Angami Farm Life and Integrated Fish Breeding
Who is it for?
Why you will love it?

Step into the heart of Angami culture with our immersive farm life experience in Jakhama Village. This adventure offers a unique opportunity to explore traditional agricultural practices and innovative integrated fish breeding systems. Your journey begins at the designated campsite, where our local guide will lead you through the lush, terraced farms, revealing the intricate balance of local farming methods and the harmonious relationship the Angami people maintain with nature.

Discover the fascinating practice of paddy-cum-fish culture, an age-old agricultural system practiced in various pockets around Asia. This sustainable method allows fish to be bred in paddy fields, providing a symbiotic relationship where fish fertilize the crops, regulate micro-climatic conditions, soften the soil, and control pests by eating larvae and weeds. The rice, in turn, provides shade and food for the fish. Introduced to the Angami community in recent years with the support of the fisheries department, this practice has revolutionized local farming by enhancing productivity and sustainability.

Participate in a hands-on fishing session where you’ll catch fish with your bare hands, experiencing this age-old method that adds excitement and authenticity to the experience. As you explore, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the resilience and resourcefulness of the Angami farming community. The day culminates with a meal prepared from the fish you catch, offering a taste of Angami cuisine and a memorable conclusion to your adventure.
