       Nagaland is a vibrant hill state Located in the extreme North Eastern End of India,  bounded by Myanmar in the East; Assam in the West; Arunachal Pradesh and a part of Assam in the North with Manipur in the south.  It offers rich incomparable traditional and cultural heritage.  The native population of Naga tribes loves to add spices and chilies in their daily diet. The food habits reflect the unique cultural traits. The local indigenous tribal communities of Nagaland are non- vegetarians who savor meats of all the animals. Dogs, spiders, pork, beef, crabs, cats, chicken and even elephants are eaten with great enthusiasm.
