The Gems Of North East
The North East of India is a land of blissful Himalayan serenity, breathtaking beauty, natural wonders, and exotic wildlife.
Comprising the “Seven Sister States of North East,” this region is home to 200 indigenous tribes with unique cultures and traditions.
Thanks to massive strides in infrastructure developments, the region has emerged as a great alternative to the North Western Himalayan region and the plains of North India.
On offer in the North East are amazing cultural immersions, Himalayan allure, exotic national Parks (Kaziranga and Manas), mighty rivers (Brahmaputra), and stunningly beautiful hill stations (Darjeeling, Shillong, Gangtok, Meghalaya).
Join Resplendent Travel for an all-exclusive trip of a lifetime to this hidden gem of India.
