India, the land of contrast, is at the south of Asia on the world map. Destination visitors are familiar with places such as Taj Mahal and Delhi in India. But not many are familiar with those places that are remote and hidden amidst nature. But mind you, they are as enchanting as the others.
The Northeast India is an unexplored and wild land that is worth visiting. Transportation is not a problem here. One can easily take a plane or train. With public transportations anyone can explore the area inside. There are also accommodations to book to spend the night. Various tour packages are also available. Tourism has been improved a lot to call in more visitors.
Below are the top 5 best places of interest at Northeast India that guarantees adventures and lovely beautiful panoramic view.
1. Kaziranga National Park, Assam
Kaziranga National Park is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is located in Assam. It is the home to elephants, buffaloes, monkeys, birds and many more species. The highlight of this park is the world famous one-horned rhinoceros and tigers. The national park has the largest population of Asian rhinos and has the highest density of tigers found anywhere in the world. Due to the wondrous tall grasses it quite hard to spot these majestic predators. It has the perfect environment for wildlife with vast area for vegetation and a perfect terrain as well. February to March is the most ideal time of the year for visit as the grasses are low at that time. The park can be explored by both elephant and jeep drives. I would prefer elephant rides.
2. Majuli, Large River Island, Assam
India is a host to the largest river island in the world, Majuli, situated in Assam. The island is located at the middle of the mighty River Brahmaputra which somehow magically manages to embalm the island in its serene flow of waters. You will be mesmerized by the unique culture and tradition of the people in and around the island. They have endless plantations of rice paddies, intricate weaving products, and the perfect pottery. If you are a nature love this place is worth visiting and the best place for bird watching.
3. Cherrapunji, Meghalaya, India Weather and forecast
The wettest place on earth, Cherrapunji or Sohra is located at the state of Meghalaya that you cannot afford to miss. The town is located on top of a plateau overlooking Bangladesh and surrounding the plateau is a lush forest. The location gives a perfect view with clouds constantly covering the landscape. Once you are there do not miss the living bridges that are actually roots of trees connected by locals over many decades to cross the many hard streams and rivers generating a mesmerizing view throughout the year.
4. Tawang Monastery, Arunachal Pradesh
Tawang Monastery is the largest monastery in India built in the 1680’s. It is located in Arunachal Pradesh which is known as the remotest frontier in India. The walls have a rich collection of scriptures, manuscripts and books. For any Buddhist pilgrim, the monastery certainly holds many secrets and provides sanctity to practice the religion. Arunachalis feasts and merry make the whole year.
5. Umiam Lake, Tourist Places, Meghalaya
The Umiam Lake is an artificial lake located in the green serene hills of Meghalaya, the abode of clouds. The lake management offer different sports and water recreational facilities such as kayaking, water cycling and boating. The lake is also a source of electricity, irrigation, and fishery. A boutique 5 star property is recently owned named Ri-Kynjai to promote tourism in the state. It is undoubtedly one of the places worth visiting in India. You will otherwise regret its miss.
Best Time to Visit Northeast
November to April is the most ideal to visit Northeast India. Because the weather during this time is ideal for outdoors watch with warm/sunny days and cool/cold nights. Summers are good for watching cloud formations and the serene green landscape.
