The north east is made up of eight states: Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura
If you want to cover all the states in one trip, you will need around 15 days to cover the entire north east. But, if you’re looking to cover each state one by one, 5-7 days are enough for each state.
Mizoram is the most pocket-friendly state to visit in the northeast.
Absolutely yes, it is safe to travel to the north east.
Following are the major international airports in the north east:
Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport, Guwahati
Imphal International Airport, Manipur
Silchar Airport, Assam
Dibrugarh Airport, Assam
Dimapur Airport, Nagaland
Agartala Airport, Tripura
Sikkim was made a part of the north east on 15th May 1975.
Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura do not need any permits to visit. Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur and Nagaland, however, require an ILP or Inner Line Permit to visit.
Guwahati is the best place to start a road trip across the North East. It is one of the biggest cities in the region when you can get the Inner Line Passes for other states quite easily.
Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim are the two north east states that receive seasonal snowfall during winter.
The sobriquet of Seven Sisters was first coined in 1972 by a journalist named Jyoti Prakash Salgia during the inaugural foundation of these northeastern states of India. Despite the ethnic disparities, all the states in the region share similar geographical and cultural features. Initially, they also shared the isolation from the rest of India which lead to a mutual interdependence of social, political, and economic nature. Though Sikkim joined this group in 1975, it is often referred to as a brother rather than the eighth sister. Therefore, these northeastern states are still collectively referred to as the seven sisters.
Overall, it was a great tour organized by Yatra Organizer. We enjoyed it a lot.
