The north-eastern region of India is the most varied, but also the least visited by the foreign travelers. Before independence, the entire north-east was known as Assam Province. It has over 800 km of border with Burma and at least that distance again with China and Bhutan. But although the northern border runs through the easternmost extension of the Himalayas and the border to the south east with Burma also runs through mountain ranges, the north eastern hill states are a region of transition.
