North East

The seven sisters as they are fondly called are the group of states comprising the North Eastern region of India. The states are Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura . This region is a true frontier having a long international border shared with four countries. Since time immemorial, it has been the meeting point of many communities, faiths and cultures. North East is renowned for its magical beauty and bewildering diversity with each state having distinct culture and traditions. Nature creates an enchanting and romantic atmosphere in winters when mist carpets the valleys and swirls in hills during summer rains. The monsoon brings heavy rain, and thunderstorms sweep across the hills, valleys, powerful rivers, plains and dense jungles.
Each state is a travellers paradise providing fascinating insight into Natures marvels and there are numerous wild life sanctuaries and national parks sheltering rare animals, birds and plants. Besides this the states provides great scope for angling, boating, rafting, trekking and hiking.

We were the only one on the road and River Rangit was there, revealing its beauty to prove Aaroop right. Yes!!! Rangit was dancing, flirting and romancing with us. I have traveled along rivers in Uttaranchal, Himachal but nothing like this.
