"The campsite itself resembles the terrace farms of Nagaland as it has three levels. The first level has the parking space, a kitchen area and a few tents. The second layer has most of the tents and the bonfire area. The third layer is the best as it offers an unbroken view of beautiful paddy fields of Jakhama village, with the backdrop of the hills. The whole campsite has a natural boundary of oak trees with flowers and orchids ornamenting it. It is only 5.4 km away from Kisama village, the venue of the annual Hornbill festival in Nagaland. For those looking to trek to the Dzukou valley, this campsite serves as the starting point and they can also take part in the acclimatisation walks and treks before they begin their actual trek. Distance/Time from Guwahati: 370.7 km / 10 hour drive "

This is the hosting ground for Hornbill festival that happens every December which makes it the perfect time to visit. You can find tribal houses and art installations everywhere. Traditional Naga cuisines specific to this region can be found here and the taste cannot be replicated at other Naga restaurants you may come across in the country. The cultural and lifestyle differences are huge but the people are very welcoming and known all over for their hospitality.
On entering Jakhama village you can see a kharu or a sizeable ceremonial gate that will take you through traditional kitchens where one can sample 'khie' - the local rice beer. A walk through Jakhama takes you through paddy fields and the riverbanks where you can watch the Angamis fish and farm in their traditional ways. As you go ahead, you can stop at local pigsties, fisheries and even a snail farm. You can see walls of houses riddled with bullet marks from World War II. Jakhama also houses a temporary education centre established by the Japanese during their attempted invasion. Don't forget to try the traditional Naga cuisine while you're there.
Dzukou valley is 2,452 meters above sea level and is literally the best view mountains and valleys that you ever come across will offer. It sits between the Nagaland-Manipur border and the trek to the top is adventurous. One way distance for the trek is 15-20 km, and you are required to be physically fit to do it without much hassle. There are times during winter when the top layer is covered with snow and the carpet of flowers in this landscape looks absolutely stunning.
