If you are a ‘traveller’ and not a ‘tourist’ a motorcycle ride would be the best way to explore Kohima. One of the most picturesque places in the North East, Kohima has lots to offer to tourists with sharp peaks and valleys adding to your delight. There are a few agencies which let you hire motorcycles and explore the beautiful town. A ride to Dzukou Valley and trekking there is something you shouldn’t miss out on. Apart from this you should also pay a visit to the Japfu Peak and Pulebadze Peak.
It is highly recommended that you hire a local guide along with you as he or she will be able to take you to some breath-taking places, often unexplored by many tourists, and offer you insights into the legend of these places. The guide adds to your security as this place has witnessed insurgency and sectarian violence in the past.
