Undoubtedly the largest river island in India, this place is the home for exotic flora and fauna, besides being a biodiversity heritage site.
Created by the river Brahmaputra, the island has cottages for tourists, where you can enjoy your stay and interact with the local communities, the Ahoms and the Deoris.
If you are looking for a secluded place with exquisite scenic beauty, this should be the first place on your list of North East holiday destinations.
This is the largest freshwater lake in North East India, which is a favourite destination for most people with wanderlust. The main catch of this place is the Keibul Lamjao National Park, probably the only floating national park in the world.
It is located on a ‘humid’, island, and provides refuge to the endangered Sangai deer. If you have an interest in bird watching, you may be thrilled to know that the lake is the home for about 57 species of water birds, of which 28 are said to be migrating from beyond the Himalayas.
Also known as the valley of flowers, the Dzukou Valley is a trekking paradise for all travellers. In summer, a thick carpet of exotic flowers welcomes your stay, while in winter, you may even walk on snow, if your luck favours.
