beauty of north east

North-East India is lesser explored part of India but it is one of the most pristine, blissful and soul cleansing regions of India. This part of the country comprises of the Seven Sister States, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura and some parts of Sikkim.

Musical Inspiration

People here have an ear for good music and almost every corner will boast of a musician. Shillong, the capital town of Meghalaya, is also known as the Rock Music Capital of India. Legendary musician Lou Majaw hails from the state of Meghalaya, so does Soulmate, one of India’s best blues band. There is no better experience when it comes to music here. Imagine the beautifuland less populated mountains, fresh air to breathe and peace to the T. Make sure you attend the Ziro Festival of Music in Arunachal Pradesh, which is a highly sought-after musical fixture in the country.

Assam’s Kaziranga National Park is a World Heritage Site and it hosts two-thirds of the world’s great one-horned rhinoceroses. In 1975, one-horned rhinos were almost extinct with only 600 of them remaining in the jungles of Nepal and India. Here you can take a safari tour and while you see elephants, wild water buffaloes, swamp deers and a wide variety of birds, you can also oggle at the hard work put in at this National Park.
