Meghalaya (A Budget Friendly Tour)

Everything went according to the agreed plan, so I have nothing to complain about. Sometimes the driving was too long for a single day, it would be nicer if the tour included moving to hotels closer to the destinations, which would allow for more time to visit other places. I went during March, which meant that waterfalls had minimum to no water, so if you are interested in that, I would suggest a different season. My suggestion to the tour operator would be to add tours for Meghalaya that include more physical activities, like the bamboo trek, which can appeal to younger people. Some of the activities were too simple and not really worth hours of driving. Thank you for organising my trip and answering all my queries!

We waited for this trip for a long time. Actually we reserved this trip before pandemic and we were suppose to arrive 21st March 2020.But unfortunately we could not come and we were worried about our deposit.Hemender was ready to return our deposit but agreed on a mutual agreement to hold this tour in the future. It almost took 3 years to come and explore the wildlife of North East India.During the 3 Years, Hemender was in regular touch and keep remining that your deposit is safe as well as your Tour is on hold. After the tour, I was amazed to see tigers,wild dogs and other wild animals.I am really happy after this tour and certainly I would recommend about Hemender and his company.

FAQs for Northeast tour packages

1.In which month should you visit the North East?

This depends on the part of the North East you plan to visit. If you want to go to Meghalaya, try to arrange a package between October and April. Again for Assam, November to March is the best time. If your North East tour package is focused on Arunachal Pradesh, October to April is ideal.

2.How to plan the best Northeast trip?

North East is a vast place. You can only complete part of the North East in a single trip. You’ll have to arrange for separate tour packages. If you plan to visit during the summers, try going to Sikkim, Tawang, Nagaland and Meghalaya. Again in the winter visiting Arunachal Pradesh is a better option. You can also add Assam and Manipal to the list for winter tour packages. Cherrapunji is famous for its monsoon vibes. Hence you can plan to visit the same during the monsoons.

3.Do I Need a Permit to Visit the Northeast?

Out of the 7 North East states, you’ll need inner-line permits to visit Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram. You can either get it online or ask the Guwahati airport to help you with the same.

4. What is the weather condition in the North East?

The weather conditions are highly unpredictable. In winter, you’ll experience high snowfall in the Tawang region again in Meghalaya. Although the temperatures are high, you’ll certainly not experience any snowfall. The regions do not exhibit high summers.

5. Is Northeast a safe place to visit?

Ensure you get the permits, contact a local tour operator and follow the guidelines while in any of the North East states. Under such circumstances, visiting the North East is safe.

6. What are the major cuisines of the Northeast?

Some famous signature dishes of the North East are Thupka, Bamboo shoot fry, momos, Grilled shrimp, Jadoh, Pitha, Smoked pork curry and Bhangui. Make sure you try them when you visit the palace.

7. What are the family-friendly places of the North East?

If you’re planning a family trip, you should avoid the off-beat destinations as most portions of the North East are rugged and have high terrains. Gangtok, Shillong and Sikkim are soulful places for family relaxation.

8. What can you buy as a souvenir during the North East tour?

Assam silk is a must if you visit Assam. If you’re planning a trip to Darjeeling, Sikkim, and Guwahati, buy ample tea. You can also try bamboo handicrafts from Meghalaya and Nagaland.

Q. Which city is the gateway to Northeast India and how to reach it? A. Ahead of shortlisting one of the North East packages you need to first figure out your travels and how you would reach your destination. Guwahati in Assam is the gateway to the Northeast and there are direct flights from Delhi and all the other metros of the country to Guwahati. You have airlines like GoFirst, SpiceJet, national carrier Air India, Vistara, IndiGo and AirAsia with direct flights from New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport to Guwahati’s Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport taking approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. You can also get flights from Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Bhubaneswar, Patna and Hyderabad directly to Guwahati, with most major airlines servicing the route. Another way to arrive in the Northeast in case destinations like Sikkim or Dajeeling is on your mind is by taking a flight to the Bagdogra Airport. Located in Siliguri in West Bengal, Bagdogra serves as a gateway to Gangtok, Mirik, Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Kurseong. Airlines like AirAsia, Air India, Druk Air, GoFirst, IndiGo, SpiceJet and Vistara have direct flights to Bagdogra from Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai, Paro, Bangkok, Guwahati, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Dibrugarh. Q. What are the places to be visited in Northeast India? A. As you go through North East tour packages ensure that it encompasses all the major destinations in the region. A holiday in the northeast is incomplete without rounding up Guwahati, Kaziranga National Park, Majuli, Shillong, Cherrapunji, Mawlynnong, Kohima, Imphal, Loktak Lake to name a few. The destinations you cover would depend on the length of your stay. You could stay a few days in a tea estate in Darjeeling and two nights further in Gangtok. Other ideas are to split your stay between Gangtok, Darjeeling and Pelling, or Gangtok, Pelling and Namchi. Clubbing a stay at Darjeeling, Kurseong and Kalimpong is also a great idea. A tea trail in Assam would cover Kaziranga and Jorhat where you can enjoy a wildlife safari as well as tea garden stay in Jorhat. For a longish stay encompassing Darjeeling, you can plan a holiday around Gangtok, Lachung, Pelling and Darjeeling. Q. What are some of the best wildlife experiences in Northeast India? A. If you are about to finalise one of the North East holiday packages and are a wildlife lover, make sure your holiday incorporates trips to some of its most incredible national parks. Arrive in Assam for a look at the one-horned rhinoceros, the state animal. The best place to view them in their natural habitat is at the Pobitora National Park, Kaziranga National Park and Manas National Park. You can go on an elephant-back or jeep safari and spot them in the wild grazing. While the parks offer ideal grassland and wetland habitat for the Indian rhinoceros, they are also teeming with an array of other wildlife that includes birds, big cats and reptiles. On a safari in either of the parks you can spot the wild water buffalo, Asiatic elephant, royal Bengal tiger, swamp deer, which together with the one-horned rhino make up the Big Five of Kaziranga. Outside of that there are several other species of big cats, leopards, pangolin, sloth bear, badger, flying squirrel, golden jackal and a variety of avian species such as open-bill stork, white-rumped vulture and the great Indian hornbill to name a few. Q. Is it safe to travel to North East India? A. With the growing tourism in the North East more visitors are travelling to this lesser-explored part of India. While all states welcome tourists, however, certain parts of Nagaland and Manipur should be avoided due to insurgency situations. It will be wise to take the advice of local experts on the places to avoid and on current situations. Also, book your North East tour package with a reliable tour operator that knows the area well. Q. Which northeastern states require a visitor’s permit? A. Indian tourists will require Inner Line Permit (ILP) permit to visit Nagaland, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and certain areas of Sikkim. Tourist ILP is valid for seven days and can be extended. Visitors from overseas need to get either a Restricted Area Permit or Protected Area Permit or both to enter Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Nagaland and Manipur. Also, foreign visitors to Manipur, Mizoram and Nagaland must get themselves registered at the Foreigner Registration Office within 24 hours of arrival. The easiest way to get these permits is through travel agents, alternatively you can apply online or visit the local authorities of the respective states with offices in different cities of the country. Q. Are there vegetarian restaurants easily available in the North East? A. Contrary to popular belief, vegetarian food is found all across North East India. Although people there love meat and fish, but they equally love their vegetarian meals. Their veg or non-veg dishes are as diverse as the rest of the country. In bigger places like Guwahati, Shillong, Darjeeling and Gangtok, you will easily find good vegetarian and even Jain food restaurants. At good hotels, you can always request for a vegetarian meal. Try an Assamese thali prepared using ‘khar’ - a local alkaline-based delicacy prepared from banana leaves and banana trunks; taste the vegetarian version of Jadoh in Shillong; go for rice porridge in Mizoram or the millet porridge called zan in Arunachal Pradesh; indulge in a sweet dish of Tripura called Awan Bangwi - a rice cake dish, which is a melange of sweet spicy and earthy flavours. Q. Are good hotels available in the North East? A. As tourism infrastructure is gradually growing in the North East there is still a lack in quality and choice when searching for an accommodation. Consult with a good tour operator as they can always guide you with the best places to stay. Popular destinations such as Assam, Meghalaya, Sikkim and Darjeeling have variety of options from luxury to basic. Q. How to pack for my North East trip? A. The states of Sikkim, Nagaland and Meghalaya gets very cold during winters due to its higher altitude; the weather at these places are pleasant during summers. Weather in Assam is tropical monsoon rainforest type with heavy rainfall and humidity during monsoon and warm summers and mild winters. Q. What languages are spoken in the northeastern part of India? A. Every state in the North East India has a native language and diverse sub-dialects spoken by different tribes. As a tourist you can get around easily in Hindi and English. Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Meghalaya and Nagaland have English as their official language. Q. Is North East India a family-friendly destination? A. North East mostly consists of mountainous and rugged terrains and travelling in these areas can be tiresome for tourists and especially for young travellers. Having said that, attractions like Kaziranga National Park, and places like Darjeeling, Gangtok, Shillong are popular with families. With good air connectivity you can easily reach these destinations from major Indian cities for a relaxed and fun family vacation. Q. How is the phone and internet connectivity in North East India? A. Mobile internet connections are available in most parts, but in many remote areas and hilly terrains the connectivity can be poor. Internet connectivity is good in most places, and in case of unavailability you can always look for the nearest internet cafes available in almost all small towns. Q. How many days are required for a comprehensive North East tour? A. It depends on the number of states or destinations you would like to include and the number of days you are willing to spend on your tour. As North East combines eight states, it will take at least 10-15 days to fully explore the important tourist attractions. A North East tour itinerary could also include Darjeeling and Kalimpong in West Bengal. Q. What souvenirs should I bring from North East India? A. When in Assam, get fine Assam silk, tea leaves and the traditional jaapi hat, which make a great wall decor. Carry bamboo baskets from Meghalaya or the reed mats from Manipur. The Naga shawl from Nagaland is a much sought-after memento while Tripura is known for its unique handloom. You will love the tribal jewellery and the bamboo products from Arunachal Pradesh. You can even get some pickles for home. You will find shops and roadside vendors selling different types of pickles ranging from bamboo shoots to variety of local chilli.

About north east.

Originally a group of seven north-east states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura, the seven sisters welcomed their new brother, Sikkim, in 1975. Surrounded almost exclusively by India’s international neighbours, the northeast has developed a unique culture of its own that reflects the region’s historical and geographical diversity. The hardy exterior of the rocky terrain hides a warm heart that welcomes visitors with genuine warmth. People open their hearts, and often their houses, to make you feel welcome in their homeland. They are fiercely proud of their culture and are protective of their way of life.

Here you can experience the colonial heritage in all its splendour and connect with the exciting mystic of a land that still hides many secrets. Here you will find Asia’s cleanest village and bridges moulded out of living roots. Feel the adrenaline rush as you encounter a Rhino in the wild and calm your cantering heart at the monasteries that dot the mountains like some jewels strewn on an emerald robe. The magic of Darjeeling and the transcendent beauty of Meghalaya eagerly await to be experienced. The people here celebrate their festivals with songs and dances and share their culture with their food. If you’re ready to experience all this and more, simply book yourself a Thomas Cook India ’s North East tour and enjoy your northeastern sojourn.

Best Time to Visit North East

November to April is the best time to visit the northeast  due to the dry weather. When the monsoon rolls in, the roads become impassable and some of the regions like Kaziranga of Assam often experience flooding. The monsoon usually lasts between July to September. Summer is also a good time to visit the northeast if you don’t mind the warm temperatures between 30°C to 36°C. If you consider the northeast as a whole the temperatures vary wildly due to its diverse terrain. The mountains are generally cooler than the plains.

But winter and early summer showcase the best of whatever the northeast has to offer. You are in for a sensory treat, especially if you visit immediately after the monsoon ends. The bright and varying shades of green soothe the senses even as the replenished valleys hide in the mists of monsoon’s memories. The mountains rise out of the mist to add drama to the landscape that would seem incomplete without the soaring peaks. Though it gets bitterly cold in some places, it rarely snows, if ever.

