East of Assam, Nagaland shares its own eastern border with Myanmar, from where the land rises to the upper reaches of the historic Chindwin river. The area has a strong tribal presence and culture. The wildlife of the Naga hills is as distinctive as is its plant life. Botanists in particular write reverentially of the orchids that grow profusely in the tropical evergreen forests.

The lush forest supports a healthy population of elephants.

What makes a visit to Nagaland even more fascinating is the progression of vegetation as you go higher, with subtropical pine and temperate deciduous forests dominating the upper slopes. The Itanki Sanctuary is a little Protected Area that lies in the this beautiful land. This 202 sq. km. sanctuary consists of a subtropical forest in the southwest corner of the state bounded on the west by the Dhansiri river, which also forms the state border with Assam. Most of the sanctuary is low lying with the highest point being only 677 m.
