Nagaland - anyone been there?

Friend of my wife which is from Nagaland invited us to visit her and family there next year.

To my shame, I did not even know that this state has majority of Christian population. Information of wikiwoyage/wikitravel is very limited what is see and where to go. If you've been there fairly recently, could you share your experience?

Really not much to do. Unless you like nature. Or are into researching mountain tribes.

Nature is what I really like. I will choose 12h hike in mountains in split second over going to a beach or some developed place.

Where exactly is she from - don't know yet, will get more details later.

What does a Chritian population have to do with your visit?

I have travelled extensively in Nagaland (mainly for birdwatching) and there are plenty of nature hikes, but you need guides and depending on your nationality, government permits for most places,

... if interested in the cultures and history of the area, having family/friends in the area, etc., it’s as good or better than a variety of places.

yes, there are a couple of destinations that you should village if possible.

1) Trek to the Dzoukou Valley:

Perched at a height of 2,462m above the sea level, this magical valley in Nagaland adore its pristine beauty and also witness some of the rare and exotic species of lilies.

2) Hike the Japfu Peak:

The highest point of Nagaland, Japfu Peak is undoubtedly the best spot to witness the enchanting beauty of the Dzukou Valley

3) Mountain Biking:

Nagaland also serves as a wonderful and engrossing mountain biking destination in the North-East.
