The North-East is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse regions in India. Each of the eight states that form this part of India has its own culture and tradition. Assam occupies the lush lowlands of the Brahmaputra Valley and is the most densely populated. Arunachal Pradesh occupies the densely forested and sparsely populated foothills of the Himalayas, and is one of the major tourist attractions because of its Buddhist influence.

Meghalaya, with its pine-clad hills and lakes, is famous as the wettest region of the world. Nagaland has a rich war history that attracts tourists. Sikkim is renowned for its Buddhist monastries, like the Rumtek and the Namchi.

The other three states - Manipur, known as the 'land of jewels', Mizoram and Tripura make up a fascinating area consisting of green valleys and lush hills with variety of flora and fauna.
