Winding roads and steep inclines make for a pretty town. It has a vibrant feel to and is as urbanized as any other Indian mid level town.

A winding road, past lovely vistas takes one to the musical sounding Mopungchuket. The village is almost perfect with clean streets and pretty houses.

another winding road is the chirpy sounding, if not tongue twisting, Chuchuyimlang, a rich repository of the Ao Naga traditions. Huts are lined along roads running off from the village centre with the usual morungs and log drums, while in the lanes it is common to see women busy weaving shawls, bamboo baskets and drying fruits and berries.
