Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was more interested in the learning about the "green" practices of the village, but it does have a history and rich culture as well. They have three kind of tours : i) village walk (₹ 500 per group), ii) village walk plus rice fields (₹ 1000 per group) and iii) village walk plus joom agriculture. The young guides are from the village and explain nicely about their history, fortifications, lifestyle etc. The views of the hills, fields and even the village are mesmerizing. Groups doing the second walk might see Mithuns (the state aniaml of Nagaland) in semi-wild conditions. Unlike Joom practice followed elsewhere in north-eastern India, in which the wild trees are burnt to reclaim land for agriculture and the tribe moves after a harvest, here the wild trees are just cut from the main trunk and the root is left live. The leaves thus fallen act as manure. The tree regrows in due course. The tribe does not move from their place.

We stayed at Khonoma for 3 nights & had a lovely time in and around the place. Khonoma itself is a small village where you can go for walks in the village & paddy fields. A guide is required though. You can also do day trips to Dzuleke & Poilwa from Khonoma.

The village walk was good. A guide is available here who walks you through the village and shows the local flora. The views from the hill top are beautiful. You get to know about Naga culture and tradition. Worth a visit.

Get ready to walk.. lots of steps to climb.. avoid carrying a baby pram and take a sling harness instead if you have a little one.. carry lots of water and enjoy the rich culture and the beautiful views from the mountain tops .

Khonoma is one of the oldest villages in Nagaland, and like the rest of them, is a beautiful quaint little place which is perfect for a getaway from the maddening crowd. The homestays are warm, friendly, surrounded by beautiful plants and hills. Nagaland is a must visit destination

The ride was long and backbreaking . Completely dilapidated road and exorbitant car fare. It was frankly not worth. Although we had a great guide and he really nicely explained the various aspects of their culture and practices. That was the interesting part. As per village noting special really .

One of the most memorable and eye opening experiences in my life was the Khonoma trek to dzuko valley. You'll get to live your life as raw as it gets. The clear night sky view (attached pic taken from my phone) and the other visual treats adds as a great kicker to the whole package. Once you live as a Naga, you'll start to think and enjoy life in a different style.

I am very grateful to Cristo (+918414982409) , a seasoned mountaineer and a young Naga (an epic person) who helped us to enjoy the stay and experience Nagaland as a true local.

This village is approximately 20 KM away from Kohima. It is one of the green village and has its own history. One walk around the village to understand the village and the community. Forts, archaeological places and also paddy fields worth seeing. Home stays and guided tours are available.

Khonoma is said to be the 1st green village of Asia. A village of Angami naga tribes. Angami's used to be a warrior tribes, was into hunting. But they have learned to preserve nature.
This village is 20km away from Kohima, the capital of Nagaland. Roads are so,so. Can be said better than the usual road conditions of Nagaland . They have a village tourist center, from where one can take a guide to show you around.
Birding is also another attraction here and one may find many rare species of birds here. There are 3 small castles here ,representing the British war time.one Morang is situated at the center of the village. Taxis are available for day trip.There are home stays to stay overnight. People are very friendly and helps tourists around.
