KHONOMA VILLAGE,KOHIMA,INDIA

The picturesque village of Khonoma, which lies 20 km west of Kohima, Nagaland of India offers delightful views of          Nagaland's natural beauty and   ecological diversity. This village was known for its fighting prowess in         the past. It is also known for the   fallow management of its alder trees which balances nature in the surrounding areas.

 

      The beautiful terraces which are carved out of the hill slopes surrounding the village are a sight to behold. The unique variety of soil condition and elevation of its fields have resulted in about 20 types of    rice being grown here. Passing through the traditional carved ceremonial gate, steep stone steps lead you to the highest point in the village.

 

Here, the Naga warriors made their last stand against the British in 1879. A simple white pillar commemorates G.H. Damant, Maj. C.R. Cock, Lt. H.H. Forbes and Sub. Maj. Nurbir Sai who died fighting the Nagas in Khonoma
