Looking for some unexplored nooks to escape into nature? Good news! Because we just discovered a hidden gem right here in Nagaland. It’s a beautiful eco-friendly space called Shalom resort in Dimapur, Nagaland.
Explore Shalom Resort – a beautiful retreat tucked amidst the hills at Gaili Village in the Peren District of Nagaland.
Gaili village, also known as Hepuluzam, is located in Peren district which is around 37 kilometers (a one and a half hour drive) away from Dimapur.
The place has five beautiful cottages that offer a stunning view from each balcony. The resort also has two morungs (traditional huts) of Zeliang and Kuki tribe that comes with a personal cooking space of your own. Don’t you think that already sounds awesome? Do not forget to check out the long stretch of land decorated with pebbles, seasonal and wild flowers, sheds, ponds, swings, and see-saws.

Do not miss the beautiful view from the bamboo balconies
Apart from the surroundings of nature, the Shalom offers a variety of activities and facilities like trampoline, archery area and a swimming pool (with a lifeguard cum instructor available throughout the day).
For fishing enthusiasts, the resort also offers angling gear. Also, do not forget to explore the surrounding trekking trails and off road tracks that are open to the public. These trails are however open only seasonally i.e. from March to May and in the months of October and November. The trails may get unsafe during heavy rainfall.
The restaurant also sets up an open bar and hosts karaoke from time to time for their in-room customers for overnight stays. Sounds like the perfect location for a get-together?
Cooking is actually a relaxing activity when you have such scenic beauty in the backdrop.
“I love coming to Shalom with friends and families, as we have our family forest here. One of the things we look forward to in every visit is to sit atop the wizard towers; the view from there is beautiful – especially in the evenings.
The morungs are a great stay option for people coming from outside. I recommend that they stay overnight to experience the local way of life in a natural setting. The best part is, we now have another option close to home, besides Kaziranga for a weekend outing.” Shared by @lolo_ndang
End the day by taking a well needed rest inside the traditional morungs. Absolute bliss!
Other interesting projects coming up include a mini golf space and a futsal arena. So whether you’re a denizen or a traveller, a visit to Shalom resort promises to rejuvenate your appetite for both, adventure and leisure. Just make sure you don’t plan your stay on a rainy day as the muddy roads uphill to the property can play a menace.
