Participating in a Nature Camp at Khonoma Village was truly an immersive and culturally enriching experience. Khonoma, located in the Northeastern part of India, is known for its stunning natural beauty, rich biodiversity and vibrant tribal culture, and is also known as Asia’s First Green Village.

Recently, I had the opportunity to embark on a journey to Khonoma Village for a Nature Camp that promised an immersive experience in the lap of Mother Nature. What followed was a truly unforgettable adventure that filled my soul with peace and wonder.

As I arrived at Khonoma Village, I was immediately struck by the pristine beauty that surrounded me. The village was enveloped by verdant forest and rolling hills and the air was filled with the sweet scent of wildflowers (especially the beauty of Rhododendron) and the chirping of birds provided a melodious soundtrack to our exploration.

Some of the best highlights of my stay at Khonoma Nature Camp which was organised and funded by the Nagaland Pollution Control Board was the sights and sounds of the wildlife, the aroma of wildflowers and the feelings of cool mountain breeze against my skin that left me in awe of the wonders of the Natural world.

The food served at the Camp was a delightful blend of local Naga delicacies and international cuisines, prepared with fresh organic ingredients sourced from neighbouring farms. Each meal was a culinary delight and the fresh sound of nature surrounding the dining hall added to the overall experience.

During my time at the Nature Camp, I had the opportunity to embark on a rigorous trek which was an interestingly challenging trail (a trail leading to Dzükou Valley) which brought me closer to nature, allowing me to witness the diverse flora and fauna that called this region home.

The best part of attending the Nature Camp was getting an opportunity to visit the Sheep Farm in Poilwa, Peren. The place was thoroughly mesmerising and nevertheless the Captivating view of Dzüleke streams left an unweaving memory in my heart.

As my time at the Nature Camp to an end, I found myself filled with a profound sense of peace and gratitude. Disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of city life and at the same time the simplicity and beauty of nature had reminded me of the importance of slowing down, appreciating the world around us and embracing the present Moment.

Overall, my experience at the Nature Camp at Khonoma Village was truly transformative, I left Khonoma Village with a heart full of memories, a mind filled with inspiration and a soul nourished by the beauty of the Earth. This journey will forever hold a special place in my heart as a reminder of the serenity and wonder that can be found when we allow ourselves to be embraced by nature’s beauty.

Lastly, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Ms. Khriehu Rutsa and her team from Nagaland Pollution Control Board for giving us the opportunity to participate in this Nature Camp and never forgetting our two teachers incharge, Sir Verahu Neinu and Ms. NeilhoukhonuoNipu for their tireless efforts throughout the camp.
