Its zzzzzku... not Dzoukou,that is what the young chap at dimapur sumo counter told us when we were searching for shared vehicle to Kohima.

Our group of 3 gents(me being the oldest..) arrived at Dimapur in early morning by the the overnight train from Guwahati and straight away went to the sumo counter and got tickets for Kohima bound sumo.

It took 4 hrs to reach kohima,the road condition was extremely bad due to the double lane work added with monsoon rains...which generally takes 2.5 hrs..

The trek to Dzukou can be started from either Vishwema or Jakhama village which falls on the Kohima-Imphal national highway...shared sumos are available from Kohima to Vishwema at regular intervals..

We had plans of spending the night in Kigwema village which is 3 k.m ahead of Jakhama....so the sumo from Kohima dropped us at Kigwema and we settled for the day in the beautiful Kigwema village..

In our homestay we met with 2 young fellows from Bangladesh who have set foot in India for the first time to explore the North east..together we hired a sumo which dropped us till the starting point of the trek in Vishwema village....and then the heaven opened up and we had to cover our selves in raincoats/ponchos...

The trail was extremely muddy and slippery and the continuous rains added more to our pains..

We reached the trekkers hut after around 5 hrs of hiking through the extremely narrow,muddy and slippery trail..

The trekkers hut dormitory is booked on first come first serve basis and we were the first group to reach that day...

The weather cleared to some extent for and we descended in the valley after having quick lunch(which is maggi..)..

The weather was clearing in the afternoon and the valley was completely visible...it was a pure bliss..i have never ever seen such a place in my life before...

After spending 3-4 hrs in the valley we returned to the trekkers hut...
