“A Good traveler has no fixed plans and is not content on leaving.” This stands true in the case of The Land of Seven sisters- the mesmerizing Northeast India. You simply can’t arrive and claim, “That’s it I have seen it all”. A few steps away, an unseen beautiful waterfall would be waiting for you. The clouds floating right by your side and the sun rising from amongst the valley, Northeast holds something special to experience.
Why is it that the most beautiful places are often left unexplored? While many are interested and plan on traveling there, very few finally visit. So we decided to bring together a list of beautiful places that are waiting to be explored. Not only are these places divinely beautiful, the culture of North east is so diverse and different from the rest of India that it will never fail to excite, educate and amaze you.
Here are 9 breath taking places in the northeast nobody is talking about:
