“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page” – Saint Augustine. Travelling is all about exploring unknown places, becoming familiar with people who do not share your food habits or your culture. Traveling opens the windows of the world to show what a beautiful place we live in and the variety of landscapes there are. People, culture, food and nature all combine to give an exhilarating experience of a lifetime. India is a vast and geographically vibrant country with sands, seas, mountains and everything in between. There is hardly another country such as India where you can find all types of Nature’s delight. But if you are a mountain-lover and are keen to explore them, the North East India is probably the second best option to exploring the Himalayas. Before you really step out and see all the grandeur with your own eyes, feast yourself by checking out these super cool Instagram handles that are post some awesome, breath-taking pictures of the region.
