India: Passage To The North East - Nagaland
A Journey to India’s North-Eastern States is a romantic adventure in the best traditions of travel and adventure. Cut off for years, Nagaland was only opened to visitors very recently. The ‘Peoples of the Hills’ came to exemplify an exotic society and their
lands are a region of green hills and verdant valleys where much of the terrain remains forested, and towns and villages perch picturesquely on hill tops. A vibrant, incomparable cultural heritage remains imbued in the isolated Naga Hills to entice the traveller.
You’ll explore the great cultures of India, beginning in Kolkata, but the highlight of this Journey will be your encounter with all the remote Naga tribes united for one massive extravaganza—the Great Hornbill Festival. Brimming with music, vibrant dances, games, and colourful ceremonial attire, including decorated spears, beaded textiles and ivory armlets, elaborate headgear of woven bamboo festooned with flowers, boar's teeth and hornbill feathers, your eyes and cameras will capture the splashes of mesmerizing colour and the exuberant atmosphere of this visual feast. It’s a kaleidoscope of the cultural diversity of Nagaland.
