Hi,

I am planning to make a visit to 3/4 states in NE. Idea is to go to the good place and stay there for 1/2 days.. Do not want to cover all the places. I have prepared one draft, so would be great if you can advice me on this, places etc.


Start End
30th Apr Guwahati
01-May 04-May Meghalaya (Shillong/Cherapunji)
05-May 10-May Arunachal (Tawang)
11-May 13-May Darjeeling/ Kalimpong
14-May 17-May Sikkim
18th-May Delhi

Travel is included in between these dates.

Regards
Yash

Thanks for the reply.

I have travelled to Mizoram and Assam recently. So target is on other states. Apologies for not putting the specific details earlier.

Arunachal: I heard about Tawang, that this is a fantastic place to go. I am planning to go there, So If you can help me on this, not only about Tawang but also about the good spots in between where I can spend 1/2 days.

Sikkim: I dont have any idea on this. I would like to go for some places where there is not much tourists, so in way want to go to some good places (scenic and natural beauty) but offbeat areas.

Meghalaya: Currenly I am thinking of Shillong/ Cherapunji.

Regards
Yash

No problem at all.. Ive been to Tawang..its amazing , but extremely cold. You need to go to Tezpur in Assam and then drive down via Bhalukpong, Tipi, Bomdila-Dirang-Sela Pass and Tawang . You can check my blog on AP. You need to break your journey . Suggest you stay in Tezpur and a night in Dirang-Its very beautiful . You can go beyond Tawang to see the frozen lakes . In Tawang, you can see the monastery, the gompas, the war memorial

Sikkim - I would suggest Pelling, Nathulla-Tsango Lake , Yumthang and Gurudongmar Lake

I missed Shillong , but I think the destinations you have decided are great .

Have a great trip

Thanks for the valuation information. Howz is Arunachal in terms of ppl. In Mizoram, people were quite helpful and friendly. I hope the same in Arunachal. Any suggestion on travel to Tawang from Tezpur is welcome. Are they defined time intervals of buses or shared SUMO there?

Regards
Yash

Shared Sumo is available..heavy security is there . You need a permit. Avoid public transport. WE didnt have any problem with the people..not overtly friendly either ..but helpful
