Northeast India is the least reached and least explored place in the country which makes this region one of the best places to travel to. It consists of 8 states in total and called as the ‘seven sisters and a brother’. However, let us talk about these seven sisters (Manipur, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, and Nagaland) for now and talk about the best places to visit here.
Manipur is rich in culture, traditions, ecological system, and wildlife. The only floating National Park in the world – Keibul Lamjao National Park, also is situated in Manipur at Loktak Lake which is a must visit place. Similarly, Assam has places that are well-recognized like Kaziranga National Park which is also the home to one-horned rhinoceros. Other places to visit in Assam are Majuli, Sulakuchi, Kamakhya Mandir etc.
Popular places to visit in Meghalaya are Shillong, Cherapunjee – one of the wettest places on earth, Mawylong village, Mawsmai cave etc. Northeast India is rich in culture and tradition and it can be seen in Tripura – the third smallest state in India. Popular places to visit here are Neer Mahal on Lake Rudrasagar, Ujjayanta Palace, Unakoti, Jagannath Temple etc.
Mizoram translates to ‘the land of hill people’ and is also as beautiful as any other northeastern states. Popular places to visit in Mizoram are Vantawang Falls, Dampa Tiger Reserve, Khuangchera Puk cave, Mizo Hlakungpui Mual etc. Arunachal Pradesh is also a popular tourist destination and the best places to visit here are Itanagar, Tawang (one of the oldest villages), Ziro valley, Sela Pass etc. The land of festivals, Nagaland also offers amazing places to visit in northeast India like Dzukou valley, Dimapur, Kohima, Mokukchung etc.
