Kohima is a quaint hill station in northeastern India. An eccentric melting pot of tribal groups from across the region, Kohima stands as a wonderful testament of diversity. Its bustling streets are filled with fashionable residents that groove to avant-garde sounds. Charming tin and bamboo houses sport pretty garden balconies between modern buildings. Every morning, hole-in-the-wall establishments serve limited batches of freshly brewed rice beer! From various viewpoints across town, witness panoramic vistas of mist-covered rolling hills and terraced rice fields. Discover war memorials, tribal museums, and light a candle or two at the Catholic church set on a hill. Kohima’s famous Mao Market is a fascinating showcase of the region’s bountiful produce that includes frogs, snails, insects, and wild herbs among others. Savor the aroma of the spicy Raja Mirch-induced Naga cuisine at friendly streetside restaurants. As night falls, travel downtown where you can sample a variety of mouthwatering dumplings. Particularly exciting is the annual Hornbill Festival, when the town’s outskirts swell up to witness the cultural extravaganza!
