"Fantastic opportunity to see the Naga in their tribal costumes. The Festival itself is put on for tourists as an attempt to preserve the area's heritage. A riot of colour, singing, folk dancing and re-enactment of folk stories. Two days is enough..."

"I have to admit, that I do not like artificial vilages, but this one is an exception. At least when Hornbill festival takes place. All 16 tribes being present in one place in more or less every day fashion is a must to se"
