Noklak district was created on 21st December 2017 as the 12th district of Nagaland. The new district has the same boundaries as the former Noklak sub-division of Tuensang district. Noklak sub-division contained the five admin circles of Noklak, Thonoknyu, Nokhu, Panso and Chingmei.
A beautiful, rugged and varied district, Noklak is home to the Khiamniungan tribe who boast distinct cultural practices and who’s lands extend into Myanmar. This is a land on the frontier and there will be much to discover.
