By Aanchal Gupta Subscribe to RSS | January 6th 2012 | Views:

The northeastern regions of India hold unlimited tourist potential. The six sister states are rich with wildlife, architectural beauty, natural vistas and wonderful climate. North east packages are some of the most enthralling tour packages that you can opt for your upcoming holidays. Located in the lap of the mighty Himalayas, these places are nestled amidst stunning sceneries. The tours are comfortably priced, but the relaxation, enjoyment, fun and peace that you can experience amidst these mountains and valleys are priceless.

The two most visited places of tourist interest in the northeast are Darjeeling and Gangtok. Darjeeling tour takes you back in time. The place has not been spoilt due to indiscriminate urbanization and commercialization. If you have ever wondered how the world looked before modernization took over, you must go on a Darjeeling tour. The place is characterized by churches, old world brick chimneys and a generous sprinkling of oriental architecture.

In Darjeeling, you can visit several places such as Dhoom Gompa where you get to see Buddhist monastery and a mesmerizing statue of Maitrayie Buddha and the Mall where you can shop for |Himlayan artifacts, Tibetian woolen clothing, special photographs that you can take back as souvenirs and lots of other goods. The Chowrastha is another place where you can shop of unique and distinct things including tribal ornaments, beautiful rosaries and brass artifacts. So, make sure that you take time out for shopping in your Darjeeling tour. Other places that you should include when you come to Darjeeling as part of north east packages are the Observatory Hill, Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and the Ropeway.

Gangtok is as beautiful as a place can get. To experience the true beauty of the place, plan a tour of Gangtok around summer. Some of the attractions that are usually included in every tour of Gangtok are the famous Kanchenjunga National Park, Gezing village, Tsongo Lake, Khechapari Lake, Phodong Gompa, Yumthang Valley, Rumtek Gompa and several others. Special places of spiritual and religious significance are Ganesh Tok, Hanuman Tok and several monasteries.

If you love nature and wildlife, Fambong La Wildlife Sanctuary which is situated just 20 km from Gangtok is a must visit. It is a forest with a very varied kind of plant life, flowers and rare animals such as red panda, Himalayan black bear, bearcat and many others.

A combined tour of Gangtok and Darjeeling is a great idea if you are touring the northeast. They are located close enough to be accommodated in single north east packages. A tour of the northeast will definitely turn out to be one of the best holidays in your life. You will want to visit the place over and over again in order to experience the serenity, spirituality and beauty of the land. So, make northeast your next tourist destination and carry back long lasting memories from the place.