The Kaziranga National Park  teems with abundance and the atmosphere within the park is charged with anticipation. Summer opens a range of outdoor activities that includes trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and rock climbing. You may have to share your holidays with the usual tourist crowds during this time, but you will find all the attractions and places of interest open for visitors.

How to Reach North East

You can visit the northeast by road, rail and air from all the major cities of India. But Kolkata seems to be the ideal starting point for the northeast by air. From Kolkata, you can get direct flights to Assam, Manipur, Nagaland and Tripura with regular frequency. Apart from Kolkata, Guwahati’s LokpriyaGopinathBordoloi International Airport is also well connected to many of the major cities around India such as Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad. Naharlagun in Arunachal Pradesh and Aizawl in Mizoram enjoy aerial connectivity through helicopter services.

If you prefer to take a train into the northeast, Kolkata again proves to be the hub of connectivity. It has the largest number of trains travelling to the eight northeastern states than any other major city in India. Assam and Arunachal Pradesh lead the others in rail connectivity while Mizoram and Tripura do not even have a railway network. New Jalpaiguri is the closest railway station to Mizoram and Kumarghat is the nearest one for Tripura. However, do note that since the railway network in the northeast is not electrified, trains take longer than usual to reach their destinations.

By far, the road seems to offer the best connectivity to get around the northeast. West Bengal has several buses, government as well as private, running regularly to all the states in the northeast. National Freeways 31, 37, 38 and 40 link Assam with the rest of the country. A private taxi is the most convenient, but the more expensive mode of travel by road.

Places to visit in North East

Collectively, the northeast seems like a vast area to explore. Surely it cannot be all done in one trip. The sheer variety of landscapes, experiences and even food means that you will have to pick and choose and plan your itinerary carefully. Here are some places that you must not miss on your trip to the northeast.

Gangtok, Sikkim

Hands down, one of the most iconic adventure destinations, Gangtok is the highlight of your northeast tour. Hogging the lion’s share of nature’s bounty, Gangtok is a trekker’s paradise. The trek to Kanchenjunga  is a special undertaking that demands utmost commitment. The Tsomgo Lake is a holy place that reflects the surrounding landscape and the spirituality infused within. Don’t miss the Yak Safari and sipping for souvenirs at M. G. Road. Spend some time at the Rumtek Monastery and let the tranquillity  reach deep within your being. Conquer the climb at Ganesh Tok and check out the wild beauty of Nathu La Pass.

The ‘Tea Basket of India’ is blessed with a unique charm that inspires the fiercest pride among its citizens. Apart from its famous hillsides hosting acres and acres of tea plantations, Assam  is also known as the home of the Kaziranga National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a critical ecological hotspot that is home to some rare species of animals like the One-horned Rhinoceros and the Ganges Dolphins. Get a taste of eco-tourism at Majuli to go shopping in Jorhat. Take a serene cruise over the Brahmaputra and pay your respects at the Kamakhya Temple. Do not miss a piping hot cup of tea on a plantation visit.

One of the relatively unknown places of the North East, Manipur  is mostly known for its most famous export, the Bhut Jolokia(Ghost Pepper). This little jewel in the heart of the North East enjoys its festivals so much that it is known as the land of festivals. You will be awed by its culture, handicrafts and handlooms, indigenous games, dances and martial arts. Get your shopping done at the Khwairamband Bazaar, a market run wholly by women. Explore the ancient Andro Village and enjoy the thrill of a chariot ride in Moreh. Boating in Loktak Lake is also a popular pastime as is the theatre.

The ‘Abode of the Clouds’ is shrouded in clouds through most of the year giving it a perpetual air of mystery. Meghalaya  is a treasure trove of secrets that are just gaining the attention of the world. For starters, it is home to Mawlynnong, the cleanest village in Asia. Its other claims to fame are the bridges in Cherrapunji is woven out of living roots, its spectacular waterfalls and some of the longest caves in Asia. Some of the must-visit attractions here include the Balpakram National Park, Umiam Lake and Laitlum Canyon. Do not miss trekking on David Scott Trail, camping in the Khasi Hills and rafting in the Barapani Lake.

The ‘Land of the Hill People’ is a veritable haven of natural beauty that will slake your wanderlust with the choicest morsels. Admire the sweeping panoramas at Palak Lake and indulge the adventurer within with mountain biking in the Hmuifang Hills. The Blue Mountain National Park is an excellent trekking territory while the Murlen National Park is a nature lover’s paradise. Enjoy the beauty of Vantawng Falls and track big cats at the DampaTiger Reserve when on your North East Trip.

The home of the fierce warriors, the nagas, Nagaland  will surprise you with its love of celebrations and festivals. In fact, Nagaland is known for its vibrant, colourful festivals that celebrate its culture and traditions. The Hornbill The Festival of Nagaland is particularly well known. The Kohima Museum and Kachari Ruins are the best chroniclers of the region’s history. Visit the Touphema village to catch the dance performances. Go trekking in the Dzukou Valley and enjoy the safari at the Intanki Wildlife Sanctuary. Challenge yourself with a hike to the Japfu Peak or simply sit back and test your patience with birdwatching in Khonoma.

Another unknown gem of the northeast, Tripura  has the holy trifecta of a memorable holiday; art, history and nature. Sharing the natural bounty with its sisters, Tripura carries its beauty with aplomb. The picturesque trek to Jampui Hills, the teeming Rowa Wildlife Sanctuary and the Trishna Wildlife Sanctuary showcase the verdant beauty of the state quite gracefully. The same grace and elegance can be seen in the architecture of the Royal Ujjayanta Palace which will transport you back in time. The Tripura Government Museum is another time capsule that is preserving the region’s history for posterity.

Arunachal Pradesh

The ‘Land of the Dawn-lit Mountains’ lives up to its name with its stark beauty accentuated by the mountains. One of the better-known jewels of the northeast, Arunachal Pradesh is also the largest state of the group. The wide-open vistas with the backdrop of snow-capped mountains in the distance are the signature view of this blessed land. It also holds the distinction of being the birthplace of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and housing the largest Buddhist monastery in India. The Ziro Music Festival is one of the highlights of Arunachal Pradesh as is the ParasuramKund.

What to Eat in North East

With so many diverse cultures calling the northeast their home, the region boasts a wide culinary palette that will colour your taste buds with new and exciting flavours. Here are our picks of the food that you should try on your vacation to the northeast.

Khar - Ubiquitous Delicacy

This Assamese dish uses beaten pulses, raw papaya and red rice as a base to concoct a much-loved delicacy that is a staple of almost every meal.

Galho - Familiar Food

Akin to the khichdi that we all love, Galho also adds meat to the mix to give it that northeast twist. The smoked meat adds texture to the dish while axone (fermented soybean) adds extra zing.

Iromba - Fishy Favourite

This star of Manipuri cuisine counts fermented fish as one of the ingredients to liven up a dish that is made up of mashed potatoes, yams, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, fresh greens and red hot chillies. Iromba has a strong and pungent taste with a simple flavour profile.

Kappa - Unusual Snacks

Kappa is the perfect street food to be had on the go while exploring the streets of Meghalaya. A piping hot bowl of Kappa will warm you in the chilly weather of Meghalaya. Mostly made using chicken and fresh garden herbs, chicken entrails are one unusual ingredient that sets this one apart from a regular chicken soup, book your northeast holiday from Thomas Cook India now!

ArsaBuhchiar - Savoury Goodness

Coming from Mizoram, ArsaBuhchiar is a savoury rice porridge that is served with herbs and a side of chicken. The blend of local spices, with the hearty rice base, makes this dish a heavy snack to be enjoyed on cold, rainy afternoons. There’s another variation of this porridge, Sanpiau, that includes an array of spices but excludes the chicken.

Things to Do in North East

Your holiday in the northeast will be underscored by a series of adventures that will give you an adrenaline rush and get your heart beating. Here are some much-recommended things that you should try in the northeast tour.

The crisp mountain air braces you for the long treks that can last for hours if not days. Make sure you take the time to acclimate yourself to the altitude before heading off.

River Rafting at Kalimpong

The entire northeast is crisscrossed by  rivers that offer many opportunities to explore the land from a different perspective. Rafting is not only an adventure, but it is also a great way to check out the sights. A rafting trip can save you hours of walking on a sightseeing tour.

Rock Climbing in Cherrapunji

The rugged terrain of the northeast is a veritable amusement park for adventure seekers. Cherrapunji  offers a wonderful opportunity for those who revel in the exciting sport of rock climbing. One of the wettest places on earth, Cherrapunji challenges the best in the sport, but also supports and encourages the first-timers with gentle persuasion.

Camp Overnight on the Khasi Hills

The best part of overnight camping in the northeast is the uninterrupted views of a spectacular starlit sky that really shines in the absence of the usual light pollution. Include a camping trip when you book your northeast holiday from Thomas Cook India and get ready for the best camping trip under the stars.

Find Solace at Tawang Monastery

The Tawang Monastery is an island of peace even in the tranquil environs of Tawang. Take some time for introspection and try to find your equilibrium surrounded by spirituality. If you’re visiting at the right time, you can catch a live performance of Cham, the traditional dance performed by the monastery’s monks. Intricate in nature and graceful in execution, it is one performance you simply must not miss.

15 days in North East India | A Travel Guide and Itinerary

15 days in North East India | A Travel Guide and Itinerary

Jack Kerouac in his book On the Road , says, “There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” Traversing through majestic mountains and lustrous valleys in the middle of nowhere while admiring the flawless creations of nature seems like an idea, too good to be real for now. But it is wise enough to find respite from mundane schedules by making a virtual tour of destinations in your bucket list and plan for future travel.

north east tour india

North East India is known to be in the bucket list of many discerning travelers. The alluring beauty of nature and rich culture intertwine to make the North East a top pick for many. The eight states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim constitute the North East region in India.

The vas t region with countless idyllic travel destinations requires you to spend months there to be able to explore the region well but in reality, this is not something everyone can possibly do. But setting aside 15 days in a year to head to the rather unexplored part of India is something doable. Hence, I am compiling this 15-Day Travel Itinerary comprising of 3 states in the North East – Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.

If you are someone who had always wished to wander through the winding roads in the North East and jump into the pools of hidden waterfalls but never found a perfect itinerary to make the best out of your available time, this itinerary is for you. Go ahead to read and plan your next trip to the North East.

A detailed 15-day Travel Itinerary for North East

Day 1 : Guwahati to Shillong

To start your journey in the North East, you’d have to fly to Guwahati in Assam, which serves as the base for almost all routes.

  • Hire a vehicle from Guwahati Airport or Guwahati Railway Station to Shillong. It would ideally cost you about INR 2000 for a drop off at Police Bazar, Shillong or your Hotel.
  • You can also hop onto a shared sumo/taxi from the airport or railway station which would cost about INR 300. If you do not find shared vehicles there, you can head to Paltan Bazar in Guwahati from where you’d easily find shared vehicles for Shillong.
  • You will also find buses for Shillong from ISBT, Beltola in Guwahati.
  • The journey is approximately 3 hours long.

If you manage to reach Shillong by afternoon, you can easily take a short tour of the city. Hire a local cab to visit Elephant Falls and Shillong Peak, which are within 15 kms distance from the central part of the city. Ward’s Lake is right in the heart of the city and you may stop by to spend some quiet time by the lake.

north east tour india

In the evening, take a stroll in the Police Bazar area and check out the amazing cafes and restaurants in the area.

Day 2 : Shillong to Cherrapunjee

  • Private cabs can be booked from the main market area, known as Police Bazar.
  • There are shared vehicles available too which are available from Bara Bazar Area . Usually these are Tata Sumos or Altos that ply between Shillong and Cherrapunjee. Cherrapunjee and Sohra are the same places. Do not get confused if the taxi drivers are calling out for passengers for Sohra.
  • It takes about 2 hours to travel the distance of 52 kms.

