Nagaland is an Indian state in the far north eastern part. It borders the state of Assam to the west, Arunachal Pradesh and part of Assam to the north, Myanmar to the east and Manipur to the south. The state is inhabited by 16 major tribes, each tribe being unique in character with its own distinct customs, dress and language. Remote Nagaland is inhabited by a variety of Tibeto-Burmese peoples, the largest groups being the Aos, Angamis and Konyaks. These Nagas were once headhunters, but the practice was abandoned two generations ago. In the year 1816, Assam was invaded by Myanmar, following which Myanmar controlled the place from 1819 to 1826. In the year 1826, the British started ruling over this region. By the year 1892, the entire Naga region excepting the Tuensang area was under the control of the British. The British rule brought an end to the massive bloodshed and inter-regional conflicts.
Post India's independence, Nagaland remained a part of the state of Assam. The state is mostly mountainous except those areas bordering Assam valley. Mount Saramati is the highest peak with a height of 3,840 metres and its range forms a natural barrier between Nagaland and Burma. The state of Nagaland is extremely charming, lovingly and beautiful.
