During our adventure holiday in Nagaland, we will stay at a hotel in Kohima for 4 nights and at the state run guesthouse in Dzukou Valley for one night. All accommodation adhere to basic hygiene standards.
Yes , it is perfectly safe to travel to Nagaland in Northeast India. The state was under civil unrest a decade back but is now peaceful. Naga people are some of the most friendly people you will meet.
Dzukou Valley trek is a relatively easy trek. We will climb up from Vishwema village. The first half an hour is steep part as we hike up the forest. But once we reach Dzukou point, it is a gradual walk to the through the bamboo clad Dzukou valley to the guesthouse. This should take arund 3-4 hours from Vishwema. The next day we climb back down to Jakhama village and drive back to Kohima.
Japfu peak, at 3048m, is the second highest point in Nagaland. The hike starts from Kigwama village through the forest. Some parts of the trail are steep till we reach the ridge to the summit. The ridge takes us to the base of the peak as we tackle some boulders to climb our way up. We have to be careful while climbing these boulders. At the top, you get a fantastic view of the Kohima valley and landscape. The trek will take around 7-8 hours in total.
