This expedition is not for all. This expedition is for the one who has inside him an ardent passion of capturing the colors of tribal rituals, the expressions of joy and the life away from the so called civilization in its raw form. The basic objective is to experience the phenomenon from within than being on a typical tourist visit. Hold your breath !

For a photographer, there are too much to take back. During our stay, we will be teaching various aspects of travel photography including exposure, framing and composition, play of light, night photography, use of flash, HDR, landscapes including a special coaching on travel writing and guidance of development of personal portfolio. There cannot be a better platform to learn about travel photography than this – riot of colors, cultures and costumes ! Festival of the festivals – Hornbill festival !


Nagaland, a mystical land fabled for its ferocious tribes living amongst narrow strip of mountainous territory with rugged hills, emerald valleys, and sparkling streams has always been touted as the “Land of Festivals”, as each tribe celebrates its own festival with dedication and passion, and the Hornbill Festival is the grandest of all. It is one of the biggest cultural extravaganzas in India and welcomes tourists from around the world to explore the rich culture and traditions of the amazing tribes if NE India and undoubtly is a fest for the eyes - a riot of colours and costumes coupled with a sense of the exotic and mysteries.

For us, it means a closer understanding of our fellow brethrens, their culture , and an opportunity to experience the food, songs, dances and customs of Nagaland and other NE sister states. Hornbill Festival is a great time to experience the cultural diversity of North East India on a go as Cultural troops from all the northeastern states participate during this week-long celebration. It’s a celebration of the past and the present, a cultural extravaganza that not only celebrates the tribal way of life but also bridges the gap between generations and revives and strengthens human bonds. The Hornbill Festival is a magical experience in itself and represents unimaginable beauty, moulded perfectly for a breathtaking experience.
