Here are some of the country's densest forests, interspersed with high Alpine meadows. The area is a paradise, with rolling hills and lush greenery. The orchids and other brilliant flowers that thrive in the region's high humidity are particularly exotic

Sharing boundaries the other six North Eastern states is Assam, the largest of them all, where the Ahom dynasty arrived in 1228 from North Thailand, defeated the Kamrupa ruler and established a kingdom called Assam. According to legend, this is where Kamadeva, the God of Love, was reborn. Guwahati, which lyrically translates as "Eastern City of Lights," is the capital of the state that encompasses the Brahmaputra River's plain south of Arunachal Pradesh and the kingdom of Bhutan, before it transforms south into Bangladesh.

Hiuen Tsang Assam has enticed travellers with her aura of myth and mystery, heritage of mythology, arts, textiles, music and dances, nature and wildlife since the days of the Chinese traveller. Many tribal people live in the state, and one of the highlights of the tour is a visit to Tawang Monastery, the spiritual centre of the Mopnas, a gentle and courteous Buddhist people.

Another of the North Eastern states, Meghalaya, literally means "abode of the clouds," a fitting description of the lovely state. The capital, Shillong, is surrounded by several tribal villages, including those of the Garo, Khasi, and Jaintia tribes, each of which has its own distinct culture and way of life and was an independent kingdom until annexed by the British.
