The North East region of India is fast emerging as the top destination for off the beaten track experiences. One of the last sanctuaries in Asia for anthropology, endangered wildlife, daunting mountains and landscapes, here people’s lives are dictated by the rise and folds of the mountains and ebb and flow of its rivers.
The least explored part of the country, and perhaps the most beautiful, comprising the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Nagaland, called as the “Seven Sisters”, the region was ravaged by separatist violence for many decades. But in recent times, peace has returned and more and more people are now exploring the region although impact of tourism in the region is still in its infancy.
In this North East India Travel Guide we focus on the essential things you should know before your trip to this wondrous region.
