Is very Christian, but still supports a thriving tribal culture (16 tribes in all). The British administered Nagaland, but just barely, agreeing to leave much of it alone. At Independence, the fiercely independent-in-their-own-right Nagas refused to join India and fought a bitter insurgency.
The town of Dimapur has impressive monoliths, built before the invasion of the Ahoms in the 13th century. Outside the capital city of Kohima (74 km from Dimaput) is a large ol-fashioned Naga village. There is good trekking in the Dzukou Valley, 30 km from Kohima, and around Moutn Saramati, 269 kilometer from Kohima. Nagaland’s one airport is in Dimapur, which is also connected by rail to Guwahati, and by road to other towns in the northeast.
