Tourist attractions you want to explore in Dimapur

Flanked by the pristine and softly flowing River Dhansiri on one side and beautiful forested meadows on the other, the charming city of Dimapur, in Nagaland, is an unexplored and unspoilt destination. Steeped in mellow serenity, Dimapur was the ancient capital of the powerful Kachari tribe and is speckled with ancient ruins of monoliths, temples, baths and embankments, all of which trace the town's historical roots to the 13th century AD.

Meaning the city near a great river, Dimapur acts as the gateway to parts of Nagaland and Manipur, and also reflects the tribal culture of these two states. While parts of the city are bustling commercial centres, others are endowed with lush meadows, resembling the setting of a hill station. Surrounded by dense forests, gushing waterfalls and towering mountains, Dimapur is an ideal choice for adventure lovers and solace seekers alike.

This equatorial forest stretch is known for its natural beauty and semi-tropical vegetation. The park is also teeming with flora and some of the popular varieties are mahogany, bamboo, rattan, palms etc. In addition, mountains, cliffs and valleys in the park offer opportunities for trekking, hiking and camping.
