North East India

 

The seven sister states and parts of Bengal and Bihar, make up the North-East India zone. It is a land of undulating hills and plains with luxuriant green cover and a wide variety of flora and fauna, interesting people and varied culture. 

If you like your cuppa chai, the north east is the original tea destination. From the luxuriant tea estates in Assam, to the ones in Darjeeling, the aroma and flavour of tea fills the land. Arunachal pradesh is a orchid paradise, home to more than 500 species of orchids. Several rivers run by it, like the Siang, Lohit and Tirap. The tribes of Arunachal are colourful and friendly people.Manipur is the land of “Radha and Krishna”. Don't forget to try the “Ras Leela” dance, while at Manipur. It is also the birth place of Polo – its an integral part of their social life. Colourful intricately woven clothing of Manipur is a must-buy. Manipuri-dolls are famous for their vibrant colours. Meghalaya – the abode of clouds, receives the highest rainfall in India. Green coated and beautiful, it is famous for the monsoon. Its picturesque little city of Shillong makes the idyllic holiday postcard.Mizoram is popular for its indigenous festivals, tribes and culture. It has a traditional repertoire of folk culture. Nature could not have been kinder to Nagaland, the exquisitely picturesque landscapes, the vibrantly colourful sunrise and sunset, verdant family of rarest flora.-this is a land that represents incredible beauty, blended perfectly for a breath taking experience. The graceful hospitality and warmth of the colourful people represent the perfect mix of people and nature. Sikkim is one of the primeval lands unlike other Himalayan lands, and remains pristine and well-preserved. It is home to the famous peak of Kanchenjunga.

Kaziranga National Park at Assam is a haven for wild life enthusiasts. It is home to the famous one-horned rhinoceros, Indian tiger, elephants, swamp deer and is a world heritage site. It is recognised as an important birding place and is a bio diversity hotspot.  

Darjeeling is a posh-town in the north east, with a quaint old English feel. Stone buildings, fancy cafes, tea estates, restaurants and modern facilities give this town an urban feel. The heritage rail (Darjeeling-Himalayan railway) at Darjeeling is a world heritage site. 

The North East Indian culture is exotic and diverse. The varied and diverse tribes, the equally varied folk culture, the colourful folk festivals, the warm people, the salubrious climate make it a must-visit destination. The cuisine is also diverse, with a heavy Burmese and South Asian influence. Momos, Gya Thuk (Thupka), Phagshapa, Gundruk are absolutely delicious! 

A journey through the North East is refreshing and beautiful. It leaves us with a desire to explore more of the myriad cultures and traditions of the place. It is true, the mountains of the north east call to us, each time more endearingly, until we are completely bewitched by its charms.