Hotels : Coniferous Resort | Polo Orchid Resort | Sulawado Resort

Things to do in Cherrapunjee

Make sure you start early from Shillong so that you may reach Cherrapunjee by first half of the day. You may hire a local cab to take you around the famous spots in Cherrapunjee. Here’s a list of things you can do at Cherrapunjee:

Visit the tallest plunge waterfall in India, Nohkalikai Falls , which has a height of 350 metres. There is an entry gate from where you can reach the mouth of the waterfall by following the trail. The view point of the waterfall is about 4-8 kms from Cherrapunjee, depending on where you start your journey from.

north east tour india

Take a tour of Mawsmai Caves , located about 6 kms away from Cherrapunjee. The cave is made of limestone and is home to unique flora and fauna. Once you enter the cave, you are only allowed to walk up till 150 metres inside the cave and the rest of the cave is not open for visitors.

Arwah Caves is a hidden gem in Cherrapunjee. This cave does not have well demarcated trails and thus, it is advisable to take a guide along with you. You need to take a detour from the main road and cover a muddy patch of road to reach Arwah Cave. Before you reach the entrance of the cave, you’d find a beautiful bridge. You would spot limestones and fossils inside the cave. A visit to Arwah Cave would be an adventurous activity. But considering the fact that you only have one day to visit all these places, you might have to pick one between Mawsmai and Arwah Caves as they are located in the extreme opposite locations outside Cherrapunjee.

Day 3 : Cherrapunjee – Tyrna – Nongriat – Tyrna

Start your day early as you have to trek the most talked about Living Root bridge of Meghalaya in Nongriat on this day. 

  • Take a private taxi from Cherrapunjee to drop you at Tyrna , the starting point of the trek.
  • It would cost you about INR 500 or a little more for this distance.
  • From Tyrna Village , your downward hike for Nongriat starts .
  • It is advisable to take a porter if you have a heavy rucksack. A porter would charge INR 500 a day.
  • It usually takes about 2 hours for the downward hike. But you may finish the hike faster depending on your speed.

After crossing many suspension bridges and root bridges along the forest trail, you’d reach one of the major highlights of Meghalaya, the Double Decker Living Root Bridge. Only when you see the marvelous creation, you’d know how beautiful and powerful nature can be, if utilised well. Sit by the natural pool and soak in all the energy of the forest.

north east tour india

You can also ask your guide to take you to the Rainbow Waterfall , located a short hike away from Nongriat village. There are also a number of gorgeous natural pools which are untraceable and only known by the locals. If time permits, pay a visit to these naturals pools to make your day even more exciting.

By afternoon, start your upward hike back to Tyrna. The upward hike may take a longer time. Reach back to the starting point and stay at Tyrna, to get an experience of the rural side of Meghalaya.

Delight Homestay | Royal View Resort

Day 4 : Tyrna to Shillong

On the fourth day of your trip, head back to Shillong and spend a day in the Scotland of the East.

  • Travel to Cherrapunjee from Tyrna in a reserved cab , following the same route.
  • From Cherrapunjee, you can hire a vehicle for Shillong or take a shared vehicle .

Upon reaching Shillong, spend the day to explore the famous spots of the city if you had missed them on the day of your arrival. 

Day 5 : Shillong – Tezpur – Kaziranga

This will be a long day on the roads as you head back to Assam from Shillong. To proceed with your journey to the North East, you’d need to head to Tezpur in Assam from where you will further head to Kaziranga National Park.

  • The first and the most comfortable way to travel to Tezpur from Assam is to reserve a vehicle. But it will cost you a whopping INR 5000-6000. If you are traveling in a group and would not want to compromise on comfort, you may choose this option.
  • There are bus services between these two places. The buses would take about 7 hours to cover the distance and the schedule can be checked and tickets can be booked on the Assam State Transport Corporation ‘s website .

Tezpur to Kaziranga is a 40 kms journey that takes about 1.5 hours. It’s best that you move to Kaziranga from Tezpur and spend the night there because the safaris start very early in the morning. You need to spend a night in a nearby homestay or resort in order to make it to the morning safaris, which are most preferred. Staying in a cottage or homestay in Kaziranga will also give you a taste of the Assamese culture and daily life.

  • You will find Assam State Transport Corporation Buses from Tezpur to go to Kaziranga. 
  • You can also reserve a cab to drop you off till your accommodation this being a short distance. It will make your travel easier.

You can put up in the cottages that are run by the Kaziranga National Park. But do note that they are more on the expensive side for solo travellers. Works fine if you are in a group.

You can also opt to stay in a cottage near the National Park, which are more budget friendly. Some options are listed here:

Dhanshree Resort |   Kaziranga Florican Lodge | Kaziranga Resort

End the day and get some good sleep as you reach your destination as the day starts very early the next day.

Day 6 : Excursion to Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga National Park, well known across the country for being home to the one-horned rhino is one of the Best National Parks of India. Not only the one-horned rhino, but you can also spot Royal Bengal tigers, swamp deer, wild water buffaloes and Asian elephants in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spread over 430 square kilometers, Kaziranga National Park houses unique flora and fauna. 

north east tour india

There are two ways you can take a tour around in this place. The first is an Elephant Safari and the other is a Jeep Safari. An Elephant Safari starts as early as 5:30am in the morning and you need to book them a day prior to when you want to go for the safari. The slots for Indians are way too less than the number of slots reserved for foreigners. Also, not many people personally prefer Elephant Safaris on grounds of morality. But even if you want to, you may not get a chance at this because of the one day prior booking policy.

The best way to explore the Kaziranga National Park is to opt for a Jeep Safari which has many slots, even in the afternoons. Please note that Kaziranga National Park is only open during the months of November to April so plan your travel accordingly  if you don’t want to be disappointed at the last moment.

  • The tickets can be booked from the counter on the same day on first come first served basis.
  • The Safaris are about 2 hours long. You can check the schedule of the Jeep Safaris beforehand.
  • You cannot book a seat but will have to book the entire Jeep and pay an extra amount for cameras. If you are traveling solo, the best is to wait and join another group and split the cost.
  • An entire Safari costs between INR 1550-2750. There are different price ranges for different circuits. For cameras, you need to pay INR 100 extra per camera; INR 200 for foreigners.
  • From your stay, you will need a vehicle to drop you at the starting point of the Safari. You can ask your hosts to arrange for this and they’d be glad to help you out.

If you take a morning safari, you will have ample time to head to the Kaziranga National Orchid and Biodiversity Park . The biggest Orchid park in the North East belt in India, this park hosts 500 varieties of wild orchids, 132 species of fruits and vegetables, various species of bamboo, cane and other plants.

After a tour of the Orchid park, you can head back to Tezpur from Kaziranga and spend the night in Tezpur.

Day 7 : Tezpur to Dirang

Dirang is a picture perfect town in West Kameng District in Arunachal Pradesh, often chosen as a transit point by traveler. Dirang is quite unexplored till this point of time probably because its counterpart, Bomdila is known more in the travellers circuit. Surrounded by tall mountains, beautiful monasteries and crystal clear river waters, a stop at Dirang would be the best way to start your trip to Arunachal Pradesh.

  • There won’t be shared cabs specifically  meant for Dirang but you can hop onto one going to Tawang and get down at Dirang.
  • Shared Sumos are found at ASTC bus stand in Tezpur and they leave around 6am. Check for the Tata Sumo Counter for Tawang as you reach there. Make sure you reach well ahead of time to find yourself the best seats, else you will end up stuck at the last row with no legroom for this long journey.
  • The shared Sumo fair for Tawang from Tezpur is usually INR 750 per person . Dirang would cost you lesser than that. But post pandemic, the costs are expected to go higher.
  • A reserved vehicle from Tezpur to Dirang would cost somewhere around INR 8000 . If you are in a group, you may opt for this as you won’t be compromising on comfort.
  • The distance is about 200 kms and it takes around 6 hours to cover.

After having completed a long and bumpy ride, take rest in your hotel/homestay.

Day 8 : Explore Dirang

Even though Dirang has gained popularity only among travelers only in the recent years, there is a lot to explore in this quaint village. One day is never enough to explore the place to the fullest. Still, something is better than nothing so you can utilise the day to the fullest and go around and breathe the fresh air of this surreal destination, your first stop in Arunachal Pradesh.

Things to do in Dirang

Visit Dirang Dzong located on the banks of Dirang Chu (river), an outstanding remnant of the rich cultural history of Arunachal Pradesh. It is a small village with a few houses that are more than 500 years old. Dirang Dzong also has a prison which dates back to 9th century. Walk through the houses and alleys and interact with the locals to know more about the ancient architecture, traditions, art and culture. It is located about 3-4 kms from the main town of Dirang. You can take a local cab but the distance is walkable if you are comfortable walking.

Originally known as the Thupsung Dhargye monastery, Dirang Monastery is a rather new monastery and recently renovated. The monastery is surrounded by manicured gardens and the view from here is serene. Spend an hour at this place to experience tranquility. It is located right in the heart of Dirang.

There is no better way to explore a place than to explore the place on foot. Walk around the town, the river banks and drink tea with the locals. You will know a lot more about the history and culture than what the internet tells you about a place.

Day 9 : Dirang to Tawang

  • The shared sumos start very early in the morning. Talk to your hotel/homestay management to find out if you can book a seat the previous way. There is no straightjacket formula to traveling in public transports in the North East.
  • The shared sumos would cost around INR 450 from Dirang to Tawang and travel time would be around 6 hours. 
  • You can also join other groups if they are booking a private vehicle and share the expenses.
  • Ask the driver to stop at Sela Lake for tea. That way you get a glimpse of the splendid Sela Lake.

Spend the evening strolling around the town of Tawang or head to Dharma Coffee House for a cup of hot chocolate.

Day 10 : Explore Tawang

To explore the various places in Tawang, the only option is to book a local cab for sightseeing. If you are traveling solo, you would probably have to join another group. But there is no issue if you are in a group. In the local taxi stand, you will find local drivers who conduct these Bum La Pass, Sangetsar Lake, P T Tso Lake sightseeing trips. You will need a permit from the Office of the Deputy Commissioner in Tawang District to visit Bum La Pass . But not to worry, the driver can arrange that for you easily. Make sure you make this arrangement right on the day you arrive. A full day trip will cost you between INR 5000-6000.

  • The fare for a seat in a shared vehicle is around INR 600.

Holiday Hills | Hotel Tashi Den | Doe-Gu-Khil Guest House

Day 12 : Explore Bomdila

Bomdila is another transit point apart from Dirang, between Tezpur and Tawang. Bomdila is known more and opted by the travelers because of its easy accessibility with other places. Situated amidst lofty mountains and home to beautiful monasteries, Bomdila truly deserves the attention of the travelers. There are many things you can do in this quaint town. Some of the places of interest are listed here.

  • Head to the highest view point of Bomdila, RR Hill to witness a unparalelled views of Bhutan and Tibet.

Day 13 : Bomdila – Tezpur – Guwahati

  • There are two possible ways to reach Guwahati.
  • You will find direct buses that go to Guwahati but they are extremely long and tiring. A 15 hours of journey through the bumpy roads would be no less than a pain. But you may still opt for this if you are used to traveling in buses.

After a long day of travel, retreat to sleep early as you approach the last day of your trip.

Though the itinerary starts from Guwahati, you technically do not get to spend a day in Guwahati, often considered a gateway and junction to travel to all other destinations in the North East region. It is thus advisable to dedicate a leisurely day to explore the city at your own pace. There would be no checklists to follow or rush to visit all possible points. Just take a walk, spend the afternoon at a cafe or engage in some shopping at Fancy Bazaar or The Maati Centre .

Over the years, we have actively worked towards facilitating experiential travel which is Active, Interactive and Authentic in its truest form. Our tours of Northeast India include Cycling, Treks & Walks, Motorcycle & Overland, Multi-Activity, Family Adventures, Wildlife, Culture and Youth travel , all of which have local history, culture, interactions and the environment as their centerpiece.

