There is a cave complex at the Mimi village which is a relaxing experience for the visitor. There are four caves at Mimi which lies at a height of 300 to 400 feet. This cave give shelter to wild animals and bats are plenty in this cave. Though bats frighten people, but actually they are harmless. But seeing a horde of bats inside the cave can be a terrifying experience. But still the cave at Mimi is a wonderful tourist spot of Nagaland. The natural beauty of the cave is more alluring and the bats are not able to dampen that spirit.
The Mimi village lies beyond the Saramati range bordering Myanmar. Mimi area is in Pungro sub division in Kiphire district in eastern part of Nagaland. One of the Mimi caves is locally known as Bommr Cave (bat cave), belongs to the Bomrr clan. They have an annual bat hunting ritual in October where the only the Bommr clan participate.
They climb the cliff to reach the caves with firewood, block all the openings and light a fire to smoke the bats. The bats either fall dead or try to fly out, and those that come out alive are killed with sticks. Then these are counted. Their oral history recalls the practice going on for seven generations.
