North East Tour Packages will help you to explore North East states very easily. The seven sisters- Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur, and Nagaland have always been an integral yet neglected part of India. All of these states remain untouched by human lust and encroachment and thus, are rich in natural beauty and are home to some of the world’s most amazing natural wonders like double root bridge, single root bridge, etc.
So if you are a nature lover and a travel enthusiast, then North-East India should be on your bucket list. And this vacation, you have the perfect opportunity to tick it off your list.
The North Eastern States
The state of Meghalaya is renowned for lush, evergreen rainforests all along the Garo, Khasi, and Jaintia hills and has the highest amount of rainfall in India. It also has Asia’s cleanest village- Mawlynnong. The Dawki river, that separates India-Bangladesh border, known for its extremely clean waters lies in the south-west part of Meghalaya. The main religion practiced here is Christianity. People are extremely humble and always ready to help. The local food is mostly non-vegetarian, so if you are a vegetarian or vegan, you will have limited options. There is only one airline that operates here so if you are flying, you can also land in Guwahati and explore Assam and take a taxi to Shillong. It is best advised to hire a taxi for all the days if you are planning a non-conducted tour as the areas are very remote and there is not much public transportation in Cherrapunji, Mawlynnong, etc.
Assam is famous for its tea gardens and the legendary Kamakhya Devi Temple dedicated to Goddess Kamakhya. It is one of fifty-one Shakti Piths in India and is a place of immense spirituality. Guwahati city has an airport which is about an hour outside the main city. This is the most easily accessible state.
Arunachal Pradesh the state that lies on Indo-China border and thus, has an influx of Buddhism. Scenic landscapes and too real to be true architecture of the monasteries in Tawang and Itanagar are a must-visit. To add a little more adventure, you can take the helicopter ride from Guwahati to Tawang which is very economical.
How should I plan a trip?
If you are someone who is not a good planner, then I would suggest consulting travel agencies by simply searching for North East Tour Packages online. You will get a good estimate of the cities and places that you must visit. Don’t feel pressured to go with the first agency that you come across. Explore further and then decide what suits your pocket, your convenience, and your plans the most.
A trip to these hills may be a little expensive than you had hoped for because public transport is not readily available everywhere except in the main cities. Since these hills (Garo, Khasi, and Jaintia) are not too high, almost the same elevation as that of Nainital, so even physically handicapped people or elderly people who have some trouble breathing can easily go to these places.
You haven’t really explored India if you don’t go to these places. They are real places with fresh and clean air. It’ll be the experience of a lifetime.
