North East India is a paradise still unexplored. Also known as the Seven Sisters, the region comprises seven hill states each with a distinct cultural heritage, ethnicity and language. Historically, North East was the most isolated part of India; but no more.
The rich biodiversity, unparalleled natural beauty and colourful tribal festivals of this remote corner of the country now attract inquisitive travellers from around the globe.
The wild majesty of the frontier state Arunachal Pradesh has a magical charm which lures visitors to marvel at its splendid flora and fauna, taste its delicious ethnic cuisines and witness religious traditions. Roughly 13% of the state’s population are devotees of Tibetan Buddhism who are settled largely in the districts surrounding their spiritual centre in Tawang.
Founded in AD 1680, Tawang Monastery is the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery in India. Situated in Tawang town at an elevation of 3300 meters, the mesmerizing Buddhist citadel houses a centre for cultural studies and is home to 450 lamas.
The degree of openness which exists at this holiest of sanctuaries and the accessibility of resident monks will certainly inspire every enthusiast of yoga, mantra chanting and meditation in their daily practice!
India is a land vast as it is rich in historical, religious and cultural diversity and a journey here promises regular encounters with the unknown and the unexpected.
