You’ve taken in the chaos of manic Mumbai, you’ve lounged on the peaceful beaches of Goa, you’ve fallen in love with the lakeside paradise of Udaipur. So, what’s next?
How about a region that’s equal parts remote and beautiful? A part of India that’s largely overlooked by travellers, a section of the world that brims with mountain villages, waterfalls and wetlands, wildlife reserves and national parks.
Welcome to Northeast India, a selection of states that are simply awe-inspiring in their good looks. In celebration of both the area and Intrepid’s new expedition there, we asked Northeast-native Pravin Tamang, Intrepid’s General Manager in India (and talented photographer), if he could share a few photos with us.
Prepare yourself for lush greenery (the area’s known for its monsoons), Darjeeling’s Toy Train (who doesn’t want a romantic, steam-powered locomotive ride in the Himalayas?), Ima Keithel (an inspirational 100% female-run bazaar), and so much more. This region is a must-visit for adventurers, and these photos barely scratch the surface…
