I have often heard stories from my Army friends in tit bits from their postings in Arunachal, Nagaland, Assam or Sikkim. At my best, I guess most I know has been about the NE states & their capitals, or that Cherrapunji is the place with highest rainfall (at least used to be)..Well like some of us, I too am either ignorant of or uninterested in the cultures, ideas, or peoples outside one's own experience especially of North East India. This is where this book account comes in as a wonderful illu ...more

Book Review:
‘Travel across India’ is almost on everyone’s ‘To-do before I die list’ and this guide to go backpacking to Northeast India is just what one needs to carry around. Abhijeet Deshpande along with his wife Navita embarks a journey which will make you jealous of pure and unfiltered travel experience, which is very skillfully penned down in Backpacking North East India. This curious journey will indeed keep you on toes as you are enthralled to see the cities, tourist must-visit places, an

Expressive, Engaging and Evocative

North East has been a ‘destination less traveled’ and is officially labeled as a

Well written... North east bound travellers will definitely get a good perspective. Local state government s shoukd realise the potential of tourism and the boost it would give to local economy.

Well written, comprehensively covered most of the north east. Travellers will definitely get a good perspective. Hope the local governments too pitch in and make it more tourist friendly as in meghalaya.

This book expanded my knowledge about under-explored places in the North East. For instance, how many of us know of the white-sand beaches of Siang in Pasighat or about the carnivorous Pitcher Plants in Jarain ? It helped me in understanding the similarities and differences in culture. What I liked is that while the book brought these states closer to me, it did not shy away from talking about the nuisance and futility of bandhs, visible impact of receding insurgencies, how they had to break an ...more
