Welcome to the Land of the Nagas!

After a traditional welcome of the Naga tribes, you can check into your Luxury tent and get settled in.

The rest of the evening is at your leisure. Soak in the serenity of the surroundings. Have a drink or two by the campfire and enjoy a sumptuous al fresco feast crafted by the in-house chef right in the lap of Mother Nature.

Witness the 16 tribes of Nagaland display their rich cultural heritage through their arts, dance, music, food, attire and headgear, handicrafts and paintings, in an extravaganza of colours, sights, sounds and tastes.

Other activities include games and sports like wrestling and archery, climbing a greased bamboo pole, chilli eating contests, motor rallies and literature fests. Choose from a magnificent collection of handicrafts and handloom, sure to leave you spellbound.

Head back to the camp for some lunch and a siesta!
