Uncovering Assam & Nagaland (18 days)

The cultural and ethnic diversity of India’s northeast make a tour of Assam and Nagaland a unique experience. Sandwiched between Bhutan, China, Myanmar, and Bangladesh the region is home to many different ethnic groups with their own distinct culture and language. This 18-day journey of discovery begins in the atmospheric and alluring city of Kolkata before moving on to Shillong, home to the Khasi tribes – one of the only matriarchal societies in India and builders of Meghalaya’s famed living bridges. The tour continues into Assam following the mighty Brahmaputra River to the Kaziranga National Park, sanctuary of the Great One-Horned Rhino, before heading to Jorhat to jump on an extremely interesting and deeply memorable ferry transfer to Majuli Island, a cradle of un-touched Assamese tribal culture. The next stop of your tour is remote Nagaland, India’s last frontier, to meet the fierce Nagas on the border of India and Myanmar. Your trip finishes with a stay at a lovely tea plantation bungalow amongst the rolling tea estates of Dibrugarh, Assam’s principal tea-growing area. This tour features some of the remotest areas of India where the best available accommodation is often a homestay with a local family. These host families tend to be friendly, but facilities can be a little basic.
