I have to admit, that I do not like artificial vilages, but this one is an exception. At least when Hornbill festival takes place. All 16 tribes being present in one place in more or less every day fashion is a must to see.

Please stay at Kohima because you will have more options to stay. Kisama is just a short distance from Kohima.

You will not be able to book accommodation in off season. Once the festival is hosted on the web then it will open links for accommodation.
