Why Book this tour
This tour is ideal for people wanting to experience a different side of India. This busy itinerary travels through the remote north eastern states and spends time in Nagaland, a state more akin to South East Asia. The roads may be bumpy and the accommodation simple but the rewards for travelling through this little visited region are great with a chance to explore villages where headhunting was still taking place as late as the 1960s.
