NORTHEAST INDIA / OVERVIEW >>    

This section includes the hill states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. The north eastern states of India are a distinct area due to its geography being landlocked with only a narrow corridor to the rest of India and surrounded by the countries of Bangladesh, China, Bhutan, Burma and Nepal. There is considerable ethnic and religious diversity within the seven states (of which Arunachal Pradesh and Assam are the largest). Much of the population of this area is tribal with their own languages. The main religions of the area are Hinduism and Christianity. Tea is a major crop and the states are heavily forested due to the plentiful rainfall. The region is home to some of Indias most endangered wildlife (including the one-horned rhinoceros and Bengal tiger).

Major attractions & cities of this area:
Assam and the tea gardens; the Brahmaputra River and the cruises that can be taken on it; Kaziranga National Park; Guwahati; Shillong; the Nagas and other tribal groups.

Best time to visit the Northeast: October/November to April/May

Know Before You Go: to make an informed decision about the destination you are considering visiting citizens should take the advice of their respective governments. For British citizens that is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO website gives travel advice (health, safety, security etc) for every country. We recommend you look at this before booking any holiday and then again before departure. (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice)
