North East India

Wedged between Tibet, Mynamar and Bangladesh the North East of India is a treasure trove of tribal groups, remote Tibetan monasteries, nature reserves, and tea plantations. Many of the states require permits to visit them, both for foreigners and for other Indians. This combined with its remoteness from the rest of India, only attached by a thin strip of land affectionately known as the “Chicken’s Neck” results in an outstanding area almost devoid of international tourists.

As with our other destinations we believe that interaction with people is key to a memorable trip. Our relationship with local people allows us to join Adi tribesmen on a traditional hunting trip, stay over night at a monastery with Buddhist nuns, meet a Bon Shaman and dine with men who were once head-hunters.
