Most of the people who tour India, do not explore the north eastern part of the country. In order to feel the diversity of India, one has to travel India in its entirety by covering all the regions of the country. There are 8 states in this part of India and they are very distinct from all the other parts of the country. Unlike in all other Indian states, the people in these states are mainly of Mongoloid origin and Hinduism is not the majority religion and adherents of Christianity and Islam are also present in equal numbers. There are certain travel agencies based in Kolkata, West Bengal and Guwahati, Assam who organize ‘Tours India’, covering the North Eastern states.

The different states in the region are:

Assam - It is the land of the one-horned endangered rhinoceros, the mighty Brahmaputra River and lush green tea gardens. It is the heart of North East India and is also its gateway. Two famous national parks, Kaziranga National Park and Manas National Park (both are UNESCO world heritage sites) lie in this state. Apart from that the local cuisine and the tea gardens add to its richness and diversity. People are advised to visit this place during their India tour.

Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh - Both these states lie in the Himalayan range and the people there are mainly the followers of Tibetan Buddhism. One can see beautiful lakes, rivers, mountains, lush green forests and monasteries which are hundreds of years old. In winter, snowfall is an added attraction in these states. Many tourists visit these places during their India tour.

Nagaland and Mizoram - Two distinct states with similarity in terms of food and religion. Nagaland is a hilly state with many lakes and rivers. The Nagas follow Animism and Christianity and they are formed of many different tribal groups. Each of the tribal groups has their own dialect and their traditions include different forms of music and dance. You can encounter them during your India travel and India tours.

Mizoram has the second largest literacy rate in India as more than 90 % of the population is literate. The district of Cachar in Southern Assam serves as a gateway to this state. There are many different tribes in the state and the largest among them are the Mizos.

Manipur and Tripura - Manipur is state which has a very diverse flora and fauna and many different ethnic groups live in this state. There are many hills and lakes that one can explore in this state.

Tripura is a very small state inhabited by different tribal groups. The palace of the Kings in Agartala, the capital city is worth visiting. Bengalis are the largest ethnic group in the state. Many tourists visit these two states during their India tour.

Meghalaya -It literally means the abode of clouds and is a beautiful state with majestic hills and friendly tribal population. The Scotland of the East, Shillong is the capital of the state and is a popular tourist destination. It is included in the itinerary of some travel India packages.

You must visit these North Eastern states during your India tour and encounter their beauty.
