Dimapur City Guide

Before heading for Kohima, clay can be spent sightseeing at Dimapur. The Department of Tourism is setting up a Tourist Village Complex at the Chumukedima old village. This site was the first Headquarters established by the British, as they made an inroad into the wild country. A short ride up the hill, and an absorbing view of Dimapur and its immediate surroundings can be seen, way down below. Up here, the summer air is relatively cooler.

The Triple Falls, located in Seithekima village area is another resort being developed by the Department of Tourism. As the name would suggest, it is a three tier waterfall, cascading from a height of 280 feet into an inviting natural pool. Tucked away in the foothills, amidst the intemperate vegetation, you can plan a cool getaway. This resort will soon be connected by road. For the present however, this is a trekkers' haunt.

Places of Interest:

The North-East Zone Cultural Centre:
It preserves the various cultural heritage of the North-East in a small but well organised museum. Cultural festivals are also held from time to time.

Intanki Wildlife Sanctuary:
It is just 37 kms. Away from Dimapur. It is under the protection of the Forest Department s Wildlife wing. Though this is a habitat of various animals and rare species of birds, at present, no organised sighting tours are being conducted. The Department is however maintaining a small sanctuary rest house for those inclined towards solitude.

The Ruins of Medieval Kachari Kingdom:
Dimapur was the ancient capital of the Kachari Kingdom. A small footprint of this megalithic culture still exists. These ruins are contemporaries of the neighbouring Ahom kingdom, established before the 13th Century A. D. The monoliths represent the elaborate rituals of the cult of fertility.