The region at a glance

This little known corner of the Indian Subcontinent sharing international borders with Bhutan, Tibet, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh is connected to mainland India by a small sliver of land in the state of West Bengal popularly known as the Chickens neck. Consisting of Eight states this region is formed like a gigantic basin with the Brahmaputra and Barak valleys taking center stage.The northern border with Tibet and China is barricaded by the giant east Himalayan landmass, in the east the densely forested Patkai bum and Naga Patkai ranges bordering Burma take over running south all the way to Chaifil Tlang and Uiphum Tlang ranges in Mizoram (which further runs off east to the Chin hills and Arakan Yoma of Burma).In the south the Jaintia, Khasi and Garo Hills of Meghalaya bordering the rich plains of Bangladesh completes the formation.This region is incidentally the closest that the Himalayan mountain range gets to the coast. This geographical factor added to the fact that this region also receives some of the highest rainfall in the planet has resulted in the one of the greatest diversity in flora and fauna and hence also a diverse mix of people.

The Region

Perhaps the same reason that makes this region so rich in its natural diversity also makes it the most Ethnic, Linguistic and Cultural diverse region in the Indian sub-continent. For example, the state of Arunachal Pradesh itself has over 26 major tribes with over 100 sub-tribes and clans speaking some 50 odd dialects. These tribes provide a cultural bridge between India and south East Asia, China, Inner Asia and Burma by ethnic and linguistic angles, as most of these tribes migrated here from the North and the East over the centuries.These eight states in themselves constitute a single linguistic region with about 220 languages in three different language groups (Indo-Aryan, Sino-Tibetan and Austric).The earliest recorded history can be traced back only to the Ahom kings (16thAD) who ruled the Brahmaputra valley. Unlike the rest of India, majority here bear Mongoloid features.

The People

The Environment

This region has a predominantly humid sub-tropical climate with hot, humid summers, severe monsoons and fairly mild winters. Along with the west coast of India, it has some of the Indian sub-continent’s last remaining rain forests which support’s diverse flora and fauna and several endemic species. It has been pooled under the Eastern Himalayan and the Indo-Burmese Biodiversity hot spots. The close proximity of the High Himalayas to the coast has created a compact stretch of land with a multitude of vegetation. If we take a closer look, we see that the Ecology of the region varies from Alpine Tundra in the northern regions to Tropical and Sub tropica Rainforests in the lower areas. The central river valleys support Grasslands and large wetland areas. This variety in Eco-systems has created a heaven for bio-diversity. This region also boasts of the highest density of protected Wildlife Reserves in the country. Kaziranga, Manas, Nameri and Namdapha National Parks are some of the better known ones. It also has some of the highest densities of Tigers, Elephants and the Great one horned Rhinoceros, the only ape species found in India and the only Wildlife parks to have 5 felines’ species

An unconventional choice for a honeymoon but one of the best choices we have ever made! We were attracted to Arunachal Pradesh because of the adventure of visiting somewhere untouched, we were attracted by the wildlife tribes. Vasanth, Roheen and the team were the perfect hosts efficient at sorting the permits and when we arrived were immediately invited into their friends homes and hearing stories of tribal life this set the scene for the trip, it was like travelling with friends! With their network and expert knowledge of the area, we trusted their judgement and were delighted by the cycling routes (great mixture of terrain and scenery); the hikes arriving at Glow Lake was one of the most special moments, we have never found somewhere so remote, wild and beautiful before or since. We would highly highly recommend an adventure with North by North East for anyone looking for wilderness, beautiful scenery and immersion into a completely unique way of life with the energy and fun of cycling, hiking and most of travelling with a great, knowledgable and local team.

If you want to explore the far Northeast of India and getclose to the extremely diverse culture and nature, theseguys will take you there. Carrying the spirit of adventurein their heart, Roheen and his team offer a selection of highly attractive cycle and multi-sport escapes to the farthest points in Arunachal Pradesh – places where it’s very difficult for individually travelling tourists to reach. We did the Eastern Arunachal Pradesh Multi Activity Tour in one week (four days cycling, two days hiking) and were guided by Iho, one of the NbNE guides, who was an extremely supportive, attentive, and capable leader. We are relatively experienced travellers, used to go on our own, and were hesitant at first to follow an organised trip. But we realised that we would hardly have been able to get to the places we visited, let alone to cycle there (considering also the hassle with logistics). Parts of the tour were off motorable roads, crossing a river without a bridge and small villages in areas where it is hard to stock up on food, and we hiked through thick jungle where you have to go with a guide anyways. Accomodation was basic but having someone preparing delicious food for us even in the jungle was a great luxury that we enjoyed a lot. Don’t expect much more luxury, though. It’s all simple, but real. The places in Arunachal Pradesh are definitely off the beaten track. This makes encounters with local tribes people all the more authentic. The great service NbNE offers, is to take you there.

Highlights of the Seven Sisters: why Northeast India is the place to travel right now

Oct 10, 2019 • 9 min read

north east tour india

Of the countless pictures you’ve seen and travel tales you’ve heard of India , it’s unlikely many – if any – focused on its remote Northeast States . This triangular-shaped piece of land is wedged between China, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Myanmar, and consists of seven states, known collectively as the Seven Sisters. Long neglected by even the most intrepid of travellers because of their notoriously troubled past, the Sisters have slowly come of age, and may soon grow into India’s most sought-after travel destination.

Home to a kaleidoscope of cultures, religions and ethnicities, the region has endured a turbulent history (think tribal warfare, independence struggles and cross-border smuggling). However, much of the outright conflict has subsided – apart from the occasional peaceful protest – and, as a result, the Indian Government has recently relaxed most of the travel restrictions and permit requirements for foreigners, meaning the region’s pristine nature, diverse landscapes and unique tribal cultures are open to the world for the first time.

From Himalayan monasteries to rhino-filled national parks, here are seven of the highlights of India’s Northeast – just make sure you see them before everyone else does.

Aerial view of Loktak Lake, showing its green islands of vegetation which float on the lake's surface. The lake is backed by mountains in the distance.

Loktak Lake, Manipur

Manipur was considered the most dangerous of the seven states as its fierce independence movement and forested hills favoured by smugglers prolonged the region’s instability. However, the locals will repeatedly assure you those days are long gone, and foreigners are welcomed with eager hospitality.

Loktak Lake, one of the largest inland bodies of water in India, is one of the most memorable highlights of the Northeast States. Just an hour from Manipur’s capital, Imphal, the landform is known as the ‘floating lake’ due to the presence of phumdis , large masses of vegetation that float on the lake’s surface. One of these buoyant islands is so big it’s been granted national park status, set up to protect the endangered sangai deer, which at one time was thought to be extinct. The park has a couple of viewing platforms where rangers will help you locate the deer through binoculars. Alternatively, it’s possible to spend time out on the water in wooden boats with local fishermen (many of whom live on the phumdis), who can provide insights into traditional fishing methods and details about the lake’s 100 species of birds.

It’s possible to stay in a village homestay on the lake run by the local ecotourism committee. Alternatively, there are also accommodation options in Moirang, the largest nearby town.

The top of a mountain is filled with countless white buildings with gold roofs, all part of the Tawang monastery.

Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal Pradesh is the last frontier and eastern most state of India, sharing borders with Tibet, Bhutan and Myanmar. It’s the most precarious of the Seven Sisters, due to the heavily militarised nature of the area and the ongoing border dispute between China and India. For this reason, it’s one of only two states in the region – the other being Sikkim – where a Protected Area Permit is still required for foreigners. However, it can be easily arranged in Guwahati or Kolkata from government offices.

Arunachal is characterised by an impressive mountainous region that rises to the Greater Himalayas. Tucked inside these snow-capped peaks between Bhutan and Tibet , is the town of Tawang. This little-visited spot is home to the second largest Buddhist monastery in the world, spectacularly set on the edge of a slope at 3000m elevation. The monastery dates back to around the mid-17th century and is where the sixth Dalai Lama was born. It’s now home to around 300 monks and a treasure trove of Tibetan Buddhist relics, including rare manuscripts and thangka cotton paintings.

The real highlight, aside from the incredible scenery surrounding the monastery, is to spend time mulling around the peaceful, white-washed grounds, which are most atmospheric at sunrise when the monks perform their morning prayers, or puja , to the sound of beating drums.

A group of people from Assam perform a traditional dance show wearing colourful masks and outfits resembling Hindu deities.

Majuli Island, Assam

Assam is the largest state in the region and perhaps the most well-known thanks to its production of its namesake tea. It’s lesser-known tourism marvel is Majuli, the world’s largest river island marooned in the mighty Brahmaputra River.

The island is home to some of the most important temples and satras (cultural centres) of the neo-Vaishnavite sect of Hinduism, which is native to Assam. More than just complexes for prayer, they are also used for traditional performing arts that includes elaborate and colourful masks which are handmade on the island. Majuli once had 65 of these satras, however, due to the slow erosion and seasonal flooding of the Brahmaputra River, the number has been reduced to just 22.

The large landmass is also home to the Mishing tribe, an indigenous community with roots in Mongolia who migrated to India in the 16th century. Their houses sitting high on stilts are traditionally made from bamboo and thatch, almost blending into the thick vegetation found on rural parts of the island. The community are extremely affable – don’t be surprised to find yourself being invited into a stilt-house for tea.

Profile shot of a former headhunter from the Konyak tribe in Nagaland. The man's face is darkened by tattoo ink and he has two large black tusks piercing either ear.

Konyak villages, Nagaland

The Seven Sisters are often referred to as tribal states, and, in this context, Nagaland is the region’s poster child. The Nagas is the collective term for around 20 tribes, but each has its own traditions and customs and occupies a different area of land. The largest of these tribes is the Konyaks, mostly situated in the north of the state, around the town of Mon.

The Konyaks are unique for their headhunting traditions. Not so long ago, territorial disputes in the area that is now the India-Myanmar border culminated in the practice of decapitating enemies and displaying their heads as trophies on door frames. These ruthless days are a thing of the past, but remnants of this time endure, most notably in the form of body art; ex-warriors – now in their twilight years – can still be distinguished by their tattooed faces and chests, a decorative practice used to honour their achievements in battle.

Although there are a couple of hotels in Mon where you can base yourself for village visits, a more immersive experience is to opt for a homestay with a Konyak family. The village of Longwa has a number of such accommodation options available, with hosts often doubling as guides. Staying in the village itself not only gives you more of a chance to meet some of the former headhunters, but also provides a window into everyday village life, as well as the opportunity to sample some memorable home-cooked meals, like smoked beef heart served with local red rice. 

The Neermahal palace complex: the palace is on a small island, and, in this shot, almost appears to be floating on the water. The large complex is made from sandstone and marble, with two big white domes visible.

Neermahal, Tripura

One of the smallest and least visited states in the country, Tripura is bordered on three sides by Bangladesh and to the north with Assam. Though it remains a relatively isolated state, it is connected to the country’s national railway network – a rare feature in the Northeast States. 

The state’s most picturesque attraction is Neermahal , which literally translates to water palace. The former royal fortress was built in the 1930s in the middle of the lake by the Maharaja of Tripura and is considered a unique blend of Muslim and Hindu architectural design. To reach it you need to take a wooden boat from the small dock, which is walking distance from the town of Melaghar.

The palace appears like something you might find on the opposite side of the country in Rajasthan , except the pure joy of visiting Neermahal is that you will likely have the place all to yourself. Although the rooms are mostly empty now, you are free to roam around the complex and admire the view of the lake from various vantage points. The palace is particularly striking at sunset, when the marble domes are splashed in a golden hue.

An aerial view of the city of Gangtok in Sikkim, which is located on a hilltop and surrounded by verdant forest.

Gangtok, Sikkim

Sikkim is a former mountain kingdom, bordered by Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal , and features some of India’s most impressive mountains vistas and trekking opportunities. It’s the least populated state in the country and one-third of its area is covered by the Kanchenjunga National Park to the north.

And for all this natural splendour, it is Sikkim’s urban charms that steals the show. The state’s capital, Gangtok , is one of India’s most laid-back cities and is a joy to explore. The majority of the population have origins in Nepal and Tibet, and you will find typical Himalayan delights such as momos (dumplings), thukpa (noodle soup), yak wool shawls and thangka paintings in the open-air market in the city centre. You can explore Gangtok’s Buddhist culture further by visiting some of the city’s nearby monasteries such as Rumtek, which is the largest in Sikkim.

The state is extremely mountainous and the sprawl of Gangtok laps against the slopes of the surrounding hills. There are a few lookout points around town, the best of which is considered to be Tashi Viewpoint, where you can gaze at the impressive mountain backdrop of the city which, on a clear day, extends all the way to Kanchenjunga, the world’s third-highest mountain.

