroundings.

Why is it better to buy a package?Tour Guides: Our tour guides are all experienced and licensed by the Government so you only have to worry about getting the right timing and angle on your photos. Food & Culture: Nagaland is culturally very rich and it's well preserved, which reflects in our unique choice of food. If you're daring, you can try the "exotic" options which you will not find anywhere else. We really discourage surviving entirely on Maggi or Puri Sabzi when in Nagaland. Convenience: Let's be honest, Nagaland still isn't very developed and have poorer public tourism facilities compared to other countries or even the other states of India. Unless you spend a lot of time to research or have local contacts who can help you, as an outsider the thought of visiting inner regions of Nagaland can be a bit daunting because of the language barriers and culture differences, especially in the villages. Support Local: We serve as a mediator. Our primary business is connecting customers with local business and people who are limited in resources. Make new friends: Connect with other fellow travellers, and make unforgettable memories as you go on an adventure together. Cost Effective: Apart from all these reasons, one more reason is that it's simply probably going to be cheaper for you to book a package anyway compared to trying to figure out how to do it by yourselves.

We had an amazing time with TrulyNaga!
From affordable tour packages, to extremely friendly guides that made a first-time trekker’s climb up dzukou feel like walk uptown.
