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.
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.