A rhino grazes on grassland in Kaziranga National Park. In the background a lake and forest is visible.

Kaziranga National Park, Assam

The Seven Sisters are known for their vast natural landscapes, and the forest and floodplains of the Karizanga National Park are considered – remarkably – to be one of the last areas on the Indian subcontinent that is undisturbed by human settlement. Its place as a wildlife haven has been recognised for over a century, which has allowed tigers, elephants and one-horned rhinoceroses to flourish amongst the wetlands of the Brahmaputra River. It’s home to two-thirds of the world’s population of rhinos and sighting them grazing in the grass is highly likely, even on a short visit.

As with the more famed national parks in India, a jeep safari is the most common way to explore the park. The reserve is divided into five sections, with the well-maintained tracks of Kohora being the most popular and busy. Agoratoli is perhaps the best alternative, with much less traffic while retaining a high chance of animal sightings.

Some of the most famous photos of the park are of tourists on elephant-back safaris. Although the creatures are reputedly well cared for by rangers, in the interest of animal welfare it is highly recommended to explore the park on four wheels instead. There are numerous lodges ranging from high end resorts to budget camps on the outskirts of the park, which can arrange half-day safaris from their doorstep.

A single road winds its way up a steep mountain in Sikkim. With more mountains visible in the distance.

Getting around

The remoteness and somewhat isolation of the Northeast region of India does pose certain barriers to those wishing to explore its far corners. Tourist and transport infrastructure is fairly limited and often, not in great shape. However, there are significant improvements planned for the future, which will only make travel easier.

The capital of Assam, Guwahati , is the region’s major transport hub and you’ll likely find yourself revisiting multiple times for connections between places. For now, it’s home to the region’s only international airport and it’s connected by flight directly to seven countries, all of which are in Asia. Guwahati also has the region’s main interstate railway station with services to most other major cities in Northern India.

Besides Tripura and Assam, the rest of the Seven Sisters do not have an existing rail network and must be explored by either state government buses or private and shared jeeps. This can pose some obstacles to travel plans as the mountainous region and poor road conditions, particularly in Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland, make travelling between places long and arduous. However, jeeps are abundant, relatively well organised and will go virtually anywhere, so with some time and patience the rewards are boundless.

"This is to convey my heartfelt Thanks to you for facilitating a beautiful and enjoyable tour of ARUNACHAL PRADESH for me and my family. All your arrangements were good enough to be recommended to friends and acquaintances which I already have done by supplying them with your phone numbers / email-id. The Driver viz. Mr. Bikash Chetry, whom I should better call a "Friendly Guide" was just par excellence. The charming personality of Mr. Chetry besides his compassionate and humanitarian approach to us in times of difficulties have impressed us greatly."

- Chinmoy Dutta | 15Jun, 2018

"Thank you very much for a wonderful trip. My family & I really appreciate your teams efforts in organising a last minute package tour and still managing to make it a memorable 6 days for us.It was unfortunate that things had to be changed at the last minute due to Assam Bandh & we were unable to do zipline as we reached there on a Sunday & missed the orchid park as it was closed due to the festival. Mr.Bikas Chetry was very helpful in guiding us throughout,especially keeping us company in climbing to the double decker root bridge & being very patient & encouraging in our slow ardous climb back! Overall it was a wonderfully organised trip.We would definitely travel with you again & are already planning Arunachal for our next adventure."

- Dr. Lakshmi Kannan | 17Jan, 2019

"We had a very good trip overall. The arrangements made by Kaziranga Travels at different places were as promised in the itinerary with no hassles faced by us. The driver, Pranjal, was very good. He is an excellent driver and we never felt unsafe at any moment even in the bad hilly roads. He was polite, courteous, helpful, took care of all our needs very well, and entertained us with stories on and off about culture and history of Assam. Overall, the interaction with Kaziranga Travels has been very good and we would definitely consider you again if we visit in that part again or recommend you to our friends. Thanks for the arrangements."

- A Professor from an IIT (Name Withheld) | 27May, 2018

"We had a wonderful trip. Overall the tour was excellent. It was well organized and everything went very smoothly. The elephant safari and Jeep safari arranged at Kaziranga national park was fantastic and unforgettable. We loved every minute of our trip and can’t wait to plan another in future. We are especially grateful to you and as an organizer your efforts, services and response were commendable. In fact you played a vital role in our tour right from the beginning and attended the calls sincerely and replied honestly. This experience made me to influence my friends to certainly approach your travels for NE sightseeing tours. We had a blast and felt like we were living in the dream. Many Thanks to you"

- Dr. N. Navichandran | 22Nov, 2018

"Thanks for you very well organised trip. Bikas....was very good..humble with excellent driving....cherry on the cake. Got very good knowledge of northeast .👍👌 Because of him....trip went smoothly.

Jaw-dropping sceneries, the gracious hospitality of the locals, the diverse traditions and culture along with a rich history and the eco-friendly way of life have made Northeast India one of the most unique and special travel destinations in India .

Northeast India is undoubtedly one of our favourite destinations and we keep going back there whenever we can. We have been often asked by our readers about Northeast India Tourism and travel. The result of all such questions is this article, the comprehensive Northeast India travel guide where we have tried to answer the travel related queries and have given important tips regarding travel to Northeast India.

Sela Lake Tawang

Northeast India travel has never failed to surprise us. Be it chasing the clouds and waterfalls of Meghalaya or attending the colourful festivals of Northeast, each time we visited the land we were overwhelmed by the natural beauty, tribes and culture of the northeast Indian states. And the best thing is that Northeast India is one of the few places where the people still respect nature and live in perfect harmony with them. Of late, the states of northeast India has come on the tourist map because of various annual festivals like Hornbill , NH7 Weekender, Ziro Music Festival, Sangai, Dambuk Orange Festival and others. But believe me, northeast is much more than these colourful festivals.

You must have understood by now that we love Northeast India. Agni also has his roots in Assam, one of the northeast states. Our first trip to the northeast was in 2012 when we visited Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh . That was the first time I was introduced to this exotic and brazen land that is so rich in history and culture.

Where is Northeast?

Northeast India consists of 8 states – Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim. Earlier the northeast Indian states were known as the Seven Sisters and included Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. It was only in 2002 that Sikkim was added as the member of Northeast Council and became the eight state of Northeast India and is known as the only Brother of the Seven Sister States.

The Indian Prime Minister has also regarded the eight northeast Indian states as the Ashta Lakshmi , which means the eight forms of goodness and wealth.

The 8 northeast states have a common border with foreign countries like Bangladesh, Myanmar, Bhutan, China and Nepal.

Northeast India states only 2% of their border with mainland India and the remaining 98% is linked with international boundary.

Quite obviously, the influence of these neighbouring countries is more in this region than that of mainland India. And so it might also seem that this region is quite different from mainland India as well. The Seven Sister States are connected with the rest of India by a thin strip of land of about 22 km (14 miles) known as Chicken’s Neck of Bengal or the Siliguri Corridor. Nepal and Bangladesh are on either side of the Chicken’s Neck. Sikkim lies on the other side of the Chicken’s Neck.

A Very Brief History of Northeast India

I believe that a place and its people cannot be fully understood if we do not know its history. So here is a little bit of history about the land.

Northeast India is considered to be a Neolitic enigma for the archaeologist. The area is yet to be mapped and documented in a proper way by the archaeologists mainly because of the wild forests and rugged terrains that make excavation difficult. It is now known that the Neolithic life in the region dates back to at least 6000 years !

Coming back a little later in time, the Ahom kingdom was established in the Brahmaputra valley in the first half 13th century by the Shans who had migrated from Upper Burma. The Ahoms were the undisputed rulers in the region for almost 600 years and even the Mughals were unable to invade the region.

The Mughals tried to capture the Ahom kingdom time and again and failed miserably each time. They tried for the last time in the Battle of Saraighat in 1671 when the Mughals were beaten by the Ahoms.

Old map of Ahom Kingdom

However, with time, the might of the Ahom rulers waned and in 1818, disturbed by the repeated Burmese invasions, the Ahom King requested the assistance of the British East India Company to teach the Burmese a lesson. The British East India Company fought the war and defeated the Burmese resulting in the Treaty of Yandaboo , by which the Burmese agreed to withdraw from Assam and the Ahom Kings ceded a part of their territory to the British East India Company. This is how the British finally entered the Northeast region. Till 1947, the northeast region faced the expansion of the British rule along with social, economic and political changes in the region.

At that time, all seven states did not exist. Assam existed as a large land region and was known as the Assam province. Later the hill kingdoms of the Khasi and Jaintia were annexed and hilly areas like the Lushai Hills (Mizoram) and Naga Hills (Nagaland) were added to the Assam Province.

Assam annexation to British India in 1838

After the Indian independence, the northeast region consisted of the Assam province and the princely states of Manipur and Tripura. The first state to be carved out of Assam was Nagaland in 1963. Later Meghalaya became a separate state in 1971 and Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram were carved out of Assam in 1987. Sikkim was once a princely kingdom and was annexed to India in 1975. Later in 2002, Sikkim was made a part of the Northeast Regional Council.

The northeast India had always been a part of major and minor trade routes from India to various other countries like Tibet, Myanmar and China.

That was quite a bit of history lesson. Now let us delve into all the necessary and relevant information about Northeast India trip that nobody had told you before.

Northeast India Travel Guide

Northeast India is still considered remote and difficult terrain. The roads are a bit difficult and there is a lot of space for improvement of the infrastructure. As for the accommodations, you will get good hotels and resorts in the main cities. Homestays are also available. You can check Cozycozy to look for stays in the main tourist destinations. The remote areas, however, has basic stay options.

What the region lacks in luxurious comfort is totally fulfilled by the stunning and virgin landscapes, friendly locals and the vibrant culture. No two states in the Northeast are the same. You will find a variety in every state, every part of the region. It is like visiting a different place in every single state of the northeast. You might be tempted to call it the hidden utopia of India.

However, if you are planning a Northeast India travel and a visit this untouched paradise of India, there are certain facts and things you must know before your Northeast trip. So if you are thinking of adding Northeast India in your India guided tour , then simply read on!

What is the best time to visit North East India?

The best time to visit the northeast region is from October to mid-May. This is the dry period though you can get occasional showers in this time as well. Due to its varied geography, the temperature of the region varies drastically depending on the altitude. The northern part is influenced by the Himalayas and the temperature usually remains cold. Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim are mostly influenced by this and have a colder climate.

The summer temperature in the hilly areas remains around 15 to 20 degrees while it can go to subzero during the winters. The higher altitudes of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim often witness snowfall in the winters.

The plains of Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura have warmer climates. In summer, the temperature ranges from 30-35 0 C and about 20 0 C in the winters. The hilly areas of Nagaland and Mizoram have a cooler temperature.

The monsoon in Northeast India can be quite heavy with torrential rains in most of the areas. The monsoon coincides with the summer season and is from June to September. The latter half of May can also witness rainfall. Monsoon is not a very good time to visit the region as landslides are common during the monsoon. Roads can also be disrupted during the monsoon.

Umiam Lake or Barapani - places to visit in Meghalaya - Northeast India travel guide

However, Meghalaya is a good place to visit during the monsoon. Meghalaya is one of the wettest places on the earth with Mawsynram receiving the highest rainfall in the world. We had visited Meghalaya in August and had a great time chasing the rains and waterfalls of Meghalaya.

I would not say the same thing about Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Sikkim. Landslides in monsoon are very common in Sikkim and Arunachal. Sometimes, you can be stuck for a day due to landslide and bad roads in Arunachal. The Brahmaputra plains of Assam gets flooded every year in the monsoon and hence best avoided during this time.

How do I get permits for Northeast India?

To visit some of the Northeast India states, you need to get an Inner Line Permit (ILP) for Indian nationals. Foreign tourists also need ILP and Protected Area Permits (PAP) or Restricted Area Permits (RAP) for visiting the northeast India states. These permits are required because of the strategic and sensitive positions of these states as they share their border with other countries. However, in recent days, the government of India has relaxed some of the rules of ILP and PAP to promote Northeast India tourism.

