Longkhum is renowned for its handicraft and handloom items.
Major tourist attractions include the Mata Yimkong - the top of the hillock where once stood a fortress and the students' Jubilee Tower, the highest point of the village. The footprints preserved on a rock surface, believed to be of China and Tibetan – the Romeo and Juliet of the Ao Naga tribe, is another interesting spot worth visiting.
Longkhum celebrates most of the Ao tribe festivals including the Tsungremmong (on the first week of August) and Moatsu Mong (in early May).
Longkhum is linked by road to National Highway-61.
