seven sisters of north-east India

Many of the places to visit in North East India still retain their rustic charm offering plenty to see and do to those looking for an offbeat travel experience. Sikkim, the most recent addition to North East India, has slowly grown into one of the top snow-laden destinations in India. Assam, the most populous state of the region, is an excellent mixture of historical sites, age-old temples and rich biodiversity. Arunachal Pradesh bordering China charms with its peaceful lifestyle, warm hospitality and the many famous monasteries serving as centres for spirituality. Meghalaya, right next to Assam, houses natural and artificial marvels such as the living root bridges and Mawlynong, the cleanest village in Asia respectively.
