Brief: Before Independence this entire area was known as Assam Province. Time to time seven different states have been separated from the same area. The region is also known as the land of seven sisters.

The North eastern states are very different in many ways from the other part of India. These States have the maximum number of Tribles living within. Many tribal languages are spoken throughout these seven states. The northeastern states have the highest percentage of Christians. Territory wise this region is the most sensitive region touching many countries like China, Tibet, Bhutan, Myanmar & Bangladesh. Permits to visit the states of Assam, Meghalaya & Tripura are no longer required. Permits to other states are to be obtained from the local office.

The states are famous for their scenic beauty. The states also have many other tourists attractions like Kaziranga wild life sanctuary where one can see one horned Rhinoceros and the famous Tawang Gompa-most important Gompa in North.
