Peren is the traditional home of the Zeliangrong and Kuki tribes. Mt.Pauna, the third highest peak in Nagaland stands majestically along with the Benreu range. It offers breathtaking views (of rhododendrons, orchids, mithuns, birds etc) and treks along with three escalating ranges leading to the peak. These ranges are about 6 km away from the Benreu village – the ideal time for trekking is during the clear month of November.
Around Mt. Pauna and the villages, are numerous spots containing articles of the past, both man-made and natural. Monoliths, curiously shaped stones and rocks, water springs, Morungs and other enclosures for traditional social bonding are scattered around this area. The hospitality of the villagers is the star attraction for visitors, who can pamper their taste buds with traditional F & B, besides being witness to the striking traditions of the people.
