Tour of Nord East India

Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland

The Arunachal Pradesh is, among the Indian states of the Northeast, the northernmost and borders directly with China and Burma, today's Myanmar. For strategic or war reasons it has therefore long been closed to tourism and is today one of the wildest places in India and perhaps in Asia. Here the railway does not arrive, omnipresent in India, nor are there direct flights to this state. Semi-isolation has favoured the preservation of millenary traditions guarded by the tribals who still live here.
