First Green Village in India – Khonoma

Khonoma town is situated around 20 km from the state capital, Kohima. The town alluded to as Khwunoria (named after the Angami expression for a nearby plant, Glouthera fragrantisima), is evaluated to be around 700 years of age and is spread over a region of 123sq.km. The complete populace of the town is around 3000, settled in 600 family units. Khonoma is renowned for its woodlands and a remarkable type of horticulture, including the absolute most seasoned terraced development in the district. The landscape of the town is uneven, running from delicate slants to steep and tough slopes. The slopes are secured with lavish forestland, wealthy in different types of widely varied vegetation. The state fowl, Blyth’s tragopan, a bird currently broadly imperiled, is apparently found here.
