Dzulekie is a beautiful picnic spot perched at an altitude of about 2,133 m above sea level, 40 km west of Kohima, the capital of Nagaland. Situated amidst lush evergreen sub-tropical forests, away from the hustle and bustle of the town, it is a much sought after destination for group picnickers. It is famous for deep gorgeous and cascading waters.
Major attraction here is the Dzulekie stream, which flows through a deep and narrow gorge, which looks as if the stream has gone underground at places. A rare species of rainbow trout can be sighted in this stream. The surrounding forest is home to the rare Blythe’s Tragopan, a species of Pheasant. One can also spot Mithuns (Bos Frontalis) grazing gently on the wayside.
Accommodation is available at the tourist resort with cottages, run by the Tourism Department.
