A lesser known Valley of Flowers : Dzukou valley in Nagaland

The Valley of Flowers in Uttaranchal is a fairly well known place, and every summer hundreds of trekkers/ hikers visit the valley. There must be many such valleys in the whole of India, and till a few years ago, these were hidden places that only the locals know about.

Keen hikers and nature lovers are discovering more of such places – and Dzukou valley in Nagaland is one such place.

Behind the Japfu peak, this valley is  filled with flowers during the late summer and monsoon, and streams with ice-cold waters in the winters.

Its quite accessible, being only a few hours drive from Kohima. But to get into the valley proper needs half a day’s hiking. Camping is possible when it is not bone-chillingly cold. A nice trip is to go to the village of Khonoma, and from there do the hike to Dzukou.

See here some images from the valley.
