The Assam and Nagaland region of North East India is world renowned for its tea plantations, ancient cultural traditions and vast range of wildlife. With national parks, well-preserved cultural traditions and a successful agricultural sector, it is easy to see why people consider this region as authentic and still very much untouched by major tourism, where a slower pace takes over.
Off the beaten track for the regular tourist, the region's cultural heritage has been retained and the traditions that visitors see the Naga people performing are much the same as what would have been seen many centuries ago.
As well as cultural heritage, the region's tea plantations still pay homage to India’s colonial past and indeed this industry remains an important part in Assam’s local economy. In addition to their economic significance, the lush green expanses of the tea plantations are a key feature of the stunning countryside.
For all the culture, landscape and heritage, the pièce de résistance of Assam is its wildlife. The Kaziranga National Park is one of the country’s most sought after wildlife destinations, the 430 square km park is a hotspot for elephants, water buffalo, swamp deer, Indian one-horned rhinoceroses and, thanks to recent conservation efforts, a growing tiger population.
If you are seeking a slower-paced, more in depth experience of India, then a trip to Assam and Nagaland simply must form part of your itinerary.
