An Ode to Northeast India

An old and enlightening quote by Ibn Battuta says “Travel leaves you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller”, and a trip to Northeast India will make you a profound storyteller! Made up of seven separate but adjoining states famously called as Seven Sister States, Northeast India’s beguiling tribal culture, surreal UNESCO sites, Asia’ cleanest village, the unique living root bridges, colourful monasteries echoing with chants, and the misty mountains can captivate anyone with its unmatched beauty.
An offbeat destination in itself, the Northeast is best explored by road! The essence of North Eastern states of India like Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura, collectively lies in its tribal culture, handicrafts and the unique wildlife parks. Home to some of the most colourful and cheerful people, the North-eastern part of India is also quite an ethnically diverse region. The epicentre of many diverse communities, cultures and faiths, the Northeast truly epitomizes the Indian ethos of “Unity in Diversity”. The states, its tribes, the culture, cuisines, handicrafts, and the unique flora & fauna make Northeast one of the coveted destinations for travellers who crave and seek adventure, excitement and diversity! So, if you’ve travelled across India but have never visited the Northeast, here are the reasons to do so.
