Mokokchung Travel

The AO tribe of the Nagas have made Mokokchung their home. This place is around 150 km from Kohima and is located at an altitude of 1350 m above sea level.

Mokokchung is considered the capital of this branch of the Nagas. Dressed in the warrior dress of beautiful black & red hand woven shawl with its white decorated band signifying the prowess over enemies, the AO warriors jostle on the busy streets of Mokokchung.

The tribe celebrates ‘Moatsu’ and ‘Tsungrem Mong’, the harvesting festivals during the months of March and August respectively. Visit to this village provides an insight into the life and social setup of the Nagas. The village is self governed and the women folks are busy creating a wide variety of handicraft articles. The women are ever eager to teach a trick or two to the visitors, if approached.
