North East India is India’s “Path Less Travelled.”

This region is an under-explored gem that slips under the tourist radar as they check the must-see tourist backlist boxes in North India (Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan) and the South (Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Goa).

This hidden gem of a region consists of the Seven Sisters states that are located in the foothills of the Lower Himalayas in the geographical northeast of the country.

These include the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura.

Part of the reason why this region remains hitherto underexplored in terms of tourism was a lack of decent infrastructure (roads, air travel, world-class luxury hotels) to support the industry.

But with the tremendous strides made in recent years, that challenge has been overcome. Getting to, and getting around this part of India is now quite easy thanks to a decent network of roads, trains, domestic/international airports and state-of-the-art resorts, heritage stays and contemporary hotels.

North East is an ancient realm of secrets and wonders.

It is the realm of the sacred Brahmaputra River, towering snow-clad mountains, scenic tea gardens, exotic wildlife and rich indigenous cultures.

We offers you bespoke tours and itineraries to this amazing part of India with 24/7 guidance and support by a team of expert travel advisors.

Tea Bungalow Serenity: Heritage Retreat in Assam or Darjeeling

Tea was introduced to this part of India by the British Raj in the middle of the 19th century from China. Traders and plantation owners discovered that the region’s high-altitude and mist-filled climate is ideal for tea growing. What followed was a wave of the establishment of Tea plantations owned.

Tea and spice trade became the key pillars of colonial trade and commerce in the 19th and 20th centuries. Now many of these colonial tea estates (with their ownership passed down to Indians) have been transformed into heritage retreats and resorts that offer an authentic hill station cum tea estate experience.

As per the last count, the overall population of rhinos at Kaziranga stands at 2,613 (up from 2,401 in 205).

Brahmaputra Elegance: Luxury River Cruise

From the glaciers of the mighty Himalayas spring the great Indian rivers that replenish and sustain lives in the plains and deltas of mainland India thousands of meters down below.

As these rivers of the Himalayas slowly meander and snake their way down from the mountains, they create not just visual delights and spectacles but also avenues for relaxing boat rides and lots of water sports adventures.

The mighty Brahmaputra is to this part of India is to North East what the Ganges is to the North India. We highly recommend luxury river cruises in this river to enjoy the...

Living Bridges

Meghalaya’s Living Bridges Odyssey

The North East state of Meghalaya is known for lots of unique rich-in-eco-diversity things. It is home to places like Cherranpunii and Mawsynram which are known as the wettest places on the planet.

The Mawsmai Caves —featuring unique passageways and underground rock formations—are a dream destination for Spelunking (Cave exploration) enthusiasts.

But the one thing that really attracts tourists to this unique part of India is its “Living Root Bridges.” A marvel of the indigenous engineering prowess of the Khasi people of Meghalaya, these bridges are formed over rivers, streams and water passages by training Rubber Fig trees to form bridges over water.

Sikkim’s Himalayan Spa Sanctuary

The state of Sikkim is one of the most popular destinations in the region. Located at an average height of 1,650 m (5,410 ft) above sea level, Sikkim is nestled in the lap of Himalayan bliss.

Its capital Gangtok is famous for its rich Sikkimese cultural attractions, cuisines, heritage and Buddhist monasteries.

One experience that we highly recommend that you take some time out and treat yourself to a pampering Spa therapy amidst Himalayan Bliss.

Feathered Wonders: Exclusive Birdwatching in Nameri National Park

If you are interested in one-horned rhinoceros, we recommend the Kaziranga National Pak (2,600 rhinos). If your dream wildlife sighting is the magnificent Royal Bengal Tiger, we recommend Manas National Parr/Manas Tiger Reserve (Assam – 60 tigers).

But if you are a birdwatching buff, look nowhere than Nameri.

The Nameri National Park, located in the Sonitpur District of Assam, is one of the region’s best destinations for Birdwatching.

Aside from 600 species of flora and home to such exotic mammals— like Bengal tigers, Indian leopards, marbled cars, hog deer, Sambar Deer, Dhole (Wild Indian Dogs), Gaur (Indian bison) and Himalayan Black...

Culinary Chronicles: Journey with Local Chefs

The food scene in India varies across landscapes.

Food in Southern India is influenced by its abundant spices, herbs and fresh produce. Food in north India is a fusion of the Indo-Saracenic phenomenon (fusion of Persian and Central Asian influences of the Mughal Dynasty with local Hindustani tradition of cooking).

Food in North East India is influenced by climate and topography. Unlike the rest of India, food in the Northeast features ingredients like Bamboo shoots, Bhut Jolokia and fresh greens.

Some iconic dishes of the region are Smoked Pork from Nagaland, the Ngamtok from Arunachal Pradesh (delicious meat made with the help of...

Tea Symphony

Tea Symphony: Tasting at Boutique Estates

By now, you know that the North East is a realm of picturesque and aromatic tea plantations that look like they came from another planet.

One of the highlights of a North East India tour is a serene stay at a tea estate in a mist-covered hill station. We highly recommend Darjeeling in West Bengal where you can also get stunningly beautiful views of the Kanchenjunga (the third-highest mountain in the world).

You may have had your fair share of hill stations but our Tea Symphony at a Heritage Retreat snuggled in the middle of rolling tea gardens is an experience unlike...

River Rush

River Rush: Private Rafting on Umngot, Meghalaya

The Umngot River (also known as the Wah Umngot and Dawki River) that flows in the Jainitia Hills of the Meghalaya is known for its crystal-clear water. One of the cleanest rivers in all of India, the Umngot is the premier destination for white-water rafting in the region.

The water of the river is so clear you can see the base of the river and the rocks and pebbles underneath.

We highly recommend a private rafting expedition in the Umngot River. Don’t worry the water is only 15-20 feet deep, so even if you are not a pro at white-water rafting you should still be...
