Naga Traditional New Year festival will be held at Nanyun Town in January, a town of Naga Self-Administered Zone

Naga Traditional New Year festival will be held at Nanyun Town in January, a town of Naga Self-Administered Zone, Sagaing Region, according to U Sein Maung region Hluttaw representative of No (1) constituency of Nanyon Town.

“Holding such kind of festival does not mean the development of Nanyun Township, however, it is sure that visitors to the festival can see the culture and living standard of Naga here”, said U Sein Maung.

Naga Self-Administered Zone includes three townships namely Lahe, Leshi and Nanyun. Nunyun Township has 8399 households with a population of more than 55,500.

Naga new year festival was held alternatively at the three towns of Lahe, Leshi and Nanyun. The first time in Nanyun was held in 2010 and the second time in 2013.

The festival is apparently attractive to photographers at home and abroad for photographing the hill tribe people.

The annual festival is held for two full days each January. The first day is set aside for rehearsing traditional dances, with the second day for the festival proper.

Ethnic tribes people strut their stuff in the afternoon and evening in front of a clamoring throng of spectators.

There are about 64 Naga sub tribes staying around the Naga Land in Sagain Division.

Carrying dry rations on their backs, Naga men and women from far away villages have to trek up and down the mountainous region to reach the festival.

The event alternates between Leishe and Lahe towns each year previously, and some must spend four to five days reaching the hosting place.
