Day Three: Visit to the Hornbill Festival and explore the quaint Kigwema village of the Angami tribe
After breakfast this morning head out for your last day at the Hornbill festival. Enjoy the festivities with the tribes as they enthrall with their distinct costumes and perform traditional Naga dances and ceremonies. Following lunch, if a little relaxation is in order, spend the afternoon at leisure in the tranquility of the camp. Or you may wish to explore the charming Kigwema village, just a few kilometers drive away. Kigwema is a quaint old village of the Angami tribe. Literally ‘inheritance of the house’, it is believed that many other Angami villages originated from here. In 1944, the Japanese forces came to Kigwema on their way to attack Kohima, and were provided shelter by the villagers. Walk through the lanes of the village seeing the traditional houses with their impressive wooden pillars, arriving at a local house to experience the Angami way of life over a cup of traditional tea. Later this evening, you have the option to enjoy the cultural festivities in Kohima for the last time. Return to the camp sated from the exhilarating experience at the festival, with memories to last a lifetime! At dinner sit back and reflect on the Naga way of life whilst the chef indulges you in an exquisite meal. Overnight at Kohima Camp, Nagaland
