North East India

Defined by the mighty Brahmaputra River which snakes through the heart of the north east, this is an underexplored region of spectacular natural beauty, pristine wildlife reserves and a strong indigenous culture. Assam is the most accessible state and the starting point for cruises on the Brahmaputra linking Guwahati with Dibrugarh whilst neighbouring Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh are home to a rich tribal heritage and colourful annual festivals. The region is also the location of some of India’s best national parks with Kaziranga, home of the one-horned rhinoceros, Manas, Nameri, Namdapha and Dibru-Saikhowa sanctuaries to a staggering variety of flora and fauna. For the more adventurous, travel through Meghalaya on a unique journey combing Cherrapunjee with neighbouring Bangladesh. All of our holidays and tours to north east India are unique and fully personalised.
