Day Wise Itinerary

Northeast India is made up of seven separate but adjoining states, as well as standalone Sikkim and is the most tribal region of India. Although the mountainous scenery is arresting, the northeast region remains the least visited part of India. This has been due to its remoteness and the permit requirements placed on tourists.

Here is how you will spend your time
