About Mon

Mon is a town of Nagaland and is situated at an altitude of 2,945 ft above sea level. It is 357 km from Kohima. The district was carved out of the Tuensang district (Nagaland) on 21st December 1973. The town with the exception of the foothills is hilly area with steep slopes. It is a land of the Konyaks (who are most well known for being former headhunters). Historically, the Konyaks of Mon district were tattoed warriors. The tattoos on the faces and the exquisite jewellery adorning the warriors are signs of their achievements and instincts during the headhunting days. The Konyak Nagas are well reputed craftsmen and artisans. The main source of income for the town inhabitants is agriculture and tea a major crop that is grown in the state's plantations. Mon is a forest region and rich in flora and fauna. Mon is famous for its remote geographical location with the opportunity it affords to get a glimpse of a life far removed from others. During April, the Konyaks get into a celebratory mood with the Aoleong Monyu festival. Mon is simply a mystic and euphoric place that resonates the rich tribal heritage of the state.
