North-East India is the untainted region of this country. As such, it is underrated. Because it is not widely known, there is little to no international tourism here. But if you want a glimpse of a pristine, untouched area, North-East India is the best place to go.
This region consists of seven states, which are collectively known as “The Seven Sisters.”
Arunachal Pradesh has an abundance of biodiversity. It has plenty of National Parks which boast lush green rainforests (Namdapha National Park). For adventure enthusiasts, it is the perfect place where to try rafting, especially on the Brahmaputra river.
Assam can be defined as a small nation itself. It shares borders with Myanmar and Bhutan. The rolling blue hills are postcard quality beautiful. Guwahati abounds in history and development. It can be a comfortable place to base your trip from. Manipur is a quirky destination. For crazy travelers who are seeking to do something out of the box, Manipur can take them to an all women’s market in Ima Keithel. Loktaklake, on the foothills of Sendra Hill, provides a stunning view fromSanghai Restaurant.
Meghalaya is home to three tribes. Its hills are named accordingly; Garo, Khasi, and Jaintia. Hike up the hills and see the rolling mountains draped in mist. Umiam Lake, Elephanta Falls, Siju Caves and Balpakram National Park are some of the natural heritages of the state. Mizoram has a plethora of landscapes which you will never get tired of. Gushing waterfalls, sharp gorges, dense forests and diverse wildlife make this an exotic travel choice.
Nagaland uses its culture and heritage to attract tourists. The tourist village in Touphema is set in a rustic environment with all the modern amenities. Exercise by hiking in Dzukou Valley, or browse the exquisite collection of shawls and handicrafts in local markets. Buy some, if it’s in your budget!
Most of the time, Tripura is ignored by most tourists. It has some historical buildings like Ujjanta Palace and Neermahal Palace. The Jampai hills and the Rose Valley Park are perfect places for nature lovers to revel in the beauty of the world.
If you are going to see the north-east, go visit all seven sisters.