There are some places which are completely off bound to both Indian and foreign tourists while in some places, foreign tourists are not allowed. Here I will provide the information about each of the states.

Arunachal Pradesh : ILP is required for Indian tourists and PAP for foreign tourists.

Assam : No ILP and PAP is required to visit Assam

Manipur: ILP is not required for Indian tourists visiting Manipur. However, wef January 2020, the ILP system came into effect in Manipur. The process and procedure to obtain ILP for Manipur is still not clear. I will update it as soon as we come to know about this. Foreigners do not require PAP to visit Manipur.

Meghalaya: No ILP and PAP is required to visit Assam

Mizoram: Indian tourists require an ILP to visit Mizoram. Foreign tourists do not require any PAP to enter Mizoram.

Nagaland: Indian tourists require an ILP to visit Mizoram. Foreign tourists do not require any PAP to enter Mizoram.

Sikkim: Indian tourists do not require ILP to visit Sikkim except certain areas like North Sikkim, Tsomgo Lake, Nathula Pass, Menmecho Lake, Singalila area and Dzongri area. Foreign Tourists require a permit to enter Sikkim. This permit can be readily obtained at the Melli and Rangpo border-crossing checkpoint on producing valid Indian Visa. Foreigners are not allowed to visit Gurudongmar Lake in North Sikkim, Baba Mandir and Nathula Pass in East Sikkim. For Tsomgo Lake, Yumthang, Chopta Valley, foreign tourists require PAP. Trekking permits are required for trekking in Singalila, Dzongri and Goechela area.

Tripura: No ILP and PAP is required to visit Assam

For getting an ILP, you generally require a photo identity proof, an address proof and a photograph. The cost of ILP varies from state to state. You can read all the information needed for getting an ILP for Northeast India states here.

How do I get to Northeast India?

Guwahati in Assam is the gateway to Northeast India. Guwahati is well connected by flights and trains from all the major cities in India. From Guwahati, you can visit all the Seven Sisters by either by air or by road. There are overnight bus services to reach the Seven Sister states from Guwahati.

Reaching Sikkim is comparatively easier. Sikkim now has an airport at Pakyong, but the number of flights to Pakyong is quite less. It is better to fly into Bagdogra in West Bengal and then travel to Gangtok in Sikkim. You can also travel by train to New Jalpaiguri Railway Station (NJP) and then travel to Sikkim.

Train service is available in Assam and Tripura and you can reach to various parts of these states by train.

How to get around Northeast India?

Shared jeeps and sumos are available in all the 8 Northeast India states for getting around different towns and villages. Bus services are also available at some of the states, however, you will not find Volvo bus services to reach each state. For a Northeast India trip, you can either go for a booked tour or can backpack across the region on shared vehicles.

Roads on the way from Guwahati to Tawang - Northeast India travel guide

Before planning your Northeast India trip, you have to keep in mind the distances between two destinations and the conditions of the roads. The roads in most parts of Northeast India are not in a very good state, especially in parts of Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Mizoram. Even the remote areas of Meghalaya have bumpy roads.

In general, the roads in Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura are in good condition and quite smooth . We had done a bike trip across Meghalaya a few years back and found the roads to be quite good. Assam and Tripura, too have nice roads. The road conditions in Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Sikkim leaves much to be desired. Most of the roads are in sorry conditions and you will generally have a bumpy ride. However, these states have a robust sumo system, especially Mizoram and Sikkim that can connect to every part of the state.

Getting around Tripura is comparatively easier because of the availability of train services. Local buses are also available that can take you across the main towns and places of attractions.

How is the infrastructure in Northeast India?

The infrastructure in Northeastern states has improved a lot in the present years. Roads are being built and electricity has reached most of the villages. However, the remote areas are still lacking in these basic facilities. In general, Meghalaya has proper roads, hotels for tourists, electricity in the villages and other basic amenities. However, when we had visited Mawlyngot , we found a village that could be only reached by climbing down almost a thousand stairs from Mawlyngot. The villagers are used to climbing up and down for their daily needs. There are other such remote villages all over Northeast states.

Mobile network and wifi are good in the cities and the capitals of the states. But once you venture to the remote areas, mobile network invariably fails. We hardly got Vodafone connection in Basar, Mawlyngbna and even in some remote parts of Sikkim like Martam . You will probably get BSNL connection in these remote areas. But it would be foolhardy to expect good wifi in these areas. Poor mobile connectivity is a blessing in disguise for these areas. These are the places where you can enjoy nature and the landscape to the fullest. The joy of missing out on the worldly news is great in these areas.

Where do I stay in Northeast India?

Hotels are available in main cities and the popular tourist destinations of Northeast India. You will get luxury hotels with a high standard of service in big cities like Guwahati, Shillong and Gangtok. These places have witnessed tourism for a long time and so are more developed. Of late, accommodation options have increased with the increase in tourism in Northeast India. Now places like Majuli , Cherrapunjee,  Kohima, Tawang, Tura in the Garo Hills have hotels of various categories. Resorts have also come up in a few areas like Cherrapunjee, Tura, Langkawet and many tourist spots in Sikkim.

Lakeside Resort Langkawet - Northeast India travel guide

But if you choose to visit the offbeat destinations, then expect basic accommodation. Hotels, if available will not be luxurious ones and often the standard of service is not up to the mark.

We, however, recommend you to stay at homestays when you visit Northeast India. Homestays are the best way to experience the lifestyle of the locals. Infact, the locals are very friendly and welcome you with open arms as well as hearts. We had the most amazing stays in homestays at Martam and Dzongu (Sikkim), Mawlyngot, Cherrapunjee and Tura in Meghalaya and at Basar in Arunachal Pradesh.

Homestay at Dzongu in Sikkim

In fact, most of the remote and offbeat areas in Northeast India rely on homestays for accommodation and hospitality. These places do not have hotels. The locals have developed community-based tourism and have opened their homes for the tourists. We would always recommend you to stay at homestays. Not only will you get an awesome experience, but you will also do your bit to help the locals to boost their economy.

Mizoram has a great network of Government-run tourist lodges in all the major locations. Those are the best places to stay in Mizoram.

Where to visit in Northeast India?

Northeast India is an unexplored paradise in India. To be honest, the region does not have many architectural masterpieces that you can find in rest of India. Apart from Sivsagar in Assam and Kangra Fort in Manipur, there are hardly any architectural gems. But what Northeast India lacks in architecture, it fulfils in its surreal landscape, colourful festivals and the diverse tribes.

As I had mentioned before, each of the states is different from the other. While you can explore the Buddhist monasteries and way of life in Sikkim and parts of Arunachal Pradesh, the tribal life of Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh are fascinating. While Tripura boasts of a rich heritage in its archaeological sites like Unakoti, Chabimura and Pilak, Mizoram stuns with its stunning vistas. Meghalaya is in its own world of clouds and rains, while the river plains and rural beauty of Assam are totally bewitching.

It would be very difficult for me to write down about all the places that you can visit in Northeast India. I have taken each state and have written briefly about the places you can visit. For more details about these places, you can read individual blogs.

Arunachal Pradesh

Hidden between the hills of the lower Himalayas, Meghalaya is the place between the heaven and earth, where the clouds dwell. Meghalaya is perhaps closest to Guwahati. It takes only 3-4 hours to reach Shillong from Guwahati. The roads are also smooth. Perhaps this is the reason why Meghalaya is relatively famous on the tourist map than the other remote states. Meghalaya is known for its rainfall and rock music. But the place is

much more than that. Waterfalls, nature, sacred groves, crystal clear rivers, living root bridges , natural caves and picturesque villages abound in the state and they will simply mesmerize you.

The Khasis occupy the Khasi hills of central Meghalaya; Garos occupy the western Garo Hills while the Jaintias occupy the Jaintia hills of eastern Meghalaya. The common trait binding all three communities is its matrilineal system in which the family linage is taken from the mother side.

Frozen Gurudongmar Lake, North Sikkim itinerary

Sikkim has been added to Northeast India states only in 2002. Sikkim lies on the other side of the Siliguri Corridor or the Chicken’s Neck. Sikkim is definitely a more popular tourist destination, perhaps because it is relatively easier to reach. Sikkim has a charm of its own . One of the smallest states in India, Sikkim is nestled in the eastern Himalayas with the Kanchenjunga ranges looming over its landscape. The Sikkimese considers the Kanchenjunga as their guardian deity .

Sikkim is an adventure enthusiast’s delight. The state has some of the best and unexplored trekking trails. The Goechela trek is one of the best high altitude Himalayan treks where you can see as many as 14 summits.

Sikkim is divided into 4 district – east, west, north and south. Tourism in Sikkim can also be divided accordingly.

Tripura tucked away in a corner of the seven sister states was once a princely state. And the magnificence of the kings can be still seen in the building, roads and even in the people of Tripura.

Northeast India travel is like reading a good book. They don’t reveal their secrets at once.

The People of Northeast India

Phodong Monastery - North Sikkim

I have always believed that a place can be best understood through its people. But before visiting northeast India, we would recommend you to learn something about the tribes and locals of the place. The tribal communities usually have a different lifestyle, food habits, rituals and traditions. Respect their traditions and lifestyle. You will be able to enjoy your trip in a much better way if you do so.

Having Chee at Lachen in North SIkkim

For example, while travelling in Sikkim, the popular tourist destinations like Gangtok and Pelling have amenities catering to the facilities of the tourists. But when we visited Dzongu, the Lepcha Reserve in North Sikkim , we found that the locals there are early risers and have their lunch by 10.30 and dinner by 7.30 pm. Our host wanted to change the rules for us, but we decided to have food with them. This made our hosts extremely happy and we spent some of the best times in Dzongu.

The people of Northeast India are very warm and friendly. They can go out of the way to help you and make you comfortable. Our guide in David Scott Trail was a shy young boy. Once he was comfortable, he was full of stories and anecdotes about Meghalaya and the Khasi Hills.

Wildlife of Northeast India

Elephant at Manas National Park - Northeast India travel guide

Northeast India has one of the highest forest covers in India. Quite naturally, the region rich with natural splendour is also the home to abundant flora and fauna. The wilderness of the region also adds to its aura and those who have a penchant for wildlife would not be disappointed. There are many national parks, wildlife sanctuaries in Northeast India that are home to many endangered and exotic species of animals.

If you are looking for tigers, you will not find it here. What you will find here is the endangered one-horned rhinoceros. Almost 2/3 rd of the rhino population in the world are found in this region. Kaziranga National Park, Manas National Park, Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam are the home to these one-horned rhinos.

Arunachal Pradesh is one of the rare places where seven types of wild cats are found – tiger, leopard, clouded leopard, snow leopard, leopard cat, marbled cat and the golden cat. Namdhapa National Park and Mouling National Parks are the best places for wildlife.

Keibul Lamjao National Park is the world’s only floating National Park and is the home to the e ndangered Sangai deer or dancing deer of Manipur .

Hoolock gibbons are found in abundance in Nokrek Biosphere Reserve in Meghalaya, Hoolongapar Wildlife Sanctuary near Jorhat in Assam, Murlen National Park in Mizoram, Trishna WLS and Sepahijala WLS in Tripura. Tripura is also the home to the cute looking Phayre’s Langoor or the Spectacled monkeys . Nagaland is known for its birds – the great Indian Hornbill, Rufous-necked Hornbill, tragopans and many more.

Phayre's Langur in Sepahijala Wildlife Sanctuary Tripura

Sikkim is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers. 30% of all the birds found in the Indian subcontinent are found in Sikkim. There are about 550 species of birds recorded in Sikkim and many of them are endangered. Many endangered animals like the red panda, Himalayan Black Bear, Snow leopard etc are also found in Sikkim.

So if you wish to go for a wildlife trip to Northeast India, you will definitely not be disappointed.

Festivals of Northeast India

Festivals in Northeast India is a mélange of music, dance and colourful costumes. The festivals of northeast India are quite a spectacle to watch.

Northeast India Travel Tips

A few things that you must remember while visiting Northeast India.

