Honeymoon in North-East India - (Hidden Treasures) - The 22 km wide Siliguri Corridor separates the north-eastern states of India from the mainland. Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Mizoram, Manipur and Mizoram are geographically close but a heterogeneous mix of people resides in this enchanting corner of India.
Leading an isolated existence for decades, the North East is furtively opening its doors to the rest of the world to reveal its many splendid attractions. Blessed with a fairly moderate climate and very heavy monsoon rains, the north-eastern states have a topography that has largely been shaped by the Brahmaputra and the Barak rivers. The Himalayas and the Meghalaya Plateau enclose much of the north-east's unique biodiversity, which ranges from lush tropical forests to tea plantations to oil-bearing fields and wildlife sanctuaries. In Sikkim, where the Himalayas occupy all its territory, snow capped peaks, glaciers and lakes give way to stark and desolate rugged mountain slopes.
Arunachal Pradesh is a heaven for nature lovers. Its virgin forests are a naturalist's dream and its difficult terrain bursting with opportunities for adventure enthusiasts. Apart from treks, the powerful Brahmaputra has sections galore for all levels of white water rafting. Bomdila, Ziro, Tawang, Pasighat, Miao and Namdapha are interesting places to visit in this very mystical state.
In Manipur, discover the rich culture of the locals through their display of classic dances and martial arts. The Loktak Lake is one of the state's most splendid possessions. The rainy state of Meghalaya has enchanting hill stations like Shillong and fascinating tribal culture, even as Cherrapunjee cuts a different landscape with its limestone caves.
Mizoram, nestled within the Mizo Hills is typified by exotic flora and swift flowing streams. The Mizos have zealously guarded their ancient culture of which you may catch a glimpse of in any of their 10 sprightly dances. Nagaland is wild and beautiful, and cautious treks into peaks like Japfu and the Dzukou valley reveal its tightly held secrets.
