Event Details

The Naga, one of the over one hundred and fifty different ethnic tribes in Myanmar, lives in the remote area of Northwest Myanmar, Naga celebrates New Year for five days, during the time, they dance, perform, beat their drums, hold the tribal customs until midnight.

Not easily accessible due to rough terrain and a lack of modern infrastructure, the tribes of the Naga national group live in the far northwest near the Indian border. Every January they celebrate their New Year at a festival that brings various Naga tribes together to feast and dance. For the comfort of outside visitors, the festival site has western toilets and electric lights, as well as catered food, which is transported to the festival site to avoid straining the local resources.

There is no stronger demonstration of the diversity of culture than when one sees how many different Naga groups with different costumes, traditions and languages come together in one place.
