HIGHLIGHTS

The least explored, most mysterious and arguably the most beautiful region of India, the Northeast, known as the "Seven Sisters", is connected to the rest of the country by a narrow stretch of land between Bhutan and Bangladesh, and was all but sealed off from the outside world until relatively recently. Until the 1960s the region comprised just two states, the North East Frontier Agency now Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, but separatist pressures further divided it into the seven states, now officially joined by an eighth-Sikkim. Beautiful East India perfectly showcases the country's rich tea heritage and unveils the many facets of this diverse country. We invite our patrons to peek at our sample East India itinerary and take it as a starting point for their dream vacation into spiritual, enchanting and mesmerizing East India.
