Will I get vegetarian food in Nagaland?

Yes, you will get vegetarian food in Nagaland. North-east of India is vast in culture with communities of group purely vegetarian so much so that they do not even take onion in their food. It is true that most parts of north-east including Nagaland are pre-dominantly non vegetarians with mostly red meat-based preparations. But after opening their doors to tourism, most places have options to choose from veg and non-veg.

Will I need Inner Line Permit (ILP) for Nagaland?

Yes, for visiting parts of Nagaland ILP is needed and will be taken care of.

Can I extend my days of booking?

Yes. Your days of booking can be extended based on availability and extra charges.

This is the first time in a tour I experienced that they organised 1 hour everyday painting classes free of cost. I was a beginner and mixing it with Naga tribe was a perfect combo. We stayed with locals, got to know their lifestyle and the food offered was traditional Nagaland food. The head-hunters tribe is the best part of this trip. I'm going to rate them 10/10, if someone is looking to travel differently, they have to travel with Awara Feet. Way to go guys!!!!

I did this trip with my sister and brother, we were shocked to see tribes of Nagaland. We visited house of head-hunters and they had human skulls hanging on walls. I also learned photography during my trip since they had a professional photographer giving sessions to learn. I have no complaints. Good job done guys!!

I went on tour with a group of 3 friends. We were living among the tribes watching their lifestyle and the unique houses and traditions they share. I was not carrying a camera so they lent me a camera to learn photography. We were lucky to meet the chief of head hunters. We will travel with them again for sure. We felt safe during entire trip and accommodations were arranged nicely.

I always wanted to visit Nagaland but heard from people that it is dangerous. Trust me, I was there and I never for a second felt like that. Infact, Nagaland has beautiful landscapes to explore and everyday seeing different tribes, interacting and living with them was awesome. I am an amateur photographer and the pictures I took there have added to my portfolio.

Our tour guide Angat had good knowledge about Nagaland and he made us enjoy the tour. He made us visit locals and also translated what they were saying to us. I enjoyed walking through forest and beautiful landscapes. We had photo-walks organised by Nitin who taught us photography on the way.

This was my second trip with Awara Feet, I have always trusted them and they organise trips to offbeat places. I like the fact they make sure they are having mini cleaniness drives in trips. Nagaland was always on my to-travel list and exploring the tribes of Nagaland was unique experience.
