Kohima: Home Away From Home

As said, a good traveller has no fixed plans, and I thank my god that I did not make any plan for my visit to Kohima in October 2016.
After a long day of ridding a motorcycle with one of my friends from Delhi, whose heart and soul stays in North East, we reached to a place called “MORUNG LODGE” – My second home now.
This place belongs to a lady named Nino who believes in positivity and is a wonderful host. Her home is very close to Kohima War Cemetery (a tribute to the heroes who fought for their land during WWII) and surrounded by magical hills of Nagaland. I was super excited to see the view while having a cup of tea and listening to Mark Knopfler.
The breath of fresh wind can be felt from the balcony, our evening were spent sipping warm rice beer (a local brew) under stunning stary night sky.
We at Morung Lodge were served the dishes that were freshly prepared using farm vegetables. Personal care & affluent hospitality is provided to all the visitors to make their stay pleasant (will be cherished always). The whole staff put a great deal of effort to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.
Owner of the house has a vast knowledge about the local places which is extremely helpful in getting the most from your visit.

We spent our evenings listening to the stories/experiences of people from different part of the world staying together at the lodge. I am glad that I met people, connected with them & got to know their experiences. A couple from Germany, a single woman’s travel story from Israel, a guy travelling alone from Jaipur and motorcycle rider’s from Australia. We were all connected to each other through love for travel!
Would like to share a wonderful quote by Ibn Battuta before I end my little story of happiness that sums it up beautifully – “Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller”.
