In the Southernmost end of the Peren district and close to the border with the state is Mt. Kisa which is located in the Nzauna village. Often spelled as Mt. Kisha ot Kisha Khou it is a popular spot for tourists visiting this part of Nagaland. This place is of great historical significance as it was one of the frontiers of the Naga tribals and served as a point of contact with other tribes in the region in the past. This place is located about 28 km from the town of Peren and easily accessible.
Tourists here experience some breath-taking views of the valley and the other peaks in the area. It is covered with dense vegetation and rich in different varieties of flora and fauna. Unlike many other peaks Mt. Kisa has still been able to preserve its wild feel which makes it a perfect destination for an adventurous trip.
The rocky mountain range is an undisputed picturesque to the onlookers even from distant places including Tamenglong HQ. It is a fine spot for mountaineering exercise and for this fact a good number of mountain tracking teams from Imphal valley frequent this mountain for rock climbing exercise especially during winter season. It is said that since the precipice in the mountain range is not easily accessible, the legendary Naga revolutionary leader, Rani Gaidinliu took refuge amidst the rock caves of this precipice when she was pursued by the Britishers. Since the mountain range is not frequented by human beings for reason of inaccessibility, it remains to be the home to innumerable rare species of flora and fauna including Horn Bill, Chimpanzee, wild garlic and a lot more.
There is a strange practice prevailing among the local people with regards to collection of wild herbs from the mountain. The wild herb intended to be collected from the mountain shall be tied by the intending collector to be collected afterwards. If the herb so tied has been found to have been removed and freed, that particular herb is not to be taken away. However, if the tie to the herb remains as it was, then the herb is considered permitted to be taken away.
