14th December, 2018: Educational trip to Puliebadze Wildlife Sanctuary
Trekking to Mount Puliebadze had 2 main objectives.
Firstly, that it is a sanctuary to endangered species like Avifaunal Blyth’s Tragopan & Dark Rumped Swift; thus, it an important Avifauna Conservation Zone for Nagaland. Academic institutions like Kohima College must inculcate, understand & witness such positive pro- environmental progress.
Secondly, Mount Puliebadze was also about history—a strategic location of the Japanese invasion of Kohima, so also a site to walk upon a small part of what was World War II. Besides its trekking trials also revealed vestiges of pre-Christian tribal structures.
