Khonoma green Village Overview
A one of its kind project in the country, Khonoma village is a testament to the will power of the tribal groups of Nagaland to protect and conserve their natural habitat. The village is an eco-village with all forms of hunting admonished for a more sustainable ecosystem. The reason Khonoma is even more special is that the Naga tribes, who live here are traditionally known to be largely dependent on nature for their food and hunt on a mass level, but the tribes of the Khonoma villagers have given up on this century old practice, to protect their environment.
An ambitious project of converting a whole tribal village into an eco-friendly, conservation based village whose people have given up on traditional practices which used to harm their own surroundings. Traveling to this village hidden in the base of the mountains of Nagaland one admires their courage, resolve and success.
Khonoma Village is worth a visit to see for oneself the success that can be achieved in an alternative form of living.
