Mon

“All in all we had a great trip. The guide in Nagaland, Jimmy, is outstanding. He really made the trip an extraordinary one for us.” – Mary Connors, USA

Mon, the home of Konyaks, is situated at an altitude of 897 Mts. above sea level. It is interesting to see the tattooed faces wearing feathered headgear and traditional dresses. Konyaks are adept artisans and skilled craftsmen. One can find excellent wood carvings, daos (matches), guns, gun powder, head brushes, headgear, necklaces etc. made by these artisans and craftsmen. It is an exciting experience to visit an Angh’s house. Hereditary chiefs known as Anghs rule the Konyaks and the institution of Anghship is prevalent only among the Konyaks.
