A scenic town blessed with breath taking natural beauty, Kohima is the capital city of Nagaland and lies complacently shrouded at the eastern frontiers of the mighty Himalayas. Kohima Travel guide is incomplete without a mention of its natural beauty and rich heritage. The modern city of Kohima was built in by the British to enjoy the eastern region.

This is the very place where the World War-II battle took place and thousands of soldiers sacrificed their lives. The majority of Nagas and Kukis reside in the region and protect their unique culture and identity. The colourful costumes of the local people, joyous and familiar behaviour makes it a wonderful experience to visit this city. The astounding places of Kohima that attract tourists are the Dzukou valley, Bara Basti and Cathedral of Reconciliation.

Kohima town is the second largest urban area of Nagaland after Dimapur-Chumukedima and 'Kohima Village', known as ‘Bara Basti' or 'large village', is the second largest village in Asia. The city also has a great cemetery for the soldiers who died in the war and is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

If you are looking to see tourist spots within Kohima town then one (01) day stay in Kohima is sufficient. However keep in mind that the traffic jam in kohima is terrible - 20 minutes ride can sometimes take as long as 1 to one and a hours. If you want to see places on the outskirts of Kohima like Khonoma, Dzukou Valley than you will need a minimum of 3 days. Trip to Dzukou Valley and back requires minimum of 02 days.
