Details of Districts in Nagaland

Meluri

The headquarters of the Pochury tribe lies halfway to Mt. Saramati. Being on the way to the Indo-Myanmar Trade Centre at Avankhung, one can see many Myanmarese Nagas shopping in this township for their basic necessities. The place is famous for its locally manufactured brine salt and cane furniture from Reguri village. The Wazeho mini cement plant is located in this sub division and one can see interesting rock formations here. Locals call it Latsam, the British called her Shiloh but now it is officially known as Shilloi. Shilloi Lake lies on the lower slopes of the hill ranges running along the Myanmar ridges, Meluri. Located 275 km away from Kohima, one has to travel east through roads lined with oak tree dressed in fresh foliage. The serpentine road spiraling downwards guarded by Rocky Mountains presents a mysterious and majestic sight. Surrounded by tall, striking and attractive hills, Shilloi Lake spreads over 0.25 to 0.30 sq. km., in the shape of a footprint.
