North East India – Travel Guide

North East India – Beyond the crowds

If you are looking for an adventure off the beaten track in India, you have to travel to North East India. A breathtaking destination that is unique and much different from the rest of the country. And yet, it remains distinctly Indian, in culture and traditions.

The region comprising the Indian states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura is wedged between Bhutan, Tibet (China), Bangladesh and Myanmar. The first thing you notice during your visit to this place is the complete absence of the chaos – the noise, traffic and the teeming crowds – of Delhi, Jaipur and Mumbai.

This is the quietest and the least populated part of India, with an almost perfect climate. It never gets too hot, and stays cool even during the summer. There is travel caution during the monsoons for the period June- September, when some parts of the region receive excessive rainfall. However, September is the time of receding monsoons and for those who do not mind a bit of rainfall, the sights around the place are at their best.
