Mimkut Festival Tour

Nagaland’s yet another celebrated festival Mimkut is definitely a must see. Celebrated by Kuki Tribe, this unique festival reflects the efforts of the tribals to please their God, Thilha. Mimkut is marked by sacrifices of unblemished white fowls; teamwork to clean the village, fields, water sources and adjoining hamlets; to fetch firewood for campfire and preparation of traditional food and JU (rice beer) for the community feast. It indeed makes a great festival to be witnessed in Nagaland. This is why, Tour My India has designed a Mimkut Festival Tour that not only allows one to witness this exciting and unusual festival but also give the opportunity to explore the known and unknown realms of the mysterious Nagaland.
