Nagaland

Situated in the remote northwest region of Myanmar, Nagaland is one of the least visited locales in Asia. Home to the Naga people, tribes of which also inhabit northeast India, it is a varied landscape of rugged hills and lush jungle. For centuries, the Nagas engaged in headhunting, a practice now outlawed. Many exotic traditions remain, though, most notably their elaborate costumes and headdresses incoporating tiger tusks, bear fur, hornbill feathers, and much more.