  • Please respect the place, people and their culture.
  • Respect nature and do not disturb the eco-system of the place. The locals live in close communion with nature.
  • Do not judge the local community by their food habits and lifestyle. If you do not like any custom and rituals, stay away from it instead of being vocal about them. These customs are their heritage and they have been living by it since long.
  • The people in Northeast India mainly eat non-vegetarian food. If you do not want to eat it, please let your host or tour agent know about it beforehand. Do not complain about the type of food you get. Do remember, that these are remote areas and your host provides you with the best they can. If you cannot compromise on your food habit, then probably northeast India is not the place for you.
  • While staying in a homestay, please adhere to the house rules. Every community has its own set of rules and it is appreciated if you adhere to them. Live like a local when you are in Northeast India.
  • Finally do not throw garbage and litter anywhere. Most of the villages in Northeast are very clean and they have dustbins placed at various locations.
  • Do not get into fights and altercation with the locals. If anything is bothering you, let your host know it.
  • Dress conservatively while visiting the remote areas.
  • Do not venture out alone in remote areas. Take a local guide with you.
  • Do not bring anything out from the sacred groves and be reverent to these groves. The locals consider these forest areas holy and it is their place for worship as well.

Should I opt for Northeast India Tour Package?

Well, this is one of the most important questions that can come to your mind. Well, if you are young and energetic, have time in hand and do not get frustrated if your travel plans get awry, then you can definitely travel northeast India on your own. While Assam, Meghalaya, Sikkim and Tripura have fairly satisfactory transport and infrastructure, the same cannot be said for the other states. Before you decide you want to travel on your own, keep a few things in mind:

  • The roads are in bad conditions in remote areas. Landslides are common in hilly areas. It may so happen that you get stuck at a remote place and cannot move from there even in a couple of days.
  • The shared vehicles start from its source usually early in the morning. If you miss it, you have to wait for the next day.
  • Your plans can go awry any time in Northeast if there is a roadblock or landslide or some problem in the area. So you need to be flexible in your plans.

However, if you use to take a Northeast India tour package from an operator, then you do not have to think about these problems on the road. Your transfers will be seamless and you need not worry about the getting vehicles from one place to another. Also, you will be provided with a guide who will give you information about the place and people. He can also act as the interpreter between you and the local tribal people. Especially, if you are travelling with family, we would recommend you to take the help of tour operators.

Northeast India Travel Guide (FAQs Answered)

Carrying a raincoat or rain jacket is a must for your Northeast India trip, irrespective of the season you visit. You never know when it can rain there. If you are visiting during the winter, do carry proper woollens like sweaters, jackets, gloves, woollen socks and caps. Carry a good pair of shoes and a pair of flipflops. Do not forget to carry your ILP and PAP (where needed), Identity and Adress proofs and photographs. Foreign tourists need to carry their passport and Indian Visa. Carry a mosquito repellant. You will thank me later!

Northeast India is a fairly remote area. The main cities, mainly the capital cities do have hostels. We have stayed in the hostels in Gangtok and Shillong and they were fairly good in terms of cleanliness and comfort. We had also looked for hostels in Aizawl, Mizoram. The hostels were very cheap, but they were not clean. We also did not see and facility for warm water. However, in Mizoram, the government-run tourist lodges are the best options to stay. I am sure Guwahati also will have proper hostels though we haven’t stayed in any. Do not expect hostels in the remote destinations, especially the villages. Homestays are the preferred accommodation options in those places. Homestays are great ways to experience the local culture.

Different places have different language. There’s a huge variety. Each tribe has many sub-tribes and they have their own dialect. The same language can also have various dialects. However, as a traveller, you need not worry. Most of the people speak English. You will not have any problems with all the main tourist destinations. Only when you visit the remote areas, there can be a language barrier. But I am sure you will find a few in the village who can speak English and will help you.

Pork roast - places to eat in Cherrapunjee

This totally depends on what you want to see and where you want to visit. Our recommendation is not to rush travelling in Northeast India. The place is best enjoyed and experienced if you travel slow. If you wish to visit one state, then 7-10 days will be good to cover the main attractions of that state.

Mobile and wifi connection is available in the main cities, towns and popular tourist destinations. But connectivity is poor in the remote areas.

Thank You so much for this detailed article on North-east India .

I have visited Gangtok two years back and what an experience ! It was so soothing to mind and body that I can’t express it . I am now planning to visit Assam next . And specially the Kamakhya temple which carry a great history with itself .

On thing I must say that the rich history of Northeast region needs a close attention of both state government and central government . People of India aren’t aware much about the rich culture and history of north-east because of the ignorance of the Government .

Nice pics……. great place …… wanna go ……. very nice description …… thank you for this blog….

Wow. Very detailed and informative. Covers whole north east. Would look forward to specific travel guide for Manipur and nagaland too. Thanks!!

Thank you so much for your kind comment. Blogs on Manipur are coming soon!

Never seen such a wide coverage on seven sisters. You have covered every aspect, so nothing much to ask – just take your baggage and catch the flight. Would love to combine a package tour and my own programme. Thank you. Debasis Mallik

Thank you so much for your comment! Northeast India is a wonderful place. Hope you have a wonderful time there.

I am a passionate travel blogger. I look at your posts regularly and thank you so much that you have shown the places of North East India in such detail. I especially like the location display map. Thank you very much sir for giving this update.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Keep reading our blogs and supporting us.

Amazing North East of India! We had just visited the Meghalaya and covered almost all the places you have listed here.

Thank you so much for your kind words! Please keep following our blog!

Superb, detailed guidebook to travel the heaven. Thank you so much. I had certain queries, how to get in touch to know more about it?

You can send us a mail at [email protected] or drop a message at Instagram.

Thank you Agni & Amrita. Super detailed, and best guide. Looks like we need a good 2.5 months to cover the entire North East. May I request if you can suggest how can we divide these 7 states in sections for example Assam & Meghalaya can be done in 2-3 weeks & in next trip other two states can be clubbed together etc. Which can give a fair introduction to North East region and quest to visit other places in next trip 😉 ( I am planning for Jan 21 ) Again, Thank you so much for taking these efforts and inspiring us to travel to these gems of India.

Thank you Neha for the lovely comment. Yes, you would need at least 2.5-3 months to cover entire northeast India. I would request you to please drop us a mail with your queries. Thanks again.

You have kind of presented a wholesome introduction and guide to Northeast India. I especially loved the Map showcasing the locations.

Thank you so much Joydeep!

Wow wow wow !! This is the most detailed travel guide anyone can ever ask for…after reading this I don’t think I need to look up anything else before visiting all of North East! Well done! I have been to Sikkim many times since I was born and brought up in Kolkata and totally love Sikkim. Shillong is another favourite, stayed at Ri Kyunjai and was so awesome , the view was to die for. Looking forward to your next blog.

Thank you Anindita!

Looking at the post makes me wanna go and relive all the memories which I had in bits in north east m. There is so much more to just visiting Meghalaya or Assam. Reminds me of my quite days in Imphal .. I wanted to go and attend the Zero and Hornbill festival bit let’s see if this can be done this year or not

I also want to visit the Ziro and Hornbill Festival. Lets plan together!

Wow guys, this is a Northeast India Bible. We love the Northeast and the love started when we took our firs trip together to Meghalaya in 2019 after which we made a pact to travel to atleast one north east state once a year.

Thank you Diana! We have been visiting this beautiful place for long.

This is such a comprehensive guide of entire North East India, we are going to save it definitely. Was searching for something similar for long.

wow man! The blog post is so detailed. Really loved how it has been written. Starting form the maps to history to finally places to see. I have been to only Meghalaya in North East and would love to explore more. Will surely be pinning the blog for my northeast trip

Thanks Nishu! Glad that you liked it!

This is by far one of best, most comprehensive and detailed guides on the North East. Apart from Sikkim, I haven’t been to any other state in the North East and this post has only reignited the travel itch. One of my biggest apprehensions has been the availability of veg food. Some friends returned from Nagaland complaining about going hungry on so many days! The raw beauty of Arunachal and the national parks of Assam are my biggest motivations to visit the NE:)

Thank you Divyakshi. Yes, food can be a problem for vegetarians, but if you don’t mind eating boiled vegetables and rice for a few days, I think Northeast will be just great!

Quite a comprehensive guide for all the 8 states with all the basics covered! Loved how precise and well researched this piece was. I’ve only been to Nagaland in the northeast and the culture uniqueness is astounding. Northeast is one of India’s most beautiful regions and you’ve showcased that pretty well here. Especially the last image that marks the top things to do in each state. Pinned it for later!

Thank you Avantika! I was reading your posts on Nagaland and they are beautiful!

This is most detailed blog on North East India I have ever come across. I now know where I need to look for any information when I’m planning my trip here. Such a great effort guys. You’ll have mentioned every possible detail anyone would require! So commendable.

Thank you so much!

wow this is such a comprehensive guide for North East. I am surely keeping this pinned for my upcoming trip to North East. This is insightful

Thank you Tanayesh!

That is a solid guide that I am bookmarking for my travel – whenever that happens. I have only done one of the 7 states there and was hoping to do one more this year. In particular, I loved the section on the permits coz that info is not that easy to get.

Thank you Ami!

Wow! This is an amazing and comprehensive guide to visiting the North East, Agni & Amrita! Really appreciate the efforts you would’ve out into this for curious travellers like us who are eager to explore that region (especially the ILP guide) 🙂

And the pictures are interwoven well too. Can’t wait for the pandemic to ease out so that we can venture out here 🙂

Thank you so much both of you! Glad that you liked it!

  • Solar Eclipse 2024

See the 2024 Solar Eclipse’s Path of Totality

A total solar eclipse is expected to pass through the United States on April 8, 2024, giving stargazers across the country the opportunity to view the celestial phenomenon in which the sun is completely covered by the moon.

The eclipse will enter the U.S. in Texas and exit in Maine. It is the last time a total solar eclipse will be visible in the contiguous United States until 2044.

Here's what to know about the path of the eclipse and where you can see it.

Where can you see the total solar eclipse?

The eclipse will cross through North America, passing over parts of Mexico, the United States, and Canada. 

The eclipse will enter the United States in Texas, and travel through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Small parts of Tennessee and Michigan will also experience the total solar eclipse.

Much of the eclipse's visibility depends on the weather. A cloudy day could prevent visitors from seeing the spectacle altogether.

When does the solar eclipse start and end?

The solar eclipse will begin in Mexico’s Pacific coast at around 11:07 a.m. PDT. It will exit continental North America on the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, Canada, at 5:16 p.m. NDT.

The longest duration of totality—which is when the moon completely covers the sun — will be 4 minutes, 28 seconds, near Torreón, Mexico. Most places along the path of totality will see a totality duration between 3.5 and 4 minutes.

Where’s the best place to see the total solar eclipse?

The best place to witness the event is along the path of totality. Thirteen states will be along the path of totality, and many towns across the country are preparing for the deluge of visitors— planning eclipse watch parties and events in the days leading up to totality.

In Rochester, NY, the Rochester Museum and Science Center is hosting a multi-day festival that includes a range of events and activities. Russellville, Arkansas will host an event with activities including live music, science presentations, tethered hot-air balloon rides, and telescope viewings.

🐓 SOUTH CAROLINA — UNBEATEN NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!

With undefeated South Carolina jolted onto an unfamiliar backfoot, coach Dawn Staley looked toward her bench to remedy an early 11-point deficit to Iowa — more specifically, she looked toward Tessa Johnson.

The freshman guard outshone her six-point scoring average all tournament long and was a revelation in relief for the Gamecocks. With a team-high 19 points and three triples, Johnson led South Carolina to a slim halftime lead and a dominant third quarter, helping the Gamecocks claim their second national title in three years, 87-75, and cap off a perfect season.

The role players were rolling from the opening tip, as Kate Martin and Sydney Affolter gave Iowa a quick 7-0 lead, but Caitlin Clark scored 13 in a row from all over the court. The newly crowned AP Player of the Year drained a pair of 3s, was fouled on two more attempts and converted at the rim to give her Hawkeyes a 20-9 lead by the first media timeout. Clark finished with 30 points (10 of 28 shooting), eight rebounds and five assists in her last college game.

