Nature is said to be a powerful healer and might serve as a reminder to take it easy. Want to take a break from the busyness of the city and venture into an off-beaten track then Dzukou Valley is the right place for you! A place quite aloof that is yet to be explored by many. It is a perfect place to escape into the magic of nature and soothe the soul.
The Dzukou valley, often known as the “Valley of the Flowers of the North East,” is possibly one of India’s best-kept secrets with beautiful hill towns and stunning scenery. It is a stunning location with undulating slopes and wild growths which sits on the border between Nagaland and Manipur. The place is especially beautiful in the summer when the vibrant blooms and the bright blue skies contrast with the lush green hillocks. During the winter, the valley is blanketed with snow, creating an amazing setting for a tropical gateway. It is one of the best hiking and bird-watching trails in northeastern India. The valley is known as the cold valley of celestial beauty because it is fully coated with frost in winter.
Only in this valley can you find the endangered Dzukou lily. The valley is also home to a variety of flowers, including lilies, euphorbias, and rhododendrons, and it enjoys a variety of blossoming seasons throughout the year. It is densely covered in hard cushiony grass that gives the entire area a mossy green spread appearance.
You need to travel to Dimapur first to reach the Dzukou Valley. Once in Dimapur, you can take a vehicle to Kohima, the capital of Nagaland. The trip takes only a few hours because the distance between the two cities is only 74 kilometers. Once in Kohima, take a private cab to either Zakhama or the Viswema Village from Kohima. You can embark on a trip from either Zakhama or Viswema Village to reach Dzukou Valley after a few hours of trekking.
Woahhh! Hello there! Stop! You don't wanna do this.
