The states of North East India are a land of pristine untouched forests, lush green valleys, lost and forgotten cultures nestled in mountains that disappear into the clouds. Thrown across the farthest reaches of India, obscured from the greater world by ageless forests and formidable mountain ranges, the states of North East India are one of Asia’s last great natural and anthropological sanctuaries.
This well crafted exclusive tour of Meghalaya and Assam enhances your experience not only by the comfort of good stay but also gives you an opportunity to get a closer insight into North East India.
These remote frontiers of rugged beauty are ready to unfold an eclectic mix of tribal cultures, climates, landscapes and people.
The clouds, waterfalls, Caves and never ending cool blue mountains define the essence of Meghalaya. The simpleton khasi tribe are warm and welcoming.
In other words, traveller with a taste for raw adventure and the thirst to explore the remote and the unexplored, alongside the comfort driven stay and travel arrangements can bag this opportunity. The saying “The more you look, the more you see” aptly summarises this expedition.
