North East India and Nepal Tours

The North East is a frontier region in every sense. The north-eastern region of India is the most varied, but also the least visited by the foreign travelers. Before independence, the entire north-east was known as Assam Province. Even Assam, now confined largely to the Brahmaputra Valley, is highly distinct.It has over 800 km of border with Burma and at least that distance again with China and Bhutan. But although the northern border runs through the easternmost extension of the Himalayas and the border to the south east with Burma also runs through mountain ranges, the north eastern hill states are a region of transition.

Set out on adventure treks to tribal areas in Manipur, Tripura, Nagaland and Shillong and be enamored with the profusion of color that greets you. Tour peaceful gompas in Sikkim; experience breathtaking Meghalaya splendor and be enamored with tribal traditions of Mizoram and Tripura with North East Tribal Tourism packages. Destinations in North East India are ideal for adventure sports like para gliding, river rafting, mountain climbing, trekking and hand gliding.

Area

Over 250,000 sq km

Population

About 40 million, more then half in Assam.

Currency

Indian Rupees (approx 74/£1 or 47/1$) .

Wildlife

In the numerous National Parks, you will see elephants, one-horned rhinos, various deer, wild boar, otters and a variety of birds. Tigers, clouded leopards and snow leopards are also there but very elusive.

Adventure activities

Climbing, trekking, rafting, caving and paragliding.

Best time to go :

It all depends what you are into. September to April avoids the monsoon and is the best time for most activities. September is generally the best time for flowers, following the rains. October - November is harvest time. The rivers are at their lowest by springtime but still have enough Himalayan run-off to guarantee a good rafting trip. Festivals happen in all states throughout the year. The Naga Hornbill Festival in early December is excellent though no doubt others such as the Buddha Mahotsava Festival in Tawang in mid October is equally remarkable - or you may just bump into some traveling troubadour.
