This beautiful village is estimated to be 700 years old. Abode of the Angami tribe, known for their bravery and martial skills Khonoma, this village is famous for its forests and a unique form of agriculture, including some of the oldest terraced cultivation in the region. Villagers took a bold step back in 90’s to ban all logging activity and hunting in the forests of their community. Khonoma has now become a model village for its unique self sustaining practices.
The local cuisine is full of sweet aromas and distinct flavours such as bamboo shoots of dishes cooked in authentic Naga style, which make it a reason in itself to return to Khonoma.
