Finally, after two years of wait, Hornbill Festival Nagaland is all set to light the state of Nagaland, India. Hornbill Festival started in 2000, and this year it will be in its 23rd edition. People travel from all across the nation to attend the festival because it has been such a big success over the years. The Nagaland “Hornbill Festival” is called after the bird having the same name ” Hornbill”. For many years, the image of the hornbill bird has been used as a symbol to represent the tribal celebrations in India. The Hornbill Festival this year will be a great occasion with fresh ideas and concepts, according to Tokheho Yepthomi.
The locals take part in the festival with the intention of showcasing and preserving their distinct cultures and tribes. However, the celebrations were interrupted in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-related concerns. In the year 2020, the festival was celebrated virtually for three days and last year the celebration was canceled midway through after citizens were killed at Oting in the Mon area. The well-known event, which celebrates Nagaland and its tribes’ vibrant and rich culture, is a fantastic opportunity to travel to this Northeastern area.
