Hello

We are planning a trip to Nagaland in January and would be so grateful if anyone could let us know how they got on. It appears that you have to book a tour to visit the area.

Any recommendations as to who to book the tour through from the UK. Also has anyone flown Kolkutta to Jorhat with Jet Airways.

Any advice welcomed

Many thanks

I have not heard of any tour operator doing Nagaland. By train you can go upto dimapur and from there you can take Taxi/bus till kohima. There are trains from kolkata till tinsukia then you have to change for dimapur. There is also flight till kohima from kolkata (indian airlines). You have to get innerline permit from kolkata for nagaland.
I think at end of December or start of January is time for famous festival Hornbill Festival.

It is not necessary to book with an agent to visit Nagaland. But it is possible!

Permits for visiting Nagaland have been abolished for foreign nationals during 2011.

Mod Note - I have moved your thread, Marianna, to the "Other Areas" forum, where you will find more information about Nagaland.

Have a look here for a start:
Nagaland, Mizoram, Manipur now open without permit...

Foreign tourists as of January 1, 2011 no longer require a Restricted Area Permit (RAP) / Protected Area Permit (PAP) to enter Nagaland. Previously, tourists were required to travel in a minimum group of four people. They were allowed to visit all 11 district headquarters and specified places with this permit, valid for 10 days, with an option to extend for up to a month.

The new rules only require foreigners to register themselves at the local Foreigners Registration Officer (FRO) of the district they visit within 24 hours of their arrival. However, the the citizens of Pakistan, Bangladesh and China still need to apply for PAP/ RAP from Home Ministry to visit Nagaland. This is a temporary change in effect for one year. The RAP/PAP application process is included below for those tourists who may still be affected by the previous rules.
