East and North East India with Jasmine Trails
East and North East India
Click map to enlarge
A truly exotic and off-beat part of the country, eastern and north-eastern India cover a large area of fertile plains, scenic coastlines and Himalayan peaks. Being off the usual tourism grid, it offers extremely relaxing and unique experiences.
The plains of Odisha, West Bengal and Bihar offer much in terms of tangible heritage – incredible temples, Buddhist pilgrimage sites, and bustling modern yet historic cities. The exciting sensory overload of these places is countered by serenity of lush forests, misty clouds, rolling tea estates and the sounds of nature of the north-eastern region.
This region consists of eight very small states in the Eastern Himalaya bordering Tibet, China, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan. Its lofty mountains, deep valleys and glacial lakes, as well as its mighty rivers and dense jungles are the perfect playground for the intrepid adventure traveler who can indulge in trekking, rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, and mountaineering.
The majority of the east and northeast is inhabited by ethnic tribes and ancient communities, whose very unique cultures and languages stand at the brink of extinction in the face of modernity. Take the plunge to discover this truly extraordinary part of India.
