Every region on this planet is different and can offer experiences that are unique in nature. That same is true with the North East of India. Whether it’s a relaxing and opulent tea plantation stay to soothe one’s soul or a journey into a quiet place to experience a festival celebrated by a certain community for those who wish to explore, there’s something for every kind of traveller.