Iowa's centers Hannah Stuelke and Addison O'Grady admirably limited star Gamecock post Cardoso to just 2 of 6 shooting in the first quarter, but the Brazilian behemoth partnered with Johnson and inevitably found her opening. Johnson — who led the Gamecocks' 36-0 bench scoring advantage — took up the mantle for South Carolina and its top-ranked defense. The freshman guard poked away a pair of steals, turning each into transition baskets, before Cardoso finished through contact to tie the game at 27.

That top-ranked defense also took exception to Clark's early mastery, and a savvy defensive play from Raven Johnson dispossessed Clark and gave the Gamecocks an easy two points before halftime.

South Carolina bottled up this late-half momentum for a roaring start out of the locker room. Chloe Kitts ensured her spot on the floor with two straight baskets out of the intermission, and Te-Hina Paopao nailed a pull-up jumper to give her Gamecocks a 55-46 lead and force Iowa coach Lisa Bluder to burn a quick timeout. 

Cardoso also hauled a career-high 17 rebounds, leading an overwhelming South Carolina rebounding effort that started to wear on the Hawkeyes. The Gamecocks enjoyed a 24-11 rebounding advantage in the second half, including six offensive boards, and a plus-6 advantage in second chance points helped South Carolina maintain its lead.

Paopao nailed a 3 to begin the fourth quarter, one of her three long-range bombs Sunday, and a familiarly balanced South Carolina scoring attack — seven Gamecocks made at least three field goals — proved too much for a late Hawkeyes rally. 

🗣️ South Carolina closing in on national title, perfect season

The Gamecocks can taste it! After a valiant Iowa fightback cut the Hawkeye deficit to just four, a measured response from South Carolina saw the Gamecocks back up 10 after a Raven Johnson free throw with just 90 seconds to go.

Iowa will look for a miracle comeback, while South Carolina looks for the finishing touches on a 38-0 season.

🚨 Five minutes remaining: Iowa eyeing comeback

➡️ into the 4th: south carolina leads by nine, 🚫 danger zone: south carolina extends lead into double figures.

While the Hawkeyes have hung around admirably throughout the third quarter, an emphatic South Carolina run has the Gamecocks threatening to pull away inside the final 11 minutes. 

Caitlin Clark curbed a tough shooting quarter with a gusty take to the rim, pulling her Hawkeyes within just two, but South Carolina then launched a 3-point shooting barrage. Ashlyn Watkins started the run with a conversion at the rim, but Tessa Johnson and Bree Hall connected from long range to cap off the 8-0 run. 

Johnson continued a stellar afternoon — her 15 points lead the Gamecocks — with a 3-pointer from the left corner, and South Carolina grew its lead to 68-57 with just over a minute left in the third quarter. 

💥 Third-quarter explosion: South Carolina roars out of halftime

After putting a pesky NC State squad away Friday with a dominant 29-6 third quarter, South Carolina looks on course for a similar surge out of the locker room. Chloe Kitts, who was limited to just nine minutes, ensured her spot on the floor with two straight baskets out of the intermission, and Te-Hina Paopao nailed a pull-up jumper to give her Gamecocks a 55-46 lead and force Iowa coach Lisa Bluder to burn a quick timeout.

🚧 Defense to offense: Raven Johnson ends half with big steal and score

In a high-scoring affair that saw each team threatening to crack 50 points, it was ultimately a key defensive play that gave South Carolina some rare separation and a jolt of momentum heading into the locker room. 

Caitlin Clark sauntered up the floor with the ball and a chance to give her Hawkeyes a slim lead entering halftime, but the superstar was ultimately dispossessed by Raven Johnson, who flew down the floor uncontested and converted a layup. Johnson's bucket gave South Carolina a 49-46 lead, erasing a Hawkeye advantage as large as 11.

Here's a look at the complete halftime breakdown for both sides — and stay tuned for a thrilling second half:

Image of South Carolina vs. Iowa stats at halftime

😵‍💫 Back and forth: Iowa, South Carolina trade punches into second quarter

After a 7-0 burst from South Carolina leveled the game at 27, the teams have traded haymakers in a thrilling start to the second quarter. 

Tessa Johnson and Kamilla Cardoso have shouldered the second quarter load for the Gamecocks, scoring all but two of South Carolina's points in the period, and a pair of baskets at the rim for the Brazilian star sandwiched a Tessa triple and gave South Carolina a 36-34 lead.

Everybody say YEAHHHH T3SSA!! 📺 @ABCNetwork pic.twitter.com/xPpqHCvB6h — South Carolina Women's Basketball (@GamecockWBB) April 7, 2024

Iowa punched right back, however, as Hannah Stuelke handled a beautiful feed from Caitlin Clark and finished through contact, giving her Hawkeyes a narrow lead entering the second quarter media timeout.

👏 to their feet: cleveland crowd applauds clark's magnificent first quarter.

After corralling a loose ball to close out the first 10 minutes, Caitlin Clark received a rousing ovation from a partisan Hawkeye crowd after a nearly flawless first quarter. Clark finished the period with 18 points, including a deep, contested 3-pointer to send Iowa into the first quarter break with a 27-20 lead. 

Kate Martin also contributed an impressive seven-point performance, and Iowa centers Hannah Stuelke and Addison O'Grady have done excellent work containing star Gamecock post Kamilla Cardoso to just 2 of 6 from the field. 

🔥 She's on fire: Clark scores 13 by first media timeout

Caitlin Clark has clearly shaken off her Rust Belt rust since arriving in Cleveland, as after a slow start in Friday's national semifinal the Hawkeye megastar has been nearly flawless against South Carolina. 

The role players were rolling from the opening tip, as Kate Martin and Sydney Affolter gave Iowa a quick 7-0 lead, but Clark has scored Iowa's last 13 from all over the court. The newly crowned AP Player of the Year drained a pair of 3s, was fouled on two more attempts and converted at the rim to give her Hawkeyes a 20-9 lead with 4:45 left in the first quarter.

What time the 2024 solar eclipse started, reached peak totality and ended

By Sarah Maddox

Updated on: April 9, 2024 / 5:04 AM EDT / CBS News

The 2024 solar eclipse will be visible across North America today. As the moon's position between the Earth and sun casts a shadow on North America, that shadow, or umbra, will travel along the surface from west to east at more than 1,500 miles per hour along the path of totality . 

That means the eclipse will start, peak and end at different times — as will the moments of total darkness along the path of totality — and the best time to view the eclipse depends on where you are located. Some places along the path will have more totality time than others.

In Texas, the south-central region had clouds in the forecast , but it was better to the northeast, according to the National Weather Service. The best eclipse viewing weather was expected in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, as well as in Canada's New Brunswick and Newfoundland.

What time does the 2024 total solar eclipse start?

Eclipse map of totality

The total solar eclipse will emerge over the South Pacific Ocean before the shadow falls across North America, beginning in parts of Mexico. The path of totality , where onlookers can witness the moon fully blocking the sun (through eclipse viewing glasses for safety ), is expected to first make landfall near the city of Mazatlán around 9:51 a.m. MT. 

The total solar eclipse will cross over the U.S.-Mexico border into Texas, where it will emerge over Eagle Pass at 12:10 p.m. CT and then peak at about 1:27 p.m. CT.

In Dallas, NASA data shows the partial eclipse will first become visible at 12:23 p.m. CT and peak at 1:40 p.m. CT. The next states in the path of totality are Oklahoma and Arkansas, where the eclipse begins in Little Rock at 12:33 p.m. CT. 

Cleveland will see the beginning of the eclipse at 1:59 p.m. ET. Darkness will start spreading over the sky in Buffalo, New York, at 2:04 p.m. ET. Then, the eclipse will reach northwestern Vermont, including Burlington, at 2:14 p.m. ET. Parts of New Hampshire and Maine will also follow in the path of totality before the eclipse first reaches the Canadian mainland  at 3:13 p.m. ET.

Although the experience won't be exactly the same, viewers in all the contiguous U.S. states outside the path of totality will still be able to see a partial eclipse. Some places will see most of the sun blocked by the moon, including Washington, D.C., where the partial eclipse will start at 2:04 p.m. ET and peak at about 3:20 p.m. ET.

In Chicago, viewers can start viewing the partial eclipse at 12:51 p.m. CT, with the peak arriving at 2:07 p.m. CT.  In Detroit, viewers will be able to enjoy a near-total eclipse beginning at 1:58 p.m. ET and peaking at 3:14 p.m. ET.

New York City will also see a substantial partial eclipse, beginning at 2:10 p.m. ET and peaking around 3:25 p.m. ET.

In Boston it will begin at 2:16 p.m. ET and peak at about 3:29 p.m. ET.

The below table by NASA shows when the eclipse will start, peak and end in 13 cities along the eclipse's path.

What time will the solar eclipse reach peak totality?

Millions more people will have the chance to witness the total solar eclipse this year than during the last total solar eclipse , which was visible from the U.S. in 2017. 

The eclipse's peak will mean something different for cities within the path of totality and for those outside. Within the path of totality, darkness will fall for a few minutes. The longest will last more than 4 minutes, but most places will see between 3.5 and 4 minutes of totality. In cities experiencing a partial eclipse, a percentage of the sun will be obscured for more than two hours.

Mazatlán is set to experience totality at 11:07 am PT. Dallas will be able to see the moon fully cover the sun at 1:40 p.m. CT. Little Rock will start to see the full eclipse at 1:51 p.m. CT, Cleveland at 3:13 p.m. ET and Buffalo at 3:18 p.m. ET. Totality will reach Burlington at 3:26 p.m. ET before moving into the remaining states and reaching Canada around 4:25 p.m.

Outside the path of totality, 87.4% of the sun will be eclipsed in Washington, D.C. at 3:20 p.m. ET, and Chicago will have maximum coverage of 93.9% at 2:07 p.m. CT. New York City is much closer to the path of totality this year than it was in 2017; it will see 89.6% coverage at 3:25 p.m. EDT. 

Detroit is another city that will encounter a near-total eclipse, with 99.2% maximum coverage at 3:14 p.m. ET. Boston will see 92.4% coverage at 3:29 p.m. ET.

What time will the solar eclipse end?

The eclipse will leave continental North America from Newfoundland, Canada, at 5:16 p.m. NT, according to NASA.

At the beginning of the path of totality in Mazatlán, the eclipse will be over by 12:32 p.m. PT, and it will leave Dallas at 3:02 p.m. CT. The eclipse will end in Little Rock at 3:11 p.m. CT, Cleveland at 4:29 p.m. CDT and Buffalo at 4:32 p.m. ET. Burlington won't be far behind, with the eclipse concluding at 4:37 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, the viewing will end in Chicago at 3:21 p.m. CT, Washington, D.C. at 4:32 p.m. ET, and New York City at 4:36 p.m. ET. 

In Detroit, the partial eclipse will disappear at 4:27 p.m. ET, and in Boston, it will be over at 4:39 p.m. ET.

How long will the eclipse last in total?

The total solar eclipse will begin in Mexico at 11:07 a.m. PT and leave continental North America at 5:16 p.m. NT. From the time the partial eclipse first appears on Earth to its final glimpses before disappearing thousands of miles away, the celestial show will dazzle viewers for about 5 hours, according to timeanddate.com . 

The length of the total solar eclipse at points along the path depends on the viewing location. The longest will be 4 minutes and 28 seconds, northwest of Torreón, Mexico. Near the center of the path, totality takes place for the longest periods of time, according to NASA.

Spectators will observe totality for much longer today than during the 2017 eclipse , when the longest stretch of totality was 2 minutes and 32 seconds.

The moon's shadow seen on Earth today, called the umbra, travels at more than 1,500 miles per hour, according to NASA. It would move even more quickly if the Earth rotated in the opposite direction.

What is the longest a solar eclipse has ever lasted?

The longest known totality was 7 minutes and 28 seconds in 743 B.C. However, NASA says this record will be broken in 2186 with a 7 minute, 29 second total solar eclipse. The next total solar eclipse visible from parts of the U.S. won't happen until Aug. 23, 2044.
