Doyang river is one of the most important river in the district. It is the biggest and longest rivers which run near the state’s southern boundary. The Angami people in whose area it rises calls it Dzu or Dzulu. It first flows almost due north, slightly turn towards east when it received an addition of Saju, an eastward parallel tributary. The river then enters Zunheboto district still flowing north westwardly. It later on forms a boundary line between Sema and Lotha areas. In the west of Litami it makes westward bend and emerged in the western Lotha area in Wokha district, and proceeds to the southern border of the district, it suddenly turns westward and then debouches the hills for the plains west of Koro village and then finally falls in the Dhansiri river of Assam valleys.

Many small hill streams from other districts have fallen into Doyang and it’s central and western parts. It has got three main tributaries such as Tsui, Tullo and Tishi.Tullo is the combined water of Keleki and Tangki streams, Tishi joins it in the Sema area. Doyang is not only important river for Wokha district alone but it is also equally an important river of Nagaland.
