In the mystical state of Nagaland, where verdant forests meet rolling hills, lies a cultural extravaganza like none other – the Hornbill Festival. This vibrant celebration, typically held in December, is a journey into the heart of Nagaland’s rich heritage.
The Naga people, comprised of 16 distinct tribes, showcase their traditions through elaborate costumes and ritualistic headdresses adorned with tiger tusks, bear skins, and, of course, hornbill feathers – symbols of pride and cultural identity.
The Hornbill Festival is your gateway to this captivating world. A Greaves curated trip ensures that you not only witness the festival’s grand finale but also explore destinations that offer deeper insights into local culture and the region.
