Khonoma Tailormade Holidays

Khonoma, a beautiful hamlet of Nagaland, is inhabited by the Western Angami community. It offers natural beauty and ecological diversity with dense forests and lush green mountains. Known as The Green Village for its rich flora and fauna, it is where the Angami people protect large parts of their community forests from over hunting and logging. In this respect, the village is unique, playing an important role in the conversation of the environment and has its own nature conversation sanctuary.

In the Angami dialect the village name in pronounced as ‘khwunomia’, a conjunction of the words ‘khwuno’, a small plant found around the village, and ‘mia’, meaning dwellers. The Angami people were fierce warriors, legendary for their bravery. Khonoma was considered the last bastion of the Naga warriors in their fight against the British Empire. Now, the village is known for its craftsmanship, especially the hand woven bamboo baskets.

A trip to Khonoma would not be complete without a visit to the amazing terraced rice fields where nearly 20 different types of rice are cultivated, each depending on the elevation and the soil of each particular block of field. Highly functional with perfected techniques of agriculture, the rice terraces also make for a stunning view. British officers were so impressed with these terraces that they wrote eloquently about them in their notes.
