Introducing Northeast States

Teetering on the farthest brink of India’s map, popular perception and prime-time TV, the Northeast States are one of Asia’s last great unknowns. Sharing borders with Bhutan, Tibet, Myanmar and Bangladesh, these remote frontiers are a collision zone of tribal cultures, climates, landscapes and peoples. A region of rugged beauty, it’s a wonderland where glacial rivers flow through plunging Himalayan gorges, faith moves mountains on perilous pilgrimages to Tawang and Pemako, rhinoceros graze in Kaziranga's swampy grasslands and former head-hunters slowly awake from opium-induced dreams to embrace modernity in their primordial longhouses in Nagaland.

Of course, it's not all smooth sailing in these faraway states, and you have a horde of everyday obstacles (bad roads, poor infrastructure and social unrest, to name a few) to battle along the way. Needless to say, only those with a taste for raw adventure would return from here feeling truly rewarded.
